By masterfully combining Art Deco architectural beauty with future-forward technologies and sustainable cable, Sinclair Holdings, LLC and partners have renovated and revitalized a 1930s-era historic landmark in Fort Worth, Texas, into an unprecedented Sustainable Intelligent Building – one that provides immense energy efficiency, savings on both construction time and cost and an unrivaled hospitality experience – all run on DC power and Superior Essex Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) cable.
The Building Industry Consulting Service International (BICSI) is a professional association that supports the advancement of the information and communications technology (ICT) community. It provides education and training, hosts conferences and events, maintains credentialing and certification processes and shares best practices and reference materials with its members in over 100 countries. And when they wanted to update the technology inside their world headquarters, BICSI turned to Superior Essex Communications for its future-proof cabling solutions.
By combining one of the most important books in the world with future-forward communications technology, Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., has created a multi-cultural experience of immersive environments, interactive exhibits and rare artifacts. And to keep it all connected, they trusted Superior Essex to deliver numerous high-quality, reliable cabling solutions for voice, data, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and complex A/V applications – all working together to captivate generations for decades to come.
Before the building even opened, it was touted as Marriot’s “hotel of the future,” courtesy of all the cutting-edge technology installed throughout the facility that enables it to realize the benefits from digital capabilities and PoE applications. And by boasting the most advanced, IP-based, digital amenities ever built into a hotel – including LED lighting, sensors, security, access control, WiFi, and even refrigerators and HVAC – the team at Sinclair Holdings has created a truly intelligent, safe and sustainable building – all brought together via Legrand connectivity.
The 35,000 sq. ft. BICSI World Headquarters and Learning Academy, located in Tampa, Florida, was initially built in 1997, and bringing the facility’s technology up to date required a complete overhaul of the cabling infrastructure to transform its outdated data and phone network into a truly integrated intelligent building. The headquarters now showcases the breadth and quality of Legrand data, power and AV products, thereby maximizing energy efficiency and optimizing occupant productivity.
