Verizon, LTE Experience Center

Design of a showcase space

The Verizon LTE Experience Center has a 20,000 square-foot showcase space as well as two floors of office space. The Experience Center is used to demonstrate new technologies. Verizon’s goal was to have a space that was flexible to accommodate various meetings with potential business partners, customers, and investors. 

Highlights of the showcase include high-end public areas, three demonstration rooms, meeting rooms, a twenty-two seat conference room with Cisco Telepresence Videoconferencing system, a cafeteria and a 32-person theater space with a 22 foot wide curved video wall as well as a 12-rack server room which is the backbone of the Experience Center.

The LTE Experience Center is backed up by a 160 kVA UPS, and also backed up by an existing on-site Verizon generator. The server room has precision 24/7 cooling to ensure that the network maintains maximum uptime.

The lighting system in the Experience Center is flexible, integrated, and energy efficient.  Daylight harvesting was implemented at all exterior lighting zones. Lighting in all of the presentation spaces was integrated into the AV control system. Energy efficient LED light fixtures were specified in many of the spaces to meet the LEED Gold requirements.

The upper two office space floors of the building consisted of open office space, enclosed private offices, conference and training rooms, pantries, and IDF rooms on each floor.
