Audio Visual specialists collaborate on landmark Globe Point

Globe Point, an impressive new office building, located in the heart of Temple District in Holbeck has opened, boasting high quality finishes, a welcoming reception, café kitchen, collaborative break out workspaces and connections at street level to Leeds city centre.

Developer CEG and contracted construction company BAM approached audio visual specialists Universal AV to curate audio visual solutions for both the reception and atrium area, after working successfully alongside the team on a project at Leeds University.

The brief was to deliver high-quality audio-visual communication solutions that would provide tenants and visitors with an effective source of information and entertainment.

Concepts for a multimedia LED solution were produced and modified as the brief from Globe Point developed. The team at Universal AV worked to simplify the functionality of the solutions for ease of use whilst maintaining critical components needed for the space.

Key stakeholders from Globe Point worked alongside Universal AV and together they ensured a successful implementation that was carried out within a set timeframe and budget. Laura Hughes, Front of House Manager at Globe Point commented:

“We have had a great experience with Universal AV to help us set up our media wall. Their staff were helpful when everything was being set up and they have been prompt and friendly to work with when issues have arisen.”

Programming and training took place after the installation was complete with building management and team members.

Standout features include a large LED wall and functionality that allows the concierge to amend feeds on the screen, creating welcome messages to visitors to the building quite simply at the touch of a button.

“The entrance to the building is truly striking, and the LED wall provides a real focal point for the area. The ground floor of Globe Point now features high-quality finishes, with a welcoming reception, café and collaborative breakout areas,” explained Mark Atkinson, Sales Manager at Universal AV

The screens needed to be easy to use without AV technicians, so for familiarity and ease of use an iPad with Extron control was selected and stored in the concierge desk from which inputs to the video sources are selected.

Mark went on to say,

“The reception also includes a further impressive focal point, with a screen which allows one complete image to be displayed across the whole area with the option to select from 4 HDMI sources.”

Nick Fitzpatrick, Managing Director at Universal AV commented:

“It was great to partner with BAM construction again and be introduced to Commercial Estates Group to deliver the first new build in Leeds since the pandemic. A statement build for the new Temple district with technology that provides up to date communication and the wow factor in a relaxed communal area. Flexibility and ease of use were at the core of all conversations and I believe we delivered it.”

The Globe Point building now forms the gateway to the Temple neighbourhood, with its 40,430 square ft of Grade A space spanning over seven floors. It features a roof terrace, offering spectacular views perfect for meeting and entertaining. The building is a 5 minute walk away from Leeds train station and has exceptional access to the motorway network.
