WW Wellness Company Expands their Crestron AV Upgrade

INTRODUCTION

Creation Networks nstalled a New Crestron audio visual and video wall solution in their San Francisco facility. As part of their new re-brand from Weight Watchers to WW, they wanted to be able to communicate their new brand position to everyone in the facility.


35,000 sq ft. - 2 Locations

Over 15 new audio visual rooms including executive conference rooms, offices, huddle and training rooms, conferences rooms all completed on time and on budget.

THE CHALLENGE

Creation Networks worked with the design team for both the San Francisco and New York office. Weight Watchers relocated the San Francisco office with over 130 employees into a 35,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility. Most, notably they needed a flexible all-hands space to host a wide variety of events for their staff and partners Weight Watchers wanted a facility that could accommodate growth, as their workforce is expected to grow dramatically in the coming years

THE SOLUTION

The Weight Watchers team was looking for intuitive solutions for every area of their workplace. In the San Francisco lobby, there is a ten foot wide LCD video wall. Zoom Rooms are standard in many conference & huddle rooms and Crestron was used for video distribution & control for presentations. Biamp, Lab Gruppen and Shure are incorporated for the audio system and Vaddio cameras and NEC projectors are used for the open space in their cafe. Room availability is controlled with Crestron room schedulers throughout the space. Flexibility and scalability were integral to this project. Creation Networks provided a rock-solid technology infrastructure that our organization can depend on both now and in the future.

THE TECHNOLOGY

WW’s customers are the beneficiaries of engaged and motivated employees. The goal of the new office was to create a work experience that would be a favorite for employees; a place anyone would want to work. Crestron technology within the office allows team members to collaborate and embrace the opportunity of a hybrid work schedule. With Crestron , it is easy for employees to collaborate with their teams and remote workers while remaining productive. The range of the Crestron platform allowed WW to embrace different form factors to scale the audio and video experience appropriately for every space.


In WW’s busy office, the Crestron and Microsoft Room Scheduling Panels with Microsoft Teams® software help foster a productive work environment where employees can book rooms like a hotel. Employees have embraced the scheduling system, structuring meeting room usage and streamlining management of these spaces. WW employees were able to quickly learn to use the technology and now they see it as a natural extension of their workplace.
