ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, November 21, 2022 – Since its founding in 1872, Zurich Insurance Group (Zurich) has grown into one of the largest and most respected insurance groups in the world with more than 56,000 employees spread across 210 countries and territories. In 2015 the group embarked on an ambitious project to upgrade and expand its Zurich headquarters, the Quai Zurich Campus, to meet the highest possible standards of sustainability and seamless A/V integration. To do this, they retained the services of architecture firm Architekt Krischanitz ZT GmbH, Vienna for the new construction, and global acoustic architectural consulting and A/V systems design firm WSDG for the A/V system design and integration.
“Zurich recognized from the early stages of the project the importance of having a high-performance A/V ‘vision’ for the technical infrastructure that would embrace modern workflows and communications while having a minimum environmental footprint,” said WSDG Director of Applied Science and Engineering Dirk Noy. “This led our design team to explore creative solutions to system design that would adhere to these sustainability concepts without compromising the scale of the project or the requirements of an effective hybrid working setup.”
