55 Spring Gardens brings you something strictly unconventional, bending the rules normally applied to traditional office space. If you’re looking for a confident, forward thinking work space in the heart of Manchester, you’ve found it!
55 Spring Gardens has been transformed into a stunning, Grade A office space, ideal for the modern occupier.
As part of the redevelopment of 55 Spring Gardens, Image Technique were appointed as the main contractor for implementing the signage, entrance portico lighting, digital media and audio throughout the main entrance foyer and lift lobbies within the building.
Working in conjunction with both ADT Workplace, FRA and MBE Glazing, we initially developed the lighting and signage specification for the glazed entrance portico to encompass a DMX controlled, full colour changing entrance structure that is not only visable from outside, but returns within the entrance foyer of the building itself.
Following on from the initial phase of the project, Image Technique were commissioned by CBRE and ADT Workplace to implement a fully integrated digital media and atmospheric audio system. This was a fully customised system designed for 55 SPG by Image Technique alongside our strategic software development partner Acquire Digital.
The project resulted in a spectacular colour changing entrance feature complete with vertically stacked brushed stainless steel letters and over head entrance numerals internally illuminated and adhered to the glazing.
Internally we implemented a digitally projected tenant directory, complete with subtle animation, a branded colour changing ‘gobo’ projector for corporate events and a series of indvidual media screens within privacy booths complete with full wireless connectivity.
The showpiece was the videowall, constructed of 9No 55” ultra thin bezel commercial screens complete with fully wireless connectivity via handheld tablet that has the custom built software loaded onto the desktop. This enables the user to interact with the videowall via a series of ‘mode’ switches, allowing 4K content to be displayed from the pre-configured library complete with atmospheric sounds, a direct feed for live televison and finally a presentation mode feature to allow third party content to be displayed at the swipe of the screen or at the touch of a button.
