CoStar, a leading commercial real estate information company, used Connectrac Wireways to power training room facilities at their new Washington D.C. headquarters.
CoStar, a leading commercial real estate information company, moved their headquarters’ training facility into an existing LEED-Certified building in downtown Washington D.C. Within the facility, each employee would have their own CPU with dual monitors, requiring power and data access at every station. A key challenge was providing cable management that would meet the robust connectivity needed within the space while minimizing construction costs and disruption. With the training facility situated directly above the building’s main lobby, the intrusive and expensive process of core drilling did not appeal to either of the project’s designers or the owners.
Emily McVeigh, Project Director and Project Designer of Envision Design, Washington, D.C. recommended Connectrac wireways. Using the In-Carpet wireway, she worked with Connectrac and the project team to design an unobtrusively-integrated technology solution. The layout at CoStar accommodated operable partitions, adding even more functionality to the space. Connectrac systems offer fully accessible cable pathways and are easily reconfigured, which means they don’t become obsolete. The building has now been extensively remodeled to serve CoStar’s cable management needs. Through Connectrac wireways, the CoStar employees have full power and data available with a non-obtrusive and easily accessible cable pathway.
