The Brookfield Conference Center provides a flexible new space for events, while celebrating the city and the region.
With 40,000 SF of meeting space and an 18,000 SF ballroom, the center is flexible for a variety of events, both leisure and business. The facility provides a large pre-function space with high-end interior finishes, multiple breakout conference rooms, a full-service kitchen, office space and a 9,000 SF outdoor garden.
The MEP, lighting and low-voltage systems are fully integrated into the design to complement the interior design and finishes. The facility features high-end lighting for interior spaces, exterior façade lighting celebrating the building architecture and a state-of-the-art audiovisual system.
Interior and exterior lighting design brings the new Brookfield Conference Center to life. Clean lines of light continue as repeated modules within each meeting space and come together as a cohesive design when the space is fully opened. The raised volume of the main ballroom is washed with light on the exterior façade. Area plaza lighting is provided through decorative festoons, creating a flexible and magical layer of light.
Low voltage design consisted of voice/data infrastructure, video surveillance, electronic access control and audiovisual systems. EXP designed high density wi-fi to meet the networking demands of the conference center’s densely populated ballroom and gathering spaces. Wired networking infrastructure supports administrative functions and integrated technology systems. The IP-based video surveillance system monitors public and common areas and provides general coverage of the ballroom spaces.
The audiovisual system is comprised of background music, sound amplification speakers and video projectors mounted to architecturally hidden scissor lifts. The fully networked audiovisual system is controlled by intuitively programmed touch panels and themed input plates.
