Old Republic International’s (NYSE) program sought the addition of a new executive conference facility in its downtown Chicago office tower that would provided state-of-the-art media capabilities and video teleconferencing technology. New World’s resulting design provided Old Republic with a technologically sophisticated facility within the classical aesthetic that was required.
Comprehensive wireless technology was integrated into the boardroom design allowing for mobile operation of video teleconferencing, video/audio presentations, microphone levels, room lighting, and window blinds. All of the above, along with upgraded mechanicals, was achieved in a very tight slab to slab dimension of 9’-3”.
Extensive millwork was used throughout to provide the “Federalist” aesthetic that the client requested. Other design features include a hand-crafted plaster dome, extensive custom millwork and updated washrooms.
