Fusion: Creating Smart Workspaces with AV, Tech, and UX Design

The modern-day office space is getting a shake-up. Gone are the days of gray cubicles and harsh, fluorescent-lit office floors. Contemporary workspaces are seeing a monumental shift in style, design and function, with innovative tech companies like Google and Apple leading the charge.

Silicon Valley start-ups are drafting up corporate campuses that focus on collaboration, play, innovation and superior user experience. So who helps create these workplaces and infuse them with technology, audio and visuals that enhance workflow, not detract from it?

People like Sean McChesney, Experience Technology Consultant for Electrosonic, that’s who. McChesney joins this episode of Fusion to discuss experiential technology in the workplace, elaborating on projects he’s worked on and rising trends he sees developing in the present-day workplace.

With the tech-native Generation Z entering the workforce, offices are focusing more than ever before on seamless user experience. As McChesney puts it, Gen-Z employees are expecting “the iPhone experience” from their workspace, with tech not just for the sake of tech, but intelligently designed for usefulness.

McChesney said implementing well-thought-out AV starts at the foundation, often collaborating with engineers and architects to ensure the company, its employees and guests get what they need from their spaces. This holistic approach fosters long term relationships and has led McChesney to work on projects with esteemed corporations.

At the heart of it all is “collaboration,” McChesney said. Regardless of a company’s size, workplaces are about getting teams in a space where “person to person innovation” happens.

What tech can play a part in fostering play, while aiding in high-output of innovation? By intelligently designing based on data collection, McChesney and Electrosonic craft a customized workspace that suits each company’s needs, budget and use cases.
