At 1,100 feet, the Wilshire Grand Center is the tallest building in America, west of the Mississippi river. It features 900 luxury hotel rooms, 20 floors of office space, restaurants, retail space and a 70th-floor observation deck and pool.
Exante360 IT network designers and project managers provided design and consulting services for the building’s data network and related systems. Exante360 set the IT guidelines for the design-build project and validated every aspect of the technical solution as presented by the integrator to ensure adherence to budget, timeline, desired functionality as well as to achieve the building’s LEED Gold Certification.
Benefit to the Client
Exante360's project team brought extensive prior experience with multi-use projects of similar scope and complexity. This allowed for a lessons-learned approach to unforeseen challenges and kept the project budget within two standard deviations.
The design of an enterprise IT network in a multi-use skyscraper requires collaboration with many stakeholders. This aspect made the project challenging, but also rewarding for everybody involved.
