AGL Energy

Integrated Audio Visual Solution To Reflect A Brand’s Easy, Approachable Style Of Business

AGL Energy’s workplace, built on top of Southern Cross Train Station in Melbourne’s central city, had to adapt readily to the changing needs of the organization and its 1,500 Melbourne-based employees. AGL has adopted a style of working which aims to enhance collaboration, allow for better use of space and resources, and reenergize the workplace. Therefore, the project required an integrated audio visual solution that would provide a consistent look and feel across various systems, was easy for employees to use, and could be monitored and supported remotely.

Diversified worked closely with AGL to tweak the initial brief in order to deliver a consistent experience across all audio visual enabled spaces. AGL had identified early in the process that emerging technologies such as Microsoft room integration and wireless presentation facilities were key in supporting their Activity-Based Working (ABW) model. Diversified worked closely with vendors and AGL to build room prototypes to evaluate the new technologies and determine the best approach to integration.

As the largest ASX-listed owner, operator and developer of renewable energy generation in the country, sustainability was high on AGL’s agenda and achieving a 5-star Green Star rating for its new workplace was a priority.

Diversified provided an integrated audio visual solution to facilitate the objectives of the company. Audio visual systems and services include: 59 collaboration spaces; 8 enclosed meeting rooms; 2 training centers; 29 Microsoft-based video conferencing rooms; 9 open collaboration tables; 1 large function room; 6 open display areas; 35 digital signage displays; 13 interactive displays; 20 huddle rooms; an integrated IPTV and digital signage system; and a system monitoring and performance application.

At the completion of the project, Diversified was engaged to provide a full-time onsite technician resource to provide on-going AV support and training as well as to assist with every day operational performance.
