FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Host and Interior Designer, Kalyn Rothaus, works with experts in user-friendly office technology, integrated technology systems, visualization solutions, privacy shades and furniture to create employee-friendly meeting spaces.
(DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – PR LOG – April 1, 2015) Office Spaces™, a reality office design series welcomes Leviton, Complete Integrated Tech, Barco, Draper and Arnold Contract on Monday, April 4, 2016 at 7:00 AM (ET/PT) on Lifetime®. Produced by BrandStar’s award-winning home improvement show Designing Spaces®, Office Spaces offers a twist — the remodeling, renovations and redesign will be filmed on location for its own new corporate headquarters, located next door to their current site.
The following partners helped make it possible:
User-Friendly Office Technology – with Leviton
The major challenge with technology in an office space is creating an environment where it’s user friendly for employees. Kalyn and BrandStar IT Director, Adam Brown, didn’t want anyone to feel discouraged about using technology during a presentation so they turned to Leviton. Leviton provided BrandStar with not only the actual hardware needed, but also touch panels that actually control all of the technology through one device. Leviton provides the most comprehensive range of solutions to meet the needs of today’s residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Leveraging more than a century of experience, Leviton helps customers create safe, sustainable, intelligent environments with a deep product offering that ranges from smart switches, receptacles and daylight harvesting controls to networking systems, intelligent safety controls and equipment for charging electric vehicles.

Bringing it All Together – with Complete Integrated Technology
On this episode of Office Spaces, the job of Complete Integrated Technology is to integrate all of the components of the building or system, which means they touch a large part of the technology from high voltage to low voltage systems, and make all of the parts work together. “The Twins”, founders of Complete Integrated Technology, always shared an interest in electronics and as things progressed, this hobby quickly turned into a long-term business venture. Jason and Justin came to BrandStar for this project and helped the workers from Barco, Draper and Leviton with the installation and integration of their products.

Taking Total Control of Content – with Barco
To help bring Kalyn’s vision of cutting edge boardrooms to life, she enlisted the help of Dan Corr and David Fitzgerald from Barco. Barco is a world leader in professional visualization solutions, employing decades of in-depth market knowledge and technological expertise to design and develop large-screen visualization solutions. The meeting spaces at BrandStar will include some Barco products like Clickshare buttons, a 20-foot screen with blended projectors, and the X2O Platform. The X20 Platform will allow BrandStar to take the content they are creating and distribute it throughout the office. Visit www.barco.com/en/ to see all of their solutions.
Ensuring Privacy Inside and Outside the Office – with Draper
Along with all of the cutting-edge technology being installed in the two conference rooms, Kalyn’s design plan calls for custom made projection screens and roller shades for privacy. Everything needs to be controlled by one device, so Kalyn’s design challenge was to find a company that could provide custom options for hide away screens and privacy at the press of a button. That’s why she called on Matt Schultz from Draper, a company that has been making window shades since 1902 and been in the projection screen business since 1957.

A Connected Conference Room Table – with Arnold Contract
The centerpiece of a conference room should be the table. That’s why Kalyn decided to work with Arnold Contract, one of America’s most distinguished furniture manufacturers, known for their handcrafted, American made furniture. Their beautiful craftsmanship is evident in their extensive collection of highly versatile, quality contract furniture products, including conference tables, reception desks, and casegoods. Kalyn’s design for a media company of the future called for a conference table truly tied with technology and Arnold Contract delivered.
