Upon entering the reception area at the Consolidated Laboratories, visitors can see Aetna’s state-of-the-art information services technology all around them. Five portrait mounted digital signage monitors enhance the reception waiting room. Beyond the reception desk and shimmering metallic curtain are nearly 200 testing stations.

In the demonstration and teaching center, a compact lecture theater seats six participants and is controlled by a technographer. Images are projected onto a curved presentation wall from a ceiling mounted projector. Two speakers are hidden from view behind a mesh screen cloud ceiling.

In the open office area, two back to back AV conference rooms occupy a glazed island centered in the middle of the space. Each conference room is outfitted with large flat panel monitors and flip top control panels. The conference rooms and workstations in the open office utilize a low profile raise floor for electrical and tel/data cabling.
