UMB Bank commissioned Bell/Knott & Associates to upgrade and modernize their 30 year old corporate auditorium. The existing facility was showing its age in both the condition of the finishes as well as the underlying mechanical and electrical systems. The space was gutted to allow for relocation and replacement of mechanical system components, thus greatly reducing noise levels within the space. Working within the existing structural limitations the design team was able to create a larger space focused on a central stage. LED Lighting was provided and integrated into the audiovisual system, allowing for teleconferencing and broadcasting from within the space. Extensive coordination with the audiovisual consultant was mandatory to make the project a success.
