Challenge:

The historic Sears & Roebuck building first opened for business in 1926. In 2010, Jamestown Development bought the building with the intentions of making it a historic mixed use space. The old building was going to need a major technology upgrade if it was going to support the bustling facility.

Important Considerations:

  • What technology is needed to support the wide variety of tenants inside the building?
  • How can we coordinate between all of the stakeholders?
  • How long will a project of this magnitude take?

Solution:

NTI was hired as a technology consultant for the project, responsible for designing the ITS cabling infrastructure, access control, and CCTV throughout the facility. Within the space, there were multiple GCs, multiple architects, and a lot of unique areas each with specific technology needs. This made coordination critical to the success of the project. Project Managers had to meet with all stakeholders to develop a robust and effective technology solution.

Result:

NTI began working on the technology design in 2012 and finished with the construction administrations in 2016, a year after Ponce City Market opened for business. The entire facility now has an updated and secure infrastructure that’s capable of handling its 300+ tenant’s demands. The 16 acre lot now serves Atlanta as both an iconic landmark and a fun destination.
