Four Seasons Hotel Montreal

Montreal, Quebec, 2019

The Four Seasons hotel in Montreal officially opened for business on October 10, 2019. Featuring 163 guest rooms, 18 private residences and three world-class restaurants, as well as ballrooms, conference rooms, and health and wellness facilities, this iconic building in the heart of downtown Montreal is an upscale destination near some of the most sought-after retail establishments along the city’s famed Sainte-Catherine Street.

The XYZ Cultural Technology team was asked to oversee project management for five different technological aspects while the hotel was being built, namely telecommunications, security, access, audiovisual integration and indoor/outdoor lighting. For more than 18 months, our team of project and technical managers supervised approximately 30 professionals tasked with developing audiovisual and infrastructure solutions.

Description

The use of theme-oriented programming and an astronomical clock was integral to the lighting control system, making it possible to progressively increase lighting levels in the hotel’s common areas depending on the time of day, for the ultimate in user-friendliness and comfort.

Structured cabling was used to sync audiovisual content throughout the property. This required a total of 3,500+ cables, the installation of network sockets in each guest room and the setup of a telecommunications room

The team also coordinated a series of tasks to achieve the project objectives. They course-corrected along the way to take into account some 300 change notices, which speaks to the immense scope and complexity of the project. As the general technology contractor, XYZ faced a particularly significant challenge in coordinating the various tech-related specialists, focusing on five separate spheres (audiovisual, lighting control, access, monitoring systems and project management), for which the team’s telecom expertise proved invaluable.
