G&T led the successful completion of the NBCUniversal Telemundo global headquarters in Miami, FL, where it provided full project management and cost management services on this $250+ million project, from 2015 into 2018.
The NBCUniversal Telemundo Global Headquarters is a free-standing, three story, 476,000 square foot facility, composed of tilt-up concrete panels and steel framed construction. The facility contains 15 broadcast studios equipped with state-of-the-art production and editing technology, office space for over 1300 employees, cafeteria and other amenities. The 21-acre greenfield site holds parking for more than 1,100 vehicles, along with a separate free-standing 50,000 square foot satellite antenna yard. The building was designed with all the technological and digital capabilities required to allow for optimal connectivity and advanced multi-platform production.
One of its most unique and impressive attributes is the centrally located production workspace—which at over 25,000 square feet and over 30 feet in double-height open space—is the largest single open newsroom in the entire USA within an active broadcast facility. Telemundo Center sets the new standard for Hispanic media as the only next-generation, multimedia production facility with news, sports, entertainment, studios, international and digital all under one roof.
Among the guiding principle for the new headquarters’ conceptual design was the adoption of advanced sustainability standards. Strategically-placed skylights allow for natural light throughout the building. To further promote energy savings, all lighting in the facility is 100% LED and individually controlled by a building automation system. Ten electric car charging stations were also installed, along with bicycle racks and locker room facilities for employees who commute by bicycle.
Through modern workspaces and activity-based work stations, Telemundo Center’s open plan design and cutting-edge technology is specifically designed to spark innovation, generate powerful experiences, and foster the kind of creative energy and cross-business ideation and collaboration essential to the workplace of the future in a world-class media operation.
