Dated IT and security systems leave residents behind
The St. Tropez Condominium was ahead of its time in 1964, when it was constructed. With a 15th floor pool deck and (then) modern amenities, it was a symbol of the co-op age, and the first co-op in Manhattan. The building underwent a substantial renovation in the 1980s, with appointments that were severely dated by post-millennial standards. Technology and communication suffered with a 1990’s retrofitted data and camera network.
Tech integrated seamlessly with aesthetic renovations
The building approved a $4.5 MM referendum to renovate in 2016. JS Tech contracted for a state-of-the-art HD surveillance network, modern touch-screen computers, and wifi throughout the common spaces. The building would have to remain operational throughout renovations. Taking a phased approach, JS Tech transitioned from analog cameras, to analog cameras on a digital system, and finally to pure digital surveillance cameras with minimal downtime.
JS Tech introduced new computers and surveillance technologies gradually, training staff at every step of the way. Working closely with construction company Murphy Kennedy Group, Architect Palette, and Interior Designer Wilson & Company, JS Tech delivered a functional result integrated with the aesthetics of the project. Residents can now take advantage of enhanced security, communication, and wifi on the three common levels of the building.
