Luxury control for Pentagon City residential building
The fully-integrated Total Control commercial automation system was impeccably designed and installed by URC master systems integrator John Carroll of Nards Entertainment.
“With 699 private residences and host of amenities, The Bartlett boasts fifteen Total Control in-wall touchscreen controllers with custom building branding, over 150 speakers, an eight-panel video wall and seven 42-space racks,” said Carroll.
The robust Total Control system provides distributed audio and video throughout the property.
The fully-automated system eases day-to-day operations for The Bartlett staff, making it convenient and automatic for them. The system leaves the day-to-day changes such as music and TV content sourcing to the people who use it most – the residents.
“Total Control is perfectly suited for this job, providing extensive value and utility to the property management and tenants,” said Carroll. “The system extends to the outdoor rooftop pool, overlooking all of Washington DC’s most famous sites such as The White House, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and Jefferson Memorial – as far as the National Cathedral.”
The system provides complete automation and control of the reception area, spa-quality fitness center, hospitality spaces, entertainment room, co-working style work bar and meeting rooms.
The Bartlett truly offers residents “Life on a whole new scale” including a 24/7 concierge, curated events, mobile car detailing and portable shopping carts – plus a wide range of pet-friendly services such as the S’Paw Pet Salon, Bark Bar Treat Station and Yappy Hours.
“Nowhere else will you find a building that has technology so integrated to its core,” said Carroll. “Nards is honored to work on such prestigious and complex commercial projects such as The Bartlett.”
