2022 INTEGRATION AWARDS Corporate Campus
APG Technology:
Jabil New Roosevelt
Headquarters
The Clearwater, Fla.-based technology specialist helps
create a modern, environmentally friendly and highly
connected campus. By Dan Ferrisi
The scope was not limited to a standard
structured cabling system or a basic conference
room projection screen; rather, it
involved some of the most advanced, innovative
and complex systems in existence.
To ensure user-friendliness, every touchpanel
looked the same, regardless of the
technology behind each room. Standardization
was a key requirement. The client wanted
every room to feel and operate in the
same way, thus likely minimizing requests for
IT support.
In the boardroom, the videoconferencing cameras don't wake up and start sharing video
until the time is right. This was also implemented in the conference center.
JABIL IS A PROMINENT name in advanced
technology solutions, global manufacturing
and supply-chain management. It has
more than 260,000 employees across 100
locations in 30 countries. Jabil chose St. Petersburg,
Fla., as the location of its new world
headquarters. The vision was to bring together
employees in a modern, environmentally
friendly and highly connected campus. The
building, however, had to have the appeal
and the technology to facilitate collaboration
between teams in Florida and worldwide.
Packed with Amenities
At 175,000 square feet, this four-story
building includes office spaces, conference
rooms, collaboration rooms and customer
engagement spaces. Amenities include a
café, a dedicated IT helpdesk and a state-ofthe-art
fitness center.
Clearwater, Fla.-based APG Technology

was brought onboard by the design team
as a technology consultant for the project.
Ultimately, the firm was selected as the audiovisual
integrator, working in partnership
with Gensler Architects and Skanska USA.
The firm's task was monumental: conceptualizing,
designing, installing and integrating
technologies for a company as large and
diverse as Jabil is.
Jabil wanted state-of-the-art technology,
so it leveraged its existing partnership with
Crestron to provide technological uniformity.
APG Technology worked closely with
Crestron to design every collaboration space.
It selected Crestron Flex series for Microsoft
Teams for all collaboration spaces and
Crestron NVX in conjunction with Crestron
Flex series UC Engines in the boardroom
and conference center to allow the switching
capability necessary to run collaborative
meetings with multiple sources and displays.
How the Relationship Grew
Let's explore how APG Technology and Jabil
came together and, in so doing, ultimately
created such an impressive environment.
Jabil contacted APG Technology at the end
of 2017 to design the technology systems
for its new, 40,000-square-foot Innovation
Center, a building dedicated to research
and development. Scott Renner headed
up the design for all technology systems,
including structured cabling, security and
audiovisual technology. Jabil signed the
contract in February 2018.
After observing APG Technology's
diligence in tackling the Innovation Center,
Jabil contacted the company again about
continuing the design for its new headquarters.
The finished product is a culmination of
years of effort, and it represents APG's passion
for excellence. The company's scope
was not limited to a standard structured
cabling system or a basic conference room
projection screen; rather, it involved some of
the most advanced, innovative and complex
systems in the industry.
APG Technology's partnership with Jabil
continues even today, after the culmination
of the headquarters building. The company,
in fact, has been selected to complete the
