Project Description: 

When Univision decided to consolidate its production and broadcast operations, it chose to renovate and expand an existing building in suburban Miami, Florida. The Austin Company designed, engineered and constructed the renovation and expansion. Austin also provided interior design services and assisted with the building’s technical design.

Interior renovation of the existing 50,000 SF structure resulted in office space for the majority of the network’s departments: news, sports, special events, merchandising, communications, special projects, talent and entertainment, creative services, promotions, traffic and engineering.

An 88,000 SF expansion to the office area was created to accommodate additional offices, studios, production facilities and storage. Provisions for a future studio were made within the storage area. In the production area, three studios are sealed against sound intrusion by a special acoustical wall and vault sound-doors.

Designed for optimum efficiency, control rooms are configured so that equipment is directly accessible to production personnel. The equipment includes: video switchers, audio mixers, digital processors, and banks of keyboards, mixers and monitors. In addition, a raised floor in the technical center afforded cabling flexibility and a complete fire protection and alarm system was installed.

Located on 8.5 acres in a picturesque resort area, the state-of-the-art network operations center also houses Univision’s Miami television station, WLTV-Channel 23.
