Petrobras offices designed.

Petrobras offices designed

Petrobras America, Inc., the U.S. arm of Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras), one of the largest producers of petroleum in South America, has just moved into new offices at 1330 Avenue of the Americas, in New York City which were designed by Ted Moudis Associates (TMA), an architectural and interior design firm.

The move to the newly renovated ITT Building from 30 Rockefeller Plaza was taken to minimize expense for the company. Planning by TMA allowed a reduction in total square footage, without compromising accommodations for all current employees and the trading room as well as providing ample expansion space. Energy efficient lighting utilized throughout the project is expected to reduce the company's electrical usage.

Given the international character of the company, the telecommunications system which maintains uninterrupted contact with the headquarters in Brazil and the world financial markets is the heartbeat of the firm. Working closely with a communications consultant, TMA coordinated the many communications services that were required during renovation, assuring that they were properly designed and installed. These systems were also designed to minimize expense by accommodating future changes through reprogramming rather than rewiring.
