Washington, D.C.
January 1st 2007

AP relocated its Washington, D.C. newsroom operations and administrative groups, to house its video, radio and photography operations in a single space for the first time. The design of the 50,000-square-foot newsroom, the largest in the global AP organization, required coordination of a raised-flooring system, roof-top satellite layouts, redundant generators and an extensive UPS system. Other facilities in the clean, modern offices include a 100+ rack network operations center, convergence desk, news desk, camera studio, green room and multiple audio recording booths.
