With its origins in the audio-visual industry, Torpedo Factory Group is re-engineering its business as a Smart Building Infrastructure company. By helping create valuable data about the ways people interact with commercial buildings, it will help its clients make those buildings more sustainable and more enjoyable for everyone to use. Their bold vision starts with upgrading their own headquarters as part of the drive to net zero, and continues with the development of novel proprietary technology. This will use their in-house audio expertise to deliver data to improve the effectiveness of meetings.
