The Brief

Oldham MBC required the refurbishment to the Ground Floor of the Civic Centre. To provide a new Reception Area along with Meeting and Conference facilities to be used by the council and other local bodies. The successful company would work with the main contractor to design, supply and install digital signage, Audio Visual presentation systems and a discussion and voting system.

Our Approach

Reception Area

We designed and installed 2 Digital Signage displays for room booking and Oldham MBC community news and events.
We installed the reception counter induction loop for the hard of hearing, to comply with the DDA legislation.

Crompton Suite & Lees Suite – Large Conference & Committee rooms

We designed, built and installed lecterns with facilities for multi-media presentations from laptops, room computer, video sources with wireless control of computers from anywhere in the room. We installed a full push button AMX lectern control system with ECO friendly system shut down and a separate PA system with fixed lectern microphone and wireless microphones.
The presentation system was a Hitachi Interactive LCD screens for annotating on-screen displays and Television display facilities and large media wall display screen.
we installed a Bosch DCN wireless discussion system integrated with an infra-red hard of hearing support system again to comply with DDA legislation.

Shaw Room – Smaller Meeting Room

In the smaller meeting room we installed a compact integrated AV presentation system with the facility for laptop, room computer and video presentations with wireless control of computers from anywhere in the room. On the wall we installed a 77″ Hitachi Interactive Whiteboard and presentation screen and again integrated an infra-red hard of hearing support to comply with DDA legislation.

The Result

The addition of state of the art integrated AV systems means that the investment in the new meeting spaces will service the comunity well for years to come.

The meeting rooms have proved very flexible and are used daily by various groups in Oldham.
