As part of a sophisticated operation within the brand new modular building, GVAV undertook a full AV fit-out over two floors between December 2022 and January 2023. The installation, which was defined by problem solving and technical solutions, included two large computer labs and a large phased array induction loop.
Despite a delay to the project starting, the modular construction meant that the building progressed rapidly and GVAV responded with our usual flexibility, amended schedules to suit and completed the project to the new deadline delivering a collaborative AV solution the University could be rightly proud of.
Additionally, due to the ongoing global supply chain issues faced by so many there were several logistics/hardware availability challenges which we were able to adapt to and address for the customer. While this made it difficult to obtain certain equipment required for this fit-out, much of this was offset by meticulous planning and advanced procurement by GVAV’s procurement and project teams.
For example, when backordered control processors were unavailable, virtual control (Crestron VC-4) was added as a substitute. Similarly NVX units were originally planned for this project. However, a pragmatic approach had to be taken again due to global supply constraints and therefore the system was re-designed around a BluStream AVoIP solution as an alternative technology.
This ensured that the project could proceed without any delays and that the AV system could be installed as per the customer's requirements.
