AVM equips 15,000 student college23 December 2011
Bournville College, situated in Birmingham in the UK, is a large further education college. In November 2009 the college began a complete rebuild of its Longbridge campus which positions Bournville as a flagship college in the UK.
The new £66 million campus covers 4.2 acres of land, and has a capacity of over 15,000 students.
AVM worked with college staff to understand their vision for the future and design AV systems in line with their requirements.
“With AVM’s guidance and advice, we are confident we have purchased the very best AV equipment,” said Paul Bristow, Assistant Principal for Learner Services at Bournville College. “Teaching and support staff are amazed by the technologies and actively embrace these in the classroom.”
AVM supplied and installed interactive teaching equipment into 137 classrooms across the campus as well as fitting out a cinema room with an HD and 3D projection system.
In the conference centre, AVM provided a large projection screen and audio system with mixing console and full room control. In the music department, AVM installed computer music software, music hardware such as microphones, keyboard controllers and studio recording equipment.
Other equipment AVM provided around the campus included several large LED screens, a 55” interactive touch table and integrated audio systems with facilities such as iPod docking stations and a Blu-ray player.
Last month, AVM also completed an extensive refit of Loughborough University. To read about the extensive range of specialist projection and display systems installed, click here.
