Loughborough University is one of the UK’s leading universities and has been voted the UK’s best student experience for five years running. To maintain this excellent reputation, it must ensure that the teaching and learning environments are innovative, modern and engaging for 21st century students. AVM was invited to work with the university to fulfil its on-going vision for state-of-the-art teaching facilities and ensure the audio visual capabilities are of the highest quality.
AVM equipped several areas of the university encompassing a wide range of specialist projection and display systems, completing a total rebuild of two lecture theatres with high definition presentation facilities which included PA systems, dual projection, lecture recording systems, lecterns and one-touch control systems for flexible, easy-to-use projector and room control.
Other parts of the project included three meeting rooms in the facilities management building, the Rutland Building, which serves as the staff HQ, fitted with dual projection, ceiling speakers and an induction loop system, as well as digital signage in the reception area.
“AVM has vast experience of working in a university environment and this is reflected in their work at Loughborough,” said Aaron Turlington-Smith, AV supervisor at Loughborough University. “They were able to design integrated AV systems of the highest quality, whilst offering very competitive pricing. The AVM team is knowledgeable and efficient, meaning I could carry on with my day-to-day job with minimal disturbances; whilst confident the project was being carried out to the highest standard. The new solutions have been very well received by staff and have added another dimension to our daily practices, improving the teaching and learning environment.”
