Goldsmiths University of London Upgrade Their Lecture Theatres
Goldsmiths University of London is a public research university specialising in the arts, design, humanities and social sciences with 8,000 students. The University’s teaching quality has consistently won the highest ratings. In 2014 the Research Excellence Framework rated the university in the UK’s top 25 Universities for the quality of their research.
There was a standardisation of 6 area types including large performance spaces, teaching spaces, seminar rooms, meeting rooms and mobile solutions. The project was originally to be undertaken over 30 months on a room by room basis to minimise disruption to teaching and learning.
Upon award and commencement of the project, a phased roll out plan was formulated. Initial work began in February 2016. One of the main aims of this roll out was to future proof Goldsmith’s solution and ensure they were offering the best learning environment for their students.To meet the high-end needs of their performance spaces the Sony FHZ-700 was selected which combined the latest laser technology as well as offering a 7000 lumen WUXGA specification. Goldsmiths chose these units as they are virtually maintenance free and offer a low running cost. In addition, CDEC offered a five-year hardware and installation warranty giving total peace of mind to the University.
