In late 1999, The P.A. People won a competitive bid process for the provision of audio visual facilities for a suite of training and board rooms for BOC Gases as part of a relocation and consolidation to new purpose built offices in North Ryde in Sydney’s north.
The process involved the assessment of the existing rooms and equipment, and the design of new facilities that would meet a stringent design brief within a very tight budget. The new building includes seven separate rooms, with facilities that range from simple whiteboards for group breakout and discussion, a comprehensive training room, through to two fully equipped video conference suites, and two boardrooms with AMX control and touch screens.
A feature of the main training room is its corner location in the building. This room has two adjacent operable walls that allow the expansion of the room in one or two directions to facilitate training sessions and meetings of varying sizes. The use of two projectors and screens in concert with the AMX control system allows the control of all room facilities in each of the three spaces seamlessly (including lights and blinds) as the room configuration is changed.
