… new facility requires full fit-out

SAE (School of Audio Engineering) was established in Australia in 1976 and is a lead-educator in creative media industries. SAE campuses have been established nationwide and globally. The Sydney campus was recently relocated to Chippendale and as part of the move The P.A. People provided AV support for the new fitout.

The new premises is a refurbished 5-story building and required a total fitout of studios, classrooms, theatre, smaller meeting rooms and offices.

The main install consisted of the cabling infrastructure for all studios, live rooms and teaching spaces including all audio connections such as mic level and line level and speaker ties and video connections such as HDMI, SDI and Fibre ties. The P.A. People team custom built, engraved and terminated panels for each room, which detailed all Neutrik connectors.

The visual components of the system included projection screens situated in the training rooms, while seminar rooms were fitted with LCD screens. A small AMX touch panel was installed in the theatre to control projection and lighting. A lighting patch panel was also installed in their largest live space (the ‘wonder room’) for stage lighting requirements.

SAE supplied and installed their own equipment, so our main priority was to ensure the infrastructure was functional.

The P.A. People partnered with Farindon Constructions to complete the project & worked closely with Design Stage Consultancy.
