EQUANS worked closely with Victoria University to deliver the audio-visual systems throughout the educational high rise. Meeting rooms, open area presentations, council rooms, teaching and learning rooms, simulation labs, spa, salon and hairdressing rooms and staff areas deployed Crestron video conference equipment as specified by the client.
Utilising Crestron allowed EQUANS to deliver Fusion server integration, a smart system to communicate all communication and data requests and their status to the building manager in real time. This enables live updates on system performance, allowing the client and EQUANS to easily trouble shoot, remotely access the information and monitor equipment energy usage and adjust accordingly. In addition, the rollout of the unified Crestron video conferencing systems throughout the buildings provides a premium user experience for educators and students, ensuring they have a familiar user experience throughout the whole building.
EQUANS forecasted COVID-19-related delays, mainly due to site restrictions and industry- wide equipment shortages. To increase efficiency of the build onsite, much of the work was done offsite. This included scheduling equipment prior to build to ensure availability, pre-commissioning field equipment, offsite system recommissioning including rack builds. Not only enabled these measures the project to be on time, but also within budget. Zero defects were found during the witness test after installation onsite, allowing EQUANS to confidently hand over the systems to Victoria University.
