Electricity North West Ltd owns one of the fourteen original regulated electricity distribution networks. Electricity North West Ltd currently has 13,127 km of overhead lines, 43,136 km of underground cables, and 33,822 transformers serving over 2.3 million customers in the North West of England, they also operate, maintain, construct and repair these assets.
Due to expansion Electricity North West required to move premises into larger offices, they required a suite of meeting rooms and a split boardroom to be equipped with audio and video capabilities with reception requiring a digital display to ensure up to date information was being displayed for staff and visitors. ITSL Group were selected to provide the AV solution for the new building during the refurbishment, the proposal development was particularly challenging due to the regulated nature of the business.
ITSL Group delivered seven meeting rooms in total utilising the allocated budget biased to where it was needed most. The smaller meeting rooms received straight forward 32” LCD displays with Kramer priority switches to allow simple switching when a laptop input was required over the in-house PC, the interfacing was via custom input plates manufactured by ITSL. The split boardroom was configured to be a dual purpose space, both rooms required their own large format displays and control system but when the room is opened we enabled an intuitive switch so if the user requires video the added option is available for the recessed projector and projector screen. The audio is zoned between the two rooms so when the 2nd room is joined the audio system becomes one single zone from the designated input device.
The reception required a commercial LCD to enable the OneLan signage product to operate effectively, the OneLan digital signage controller is updated by the ENW marketing team and displays up to the minute company information and relevant news.
