GE Healthcare engaged Vega Europe to provide professional services, design and implementation of audio visual, video conferencing, digital signage and IPTV solutions for their newly refurbished offices, based in Amersham and Buckinghamshire. The project also required the integration and relocation of an existing immersive telepresence suite.
Each meeting room was installed with Skype for Room systems, Samsung displays and Barco wireless presentation devices, as well as room booking panels outside each room. A smaller set-up was installed in multiple huddle rooms.
Vega were also engaged to provide acoustic advice and treatments.
The industrial-looking ceilings in the open areas of the building came with acoustic issues due to the base build ceiling being concrete (which is 99% reflective of sound). Vega advised, supplied and installed absorbent fabric ceiling panels using plain grey fabrics to create better acoustics whilst still offering the aesthetics of an industrial look.
Colourful acoustic wall panels were used to reduce reverberation and enhance the aesthetics within each meeting room. Due to a large number of hard surfaces (marble floors/glass partitions), the reception panels were installed to add the WOW factor whilst still offering a class A acoustic rating.
