We're coming towards the end of the summer break, and many of the rooms are looking much better than they originally were.
Some of the biggest changes have been in 1E, 4E and in 3WN.
The extent of the work will be published in a guide coming soon, but as a preview... here's a view of 3WN2.1:
This summer, we are rebuilding many of the teaching spaces.
Full rebuilds (Furniture, Decoration, Equipment):
- 2E (but not 3.1)
- 4E (not 3.38)
Equipment refresh & Decoration:
1E3.6, 4E2.56 and 4E3.5 will become twin projector rooms - so you can show 2 sources side-by-side.
3WN2.1 will be fitted with camera tracking (similar to University Hall).
These rooms are being upgraded to the latest AV Specification. They are also being fully rewired to give the latest standard of cabling.
From the start of the new academic year, all of these rooms will be equipped with a full set of digital interfaces, so any form of laptop can be plugged in.
The rooms will have a full lecture capture interface, so that anything the students see on the projection screens or displays will be captured.
An addition to that, the rooms are also getting Apple and Miracast display sharing devices - so you will be able to present from a tablet or latest model laptop wirelessly.
Please contact us if you would like to know any more details.
Now that the rebuild process in 8W is complete, we would like to invite everyone to come and visit the rooms to see the extent of the refurbishment, and look over the new technology.
The visits will be held on:
Friday 26 June
10:00 to 12:00
14:00 to 16:00
If you would like to come along and see the result of the first year of the refurbishment programme, please do!
The 8W refurbishment continues at some pace. We should be having Level 2 rooms handed back to us late on Friday evening.
There are some changes in the rooms:
All the rooms will be fully HD and Widescreen.
All the rooms will have new controllers, lecterns, visualisers, and screens.
There has also been an upgrade to all of the wiring infrastructure in the rooms - so we should be much better placed for future operations.
The fixed seating is returning to the lecture theatres today (new).
The summer refurbishment project being undertaken on 8W GTA rooms is well underway.
Most of the rooms have been stripped out, and are underway with first-fix for the AV equipment, and also with the decoration.
The refurbishment will replace many of the rooms very similarly to their previous layout. However, some of the rooms will be a little different to before. More to come later.
A preview of the work being undertaken at the moment is below:
8W1.1 - Strip Out
8W2.1 - Strip Out
More to come over the coming days!
