After a busy Christmas period, but with plenty of time for Turkey sarnies between installs and hires, we've kicked off the New Year with some fantastic projects. Here's what January 2016 had in store:

Woodhorn Museum – Winding House Exhibition
Creative AV Installation

AV Works provided technical installation services for the Woodhorn Museum Winding House No.2 Exhibition Project, on behalf of Newcastle-based creative technology firm LamasaTech.

The exhibition was brought to life with Aim Biffa funding, and sought to engage and educate visitors on the history of the last working Winding House in Northumberland – used by coal miners at Woodhorn Colliery before it's closure and redevelopment as a Museum. The use of interactive, interpretive content in the original building space created an accessible, immersive experience for visitors.

We were commissioned to undertake a range of Audio Visual & Electrical works in the original Winding House - a National Scheduled Monument building - including:

  • Installation of 3 x projectors with bespoke mounts

  • Installation of discreet loudspeaker system

  • Installation of hearing loop system

  • Installation of 13A power to equipment

  • Installation of control rack & PC system

  • Installation of lighting control system

  • Installation of bespoke

  • Installation of all cabling & containment

  • Testing & configuration with ongoing technical support

Projection Systems were a running theme for January, with further installations in the North East:

 

  • Projection & audio system installation for immersive room; Marquisway Centre, Gateshead
     

  • Supply & installation of Main Hall projection system; Gibside School, Whickham
     

  • Supply & installation of projection & audio system; Birtley Community Church, Gateshead
     


 

In education, we supplied and installed a number of professional audio systems, including Classroom Speech Refinforcement Systems at Gateshead Talmundical College, and PA equipment at Ateres School, Felling.

 

That's all for now, but we'll be back with more project updates next month. In the meantime, if you'd like to speak with us regarding a project of your own, please get in touch.
