Services: AV, Software | Size: 195,000 sf | Cost: $84 million
Emory University’s 195,000-square-foot Rollins School of Public Health was a multi-phase, multi-facility $84 million renovation and new construction project. The project included a 250-seat lecture hall, 14 classrooms ranging from 25 to 120 seats, a high-finish, multipurpose facility and 23 conference/ breakout spaces. Waveguide designed and programmed all classrooms and lecture spaces with a new campus standard user interface based on the guidebar™ unified control, annotation and monitoring technology. The classrooms also connect to a new master control center, allowing for classroom overflow, course CATV distribution on the campus network and shared use of course capture systems for live streaming or on-demand review. Centralized asset management systems allow the technical staff to monitor, operate and support all AV systems in the facility remotely. Waveguide also designed a problem-based learning (PBL) environment for Emory where new learning pedagogies can be tested in small-group settings. The faciltiy achieved LEED-Silver certification.
