Installer:    Reliance High Tech

The Client:

Port Glasgow featuring Soundfield Classroom Voice Reinforcement

Port Glasgow Community Campus is a new £44m combined schools complex in Inverclyde - an amazing new learning environment shared by Port Glasgow High School, St Stephen's High School and Craigmarloch Additional Support Needs School.

Hosting all three schools within one Campus, both high schools have their own entrances, foyers, classrooms and teaching studios, all of which are linked through a shared social hub.

System Requirements:

To co-ordinate and implement the Mechnical & Electrical System throughout the project, one of Scotland's leading M&E Contractors - Reliance High Tech - were brought on-board, also delivering the specification and installation of campus-wide PA, Soundfield Voice Re-inforcement and Induction Loop Systems as a key part of their project brief.

The Solution:

CIE AV Solutions Public Address Systems

Reliance High Tech engaged the assistance of leading PA / AV specialist distributors CIE AV Solutions to design, specify and supply a fully-integrated, robust audio system which would provide zoned coverage throughout the building.
CIE's specialist, in-house audio system design team provided free on-site / off-site consultation and system design service in order to specify (and later supply) a complete public address and induction loop system, together with 36 Soundfield systems to be installed into each classroom to provide teacher voice re-inforcement for an improved learning environment.

All amplification, audio control and loudspeakers were supplied by CIE AV Solutions, including two bespoke built PA racks built in-house by CIE’s technical services team. The racks also make full use of CIE’s own-brand Clever Little Box LB-8A Digital Audio Store, which has been integrated to provide bells, tones and messages triggered by the LEA’s own class-change system.
