The iconic building achieved international acclaim by being runner-up to the Beijing Olympic Swimming Pool in the prestigious LEAF Awards for the Best Public Building Design of the Year. The Cube’s theatre is also the only one in the UK to gain a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’.
proAV was appointed to deliver a distinctive solution comprising world class audio visual technologies and stylish equipment that compliment the iconic architecture and interior design scheme of the Corby Cube and to address the functional demands of a central council administration.
This integrated suite of sophisticated AV equipment includes conferencing, HD display, multimedia presentation, delegate and induction loop audio and intuitive control systems. All were installed throughout the council chamber and meeting rooms to offer discreet, but effective video and audio support to the council’s sessions, which are attended by the public as well as the private meetings that are held by council staff.
The contemporary layout and interior styling presented interesting challenges for proAV’s design team; high ceilings, hardwood panel features and unusual natural and overhead lighting scheme required a considered approach that would satisfy both acoustic and spatial features.
The result is an outstanding range of world class technologies and equipment that are providing Corby Borough Council and its public with a more professional, interactive meeting experience for all who visit and use the chamber and meeting facilities.
