The University of Southampton, on the south coast of England, has an enrolment of up to 25,000 students and is ranked in the top 20 of UK universities. The university received planning permission to develop a new teaching and learning centre on its Highfield Campus. The Centenary Building has been named ‘100’ in celebration of 100 years of teaching at Highfield Campus and boasts an impressive range of facilities across 8 floors.

This project was tendered by the main contractor BAM construction. The brief was to provide a state-of-the-art teaching and learning centre to improve the student experience and help ensure the University of Southampton maintains is position as one of the top 100 universities globally (QS World University Rankings 2019).

The consultant specified the project required the latest audio and visual solutions for a number of specific AV spaces including two lecture theatres, a 250 seat main lecture theatre and 100 seat Harvard lecture theatre, nine seminar rooms, two flat floor spaces, a computer based training room, MBA learning and common spaces with five additional meeting spaces and 9 group study pods all providing a variety of options for teaching, learning and study away from the main campus library. 

"proAV undertook a comprehensive audio-visual installation in this new learning and teaching building at the university of Southampton. This included provision for collaborative teaching spaces and a computer workstation room. A Harvard style lecture theatre was equipped to a higher level of provision than standard teaching rooms. proAV worked in a collaborative manner with the university and resolved technical issues that arose for the comprehensive array of audio visual integration that was delivered.
