One of proAV's recent public sector projects made the shortlist of the AJ Architecture Awards 2019.
Hounslow Council HQ, designed by Sheppard Robson reached the final shortlist in the workplace over 10,000 sqm and over category.
As part of the new-build development, proAV was commissioned directly by the London Borough of Hounslow to create a stimulating, smart working environment by implementing a building-wide integrated audio visual solution. The objective was to adopt new, more agile ways of working and multiple technology workshops and proof of concepts were held with Hounslow’s workforce to ensure user adoption progressed appropriately in readiness for the move.
As with any substantial new-build programme, the key challenge for proAV’s project teams was to coordinate seamlessly with the main contractor’s various on-site trades and their operations to ensure the client’s timescales were met. The entire project to relocate Hounslow’s workforce was carried out in a phased, floor-by-floor move, although fundamental to the success of proAV’s AV commission was the sound working relationship enjoyed with both Bouygues and the Council’s IT and Project Management team.
