TRANSFORMING STANFORD UNIVERSITY'S BIOENGINEERING AND CHEMICAL ENGINEERING BUILDING
Stanford University, a prestigious institution known for its cutting-edge research and academic excellence, sought to enhance its bioengineering and chemical engineering building with state-of-the-art audiovisual systems.
AVDG was enlisted by Stanford University to conceptualize and implement advanced audiovisual solutions within their expansive 206,000-square-foot bioengineering and chemical engineering building. This facility, the largest and fourth structure on the university's science & engineering campus, serves as a hub for interdisciplinary collaboration among various university departments.
A centerpiece of the project, the technology-enhanced classroom was meticulously designed to facilitate multimedia presentations. It features tiered seating for optimal visibility, multiple floor boxes for seamless laptop connectivity, a custom lectern equipped with a confidence monitor, Loop for assistive listening, and a dual projector and screens setup.
CUSTOM CONTROL SYSTEMS
The presentation system is seamlessly orchestrated through a Crestron control panel, which was meticulously programmed with a custom interface by AVDG's in-house team of skilled programmers.
The revitalized infrastructure of the center was purposefully designed to foster collaboration between the Department of Chemical Engineering and the Department of Bioengineering. Meeting spaces, kitchens, stairways, and amenities were strategically centralized to promote interaction and teamwork. Through the integration of AVDG's audiovisual solutions, students from both departments are empowered to collaborate on groundbreaking research in vital fields such as human health, environmental sustainability, and energy.
The center was constructed in adherence to stringent sustainability standards, boasting a significantly reduced environmental footprint. It consumes only half the power and a mere tenth of the water compared to a conventional structure of similar size. AVDG's technology seamlessly aligns with the building's energy-saving features, contributing to an eco-conscious and technologically advanced academic environment.
