Leeds University Business School wanted to create a world-class specialist space that would meet the needs of all students in the Esther Simpson Building. This included equipping teaching and learning environments with state-of-the-art technology.
Tamsin Barrow, Facilities Manager, in discussing the Esther Simpson building of Leeds University, stated, “We are a Business School, so we need to be at the forefront of teaching and research. This building was designed a few years ago and we needed to make sure the technology would still be relevant by the time it was built.”
To enhance teacher and student experiences, the school wanted to expand on collaborative spaces with the new Esther Simpson building – the ‘heart’ of the Business School. Technology innovation would provide opportunities for the University to diversify how it delivers content through in-person instruction and hybrid learning programs, as well as serve as a flagship for events, highlighting the unique student opportunities at Leeds and its specialized teaching facilities.
Universal AV was contracted as consultants to identify the audio-visual solutions to be implemented which included state-of-the-art UX Pro displays by Clevertouch® Technologies. The UX Pro is a powerful and feature-rich display – Super Glide technology, 45W max power sound, Cloud drive sync capabilities, among others - that truly transforms any space for increased and improved interactivity and collaboration.
