CRS install eighteen control room consoles and two video walls for a utilities provider in Western Australia.
Before the installation begun, operators were invited to CRS’s offices to give feedback on the new control room layout in a CADwalk Visualisation Workshop. Here the operators and management were able to test different layouts in full 1:1 scale and make sure they were 100% happy with the design, which meant the installation could be completed in absolute confidence without the need for expensive change requests and delays. CRS invites all clients to experience their room in CADwalk to validate the design and get it right the first time.
CRS supplied and installed eighteen premium control room consoles, based on the Response range from Evans Consoles. Evans have used CRS exclusively as its local representative, installation and maintenance partner in Australia since 2009 as we share very similar goals and ideals when it comes to high quality, long lasting products and customer satisfaction.
With a tough modular steel frame, the Response console is designed for the most demanding 24/7 critical environments. Durable High Pressure Laminates (HPL) work surfaces and paneling are built to withstand the even the most intense day to day rigors, giving the console an estimated service life of 20+ years.
CRS organised for the consoles to be air freighted for immediate installation. There were many pressures including the complexities of working on site with other trades in a precious time slot. The control room was being installed on a floor that was high up the building, while the whole floor was being fully fitted out. However CRS’s highly experienced and lean installation team had everything installed on time and on budget. CRS will supply the ongoing maintenance and support of the consoles.
CRS installed a fourteen screen video wall and a six screen video wall. The latest 24/7 narrow bezel screens were supplied and installed, along with a screen mounting system, Eyevis video wall controller and the Eyevis video wall controller software, allowing multiple users to drag and drop content to the video walls. CRS also installed an Extron touch panel display as the primary user interface for the system.
CRS also fitted out an emergency meeting room as part of the control room installation.
