Southern California higher education institution, Biola University, turned to Spinitar to design and build a best-in-class AV solution for the new Lim Center for Science, Technology and Health.
Serving more than 6,000 students, across nine schools, with 150 programs of study, Biola University was in need of further campus development. To accommodate their growing curriculum and student body, the Lim Center for Science, Technology and Health was developed to house programs intended for collaboration.
With new construction comes the need for a well-established audiovisual/technology plan. In the case of the Lim Center, audio visual wasn’t initially considered, resulting in field modifications and space alterations that had to be done. During the initial discovery phase, Spinitar was able to identify areas that needed to be altered in order to fulfill the AV standards Biola had set in place. Those discoveries, unfortunately, came at an extra cost to the university.
Having worked together on past projects, Spinitar was intune with Biola’s AV standards, which led to cost savings, direct lines of communication, and on-site project management for AV. The required field modifications were properly addressed, budgets were met, and communications were inline, causing little to no delays.“Working with Spinitar’s team has been a positive experience. Their professionalism and ability to complete project objectives in a timely manner was beneficial -- especially during the design-build process for the audiovisual technology in the Lim Center for Science, Technology and Health.” — Anthony Valentino, Director, Technical Support & Information Technology, Biola University
By working directly with Spinitar on the AV portion of the project, Biola was able to save approximately $150K in additional fees. Through the implementation of three main technologies, which include, a nursing simulation, a standardized control system and a centralized support system, students, faculty and staff now have access to a standardized AV system they can count on.
