Strategic Connections recently completed the sizeable Audio-Visual contract for Wake Forest University’s new Farrell Hall, the new home for WFU’s School of Business.
The 128,000 square-foot Farrell Hall, designed to change the nature of business education, features sophisticated technology and innovative design to create an environment where faculty-student engagement can thrive. Built around a “living-room” concept that brings faculty and students together in new ways, the building was designed to include flexible classrooms and collaborative spaces, allowing both graduate and undergraduate students the opportunity to learn intimately and intuitively within a shared space. Classrooms are equipped with multiple state-of-the-art projectors and display screens which allow students easy view from any seat.
The three-story building includes a 400-seat auditorium, 18 hi-tech classrooms, 11 Video Conferencing Systems, 53 Collaboration rooms, a central 8,200 square-foot Founders Living Room, and a Colloquium with a 4 x 4 Video Wall, covering 100 square feet . The auditorium features a 247-inch projector screen and sound system boasting 11 speakers at 5200 watts total.
