The University of Oxford is a globally renowned institution which has been visited by people from all walks of life and all parts of the world for nine centuries. Students from more than a hundred and forty countries and territories make up a student population of over twenty thousand.
With its distinctive college and tutorial system and outstanding research achievement the University of Oxford is a leader in many fields. The University has invested heavily in the refurbishment of its Teaching Space and in a new building for the Earth Sciences Department, appointing TMD, an independent Chartered Building Surveying and Project Management practice, as its Consultants. TMD selected Smartcomm to consult with the individual Faculty Departments to gain an understanding of the individual user requirements and undertake a detailed survey of the designated OUED (Oxford University Estates Directorate) buildings during the Summer break in August.
Smartcomm were then required to create a comprehensive report with the associated recommendations for each individual department to enhance the teaching space experience and bring the areas up to a modern OUED Teaching Space standard.
Smartcomm provided audio visual services and teaching aids in two seminar rooms and three teaching laboratories, presentation and video conferencing facilities for the Department’s conference room and video displays capable of delivering network delivered content in the atrium reception area.
