Connectrac Corporate Solutions: Cincinnati Children's Hospital

09/22/2016 |

CHALLENGE

At around 445,000 square feet, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital’s new Research Tower created a variety of A/V Meeting Rooms able to seat and accommodate as many as 30 people. Each meeting room moved away from the standard projector set-up by using flat-panel, wall-mounted displays, along with conference phones and personalized Crestron Flip-Tops placed on top of every conference tables. The Crestron Flip-Tops bring controls for lighting and video inputs to a touch screen.

Each meeting room would require every kind of connectivity—A/V, Telecomm, Power and Data. For a project of such a large scale, the hospital wanted a quality product that could be matched with an affordable price.

“To core drill everywhere is simply too much,” said Michael Rose, Interactive Services at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. “We had no problem with Connectrac. It solves a lot of problems.”

SOLUTION

After being selected by their architect firm, the hospital made an order for Connectrac In-Carpet wireways to be installed in their A/V Meeting Rooms. Having not seen the product before, Rose was a little skeptical when he thought about other on-floor type raceways.

“I wasn’t too enthusiastic at first,” Rose recalled. “I’m usually hesitant about using any type of surface solution.”

What alleviated his concerns was simply seeing Connectrac being put into action. The install team had no problems laying the track down, putting In-Carpet wireways in over 40 A/V Meeting Rooms. The wireway was laid seamlessly from the wall underneath the flat-panel display to underneath the conference table, providing cable management for the Crestron Flip-Top.
