Meridian High School - Athletic Field PA

Macon, Illinois

 

As part of a phased construction effort, GHR provided designs and specified the installation of several, independent athletic field PA systems.  For several of the smaller fields (softball, soccer) a simple, portable system was designed such that it could be used for multiple fields at different times. For the football field, however, a more powerful, stationary system was designed.  All systems included auxiliary inputs, means to play CD's, microphones and assisted listening components. At each filed, permanent speakers were installed on  field lighting poles with permanent wiring routed back to input panels.

Geneseo High School - Technology Upgrades

Geneseo, Illinois

 

As part of a multi-million dollar addition and renovation to this existing high school building, GHR performed planning, design and construction administration services for various technology upgrades.  With the assistance of the school district's technology director, GHR planned out a revised IDF layout to facilitate the phased construction of this project.  Furthermore, all new CAT6 cable was installed to each workstation and to each owner furnished wireless access point.  GHR provided designs for both the network's fiber optic backbone and grounding backbone.  Also throughout the building, GHR designed and specified a new paging/PA system that not only served the new portions of the facility, but also tied into the existing paging system components.  In addition to all of these upgrades, GHR designed a simple, yet powerful, PA system for the school's new state-of-the-art football field.
