Top marks for Queen Elizabeth High School

Vaughan Sound was recently invited to design and specify suitable lighting, sound and audio-visual equipment for the newly-built Queen Elizabeth High School in Carmarthen, South Wales.

Working with electrical contractor Whitehead Building Services, under main contractor Carillion, the learning institution for 11 to 19 year olds required products for its performance room, assembly hall and drama studio.

To accommodate a wide range of events and activities, the performance space was supplied with a Trilite truss, complete with audio speaker, dimmer and hot power circuits, and DMX data lines, to offer easy movement of production kit around the bespoke structure.

Industry-standard sound and mixing equipment, intuitive to use Sanyo projection systems, cost-effective lighting fixtures and induction loops were appointed to both the performance and assembly halls, with the latter also receiving facilities panels to maximise connectivity.

The school’s drama studio benefitted from a flexible sound and lighting rig, comprising of a 20 circuit internally wired lighting grid and an RCF audio system.

Additionally, Vaughan Sound created a mics-and-stands package, consisting of Shure, Sennheiser and Audio-Technica products, for use within all three spaces.
