Control room furniture for brand new CCTV hub at Blackburn with Darwen Council

10 Apr 2017

In a bid to crack down on crime across East Lancashire, a new CCTV hub has been created at King George’s Hall, Blackburn. As part of the 24 hour monitoring station which came into operation in February 2017, Thinking Space were tasked with the provision of control room furniture which included 2 x two operator control room consoles, 2 x single operator control room consoles and an eleven metre spanning Evolution Media Wall with 33 large screens, the largest of its kind at that time.

Thinking Space were awarded the contract to provide control room furniture for the brand new CCTV hub at Blackburn with Darwen Council. Accommodating four operators and two supervisors, the cool blues and greys for the interior for the room were matched by Thinking Space with their ergonomic furniture, to create a calm and peaceful environment for this 24/7 monitoring station.  Of particular interest in this project was the 11 metre spanning Evolution media wall manufactured and installed by Thinking Space. Perfect alignment was key in ensuring the correct sight lines for operators and an aesthetically pleasing finish for the 33 large flat screens, mounted in a configuration of three rows of eleven. Thinking Space used laser positioning technology to achieve an accurate solution.

The hub was officially opened in March 2017 with Thinking Space invited to the proceedings. Based in King George’s Hall, Blackburn, the new control room monitors over 240 cameras across East Lancashire in a bid to cut crime and make cost savings. Opening the new facility, which had been in operation since the previous month, Assistant Chief Constable Mark Bates and Council leader Mohammed Khan from Blackburn with Darwin Council led the proceedings, hailing the complete project as a resounding success.

Peter Wareing, CCTV Services Manager for Blackburn with Darwen Council explained why communications between all parties ensured it’s success. “Thinking Space worked closely with both myself and our CCTV installers from day one, providing me with 2D and 3D images of the finished product, allowing me to better convince Partners of the finished article. As the project progressed, Thinking Space were in regular contact with me to ensure that I was receiving exactly what I needed” explained Peter. “The build and install went smoothly, something a project manager looks forward to! The finished article really looks the part and provided that wow factor, with sight lines all taken account of and Operators able to provide an excellent service in comfort.”
