Bradley Hayden-Clark Alumni Center
About This Project
Educational Facility Audiovisual & Emergency System Installation
The new Hayden-Clark Alumni Center was constructed on Bradley University’s campus adjoining one of its most historic buildings, Bradley Hall. The Alumni Center is an approximately 35,000 SF building that shares much of the same exterior styling as Bradley Hall. Inside there are many banquet and conference-style gathering areas. In addition, there is a historic museum of distinguished Alumni displaying their achievements with Interactive video kiosks.
Fire Alarm, Mass Notification, and Area of Refuge Rescue Assistance System
The emergency system installed here is part of the overall Edwards EST3-60 Fire Alarm / Mass Notification System throughout the campus. We are utilizing an existing fiber optic backbone to communicate via IP switches and VOIP for all emergency communications. It has Fireworks Graphical User Display (GUI), EST3 with voice, Signature Series, and Genesis Signals. It has speakers throughout the campus to direct students and staff during an emergency such as fire alarm, severe weather, intruder threat, and hazardous disaster.
The Area of Rescue Assistance System installed here is a Cornell 4200 Series. This emergency communication system allows occupants with special needs to notify emergency personnel via audible and visual notification. Once answered, the occupant can communicate directly with the emergency personnel notifying the need for assistance in evacuation.
Audio/Video – A/V infrastructure
The Bradley Hayden-Clark Alumni Center features a building-wide AV infrastructure installed by Thompson Electronics Company. We installed conference room AV systems, a facility-wide paging system, Ballroom AV with room combining, as well as outdoor speaker systems.
