La IAA eligió a Thinking Space para que diseñe e instale las consolas de los controladores aéreos de nuestra nueva Torre de Control de Tráfico Aéreo en el Aeropuerto de Dublín debido al prestigio mundial del que goza Thinking Space y a su gran experiencia en el campo.
Necesitábamos una infraestructura que fuese no solo de última generación si no que los controladores tuviesen además las mejores instalaciones posibles para apoyarles en su tarea de gestionar el tráfico en un aeropuerto internacional tan concurrido como el nuestro, en especial porque se estaba construyendo una nueva pista paralela para dar solución a la creciente demanda para el tráfico aéreo. El requisito fue que los controladores pudiesen ver todas las áreas de maniobras de la pista paralela y de toda la infraestructura existente. Además, los controladores debían poder ver el espacio aéreo en los alrededores de las pistas y del aeropuerto en general.
Desde el principio, Thinking Space hizo suyos todos nuestros requisitos y rápidamente comprendieron los conceptos operativos que mueven nuestro negocio.
Hubo muchas sesiones de consulta entre Thinking Space y nuestros expertos en operaciones y técnicos, y de esta interacción nació el mobiliario prototipo que se construyó. Todo fue evaluado en conjunto con los equipos en ambas organizaciones, y las modificaciones propuestas se ejecutaron de inmediato.
Fue muy sencillo trabajar junto con Thinking Space; fueron muy receptivos y flexibles para con nuestras necesidades.
El resultado final fue que ahora contamos con mobiliario de calidad, que fue entregado e instalado cumpliendo con nuestras especificaciones, y por lo tanto, consideraríamos favorablemente contar con los servicios de Thinking Space en futuros proyectos.
Desde el primer contacto con Thinking Space, el equipo me pareció proactivo y apoyaron el proyecto. No solo aceptaron nuestros requisitos, sino que hicieron preguntas fundamentales que guiaron al equipo del proyecto durante el proceso del diseño de las mesas y la orientación de la sala, y proporcionaron diversas alternativas.
Un proyecto como este requería de una estrecha relación laboral, no solo con el equipo de SLSNSW sino con el gerente del proyecto/constructor y con los contratistas de los servicios audiovisuales y de informática. Thinking Space fue consciente de nuestros límites presupuestarios y nuestras restricciones de tiempo, y cumplieron con ambas.
Ahora que el Centro ha estado en funcionamiento por un mes, el equipo encuentra que el diseño, la ergonomía y el campo visual se adapta perfectamente a nuestras necesidades y a las largas horas que la sala debe estar en alerta máxima.
This is the second time we have worked with Thinking Space; previously we built a control room specifically for the Quarry Operations, however this project included bringing both the quarry and lime operations together to become more efficient and effective in the way the departments operate. We had a large store room that was to be converted, the idea / concept we had was to build as large a desk and media wall as possible as this gave room for expansion.Thinking Space visited site and worked with us on a few ideas before coming to the final design where full 2D and 3D drawings were created to really help visualise exactly how the control room would look. Thinking Space were very helpful on installation dates as we were on a very tight deadline and had a critical path to stick to. Finally the installers worked in a very professional manner to a high standard, they also worked with us to ensure everything was installed to meet our requirements. In summary I would highly recommend working with Thinking Space, they provide A+ service on all aspects from start to finish.
"Thinking Space Systems really listened to what it was we wanted to create in both look and feel. The design work was essential – we worked collaboratively to achieve the best room layout and design for the new training suite. There were great little touches, such as the propeller design on the panels and green LED lights under the consoles to help create a wow factor. Everyone’s been really impressed with the result. It was a pleasure to work with Thinking Space on this".
We really are pleased with the quality of service you have provided us from end to end...From sales to design, project management and installation everything has been delivered to quality standard and one your company should be proud of...I would have no hesitation to recommend you to anyone.
Aston University recently were lucky enough to work with Thinking Space in refurbishment works of the new Security Control room. Not an easy task when accommodating a room with so much technology, and to satisfy multiple end users. This was a complete redesign, with the focus on creating not only a user-friendly space, but a calm atmosphere essential when controlling emergency incidents. It is not always easy to achieve both function and design, but it has been achieved here. I’m confident we now have the base in which to serve our community, and a space our workforce can take pride in.
Thinking Space have delivered exceptional furniture solutions within our new control room. Each of our operators now has the chance to alter their own workspace easily for comfort. It is the attention to detail, with privacy screens, cable tunnels and height adjustability that have made all the difference now. The result is that staff are more engaged, focused and productive in this new healthy working environment.
“The Thinking Space team are professional and helpful. They explained all that was needed in a clear and precise way which made it easier to picture their vision of our new control room to us. I would highly recommend Thinking Space for your ARC control room furniture, it’s made such a difference to the wellbeing and productivity of our staff here”.
“From the outset, Thinking Space understood the brief from our team and the requirements for the business. This was evident in the concept designs and initial specifications they produced. In addition, Thinking Space responded to any issues raised in a timely manner.” “Throughout the whole process, Thinking Space gave us excellent advice, clear timelines, good communication, a competent workforce that undertook and delivered the project to a high standard and on time.” “The end users, our Monitoring Team are delighted with the finished Monitoring Operation working space and it is a pleasure to show this room off to our external visitors to our business who often respond with ‘wow’”.
Working with Jason from Thinking Space was a pleasure, he understood the project brief and engaged with the CCTV operators regarding their comfort and the usability of the desks. This ensured that the final desk arrangement, lighting configuration and monitor control was as required from day one. Going through a procurement process ensured we got the value for money and quality required, this was not an issue for Thinking Space, in what is a competitive market. Regarding fit out, Jason liaised with our CCTV installation team ensuring that final fit and positioning of the desk, monitor wall and ducting was right first time. Zero snags, well done and thank you.
We approached Thinking Space with a basic plan to upgrade our control room and were impressed with the conceptual design and drawings they produced. The finished product is impressive too. Excellent build quality has accompanied a stylish, ergonomic and functional design. Lee and the team were always polite and professional. They readily assisted us and made the experience enjoyable. Since the upgrade our operators and other staff have all commented how much of an improvement the new control room is; especially around design, looks and functionality. Our revitalised control room is now a highly positive and productive working environment. Thanks Lee, we’re a genuinely happy customer.
“The team of specialists, particularly their Commercial Director, Paul Roberts, were so easy to talk to, I immediately felt at ease. I quickly understood their furniture solutions and knew that I could entrust them to deliver a modern, efficient control room to the timescales agreed”..... “It certainly has the wow factor now and I can’t thank all those involved enough for delivering the project so seamlessly by working as a team. I am so proud of this achievement, it is my legacy to Kew Gardens.”
