PlanNet Selected for USC Student Health Center Project
The Trammell Crow project management team for the new USC Roger and Michele Dedeaux Engemann Student Health Center has selected PlanNet Consulting to lead the design of AV and ITinfrastructure and systems to be used in the new USC facility.
A new, 101,000-square-foot student health center designed by HKS, is being constructed on USC’s University Park campus, supported by a $15 million gift from longtime USC supporters Roger and Michele Dedeaux Engemann. Michele is a trustee and alumna of the university, graduating in 1968 from the School of Theatre. She and Roger are also USC parents.
The building encompasses five levels with a wide variety of audio visual features that PlanNet is currently incorporating. One of which is the lower level training room, featuring a large wall mounted LCD flat panel display with touch screen ability, floor box inputs, and a distributed audio and control system.
A few of the equipment items that have been added include a ceiling mounted screen and projector, large LCD flat panel displays, distributed speaker system, floor box inputs for lecterns, wireless microphone and Blu-Ray DVD player, and an assisted listening systems for attendees. The control system for both rooms is designed with two wireless control panels that will control each room independently when divided, and one as a master when combined.
Set to open in spring 2013 and named the Roger and Michele Dedeaux Engemann Student Health Center, the new facility will be located along Jefferson Boulevard adjacent to Fluor Tower and in close proximity to other student residences. Lawrence Neinstein, M.D., professor of pediatrics and medicine, Executive Director of the University Park Health Center and Senior Associate Dean of Student Affairs, will lead the center.
The new center, includes unlimited primary and urgent care, comprehensive counseling and health promotion services.
