When InDesign was given the job to provide the AV systems for the University of the Sunshine Coast, they had a gargantuan task in front of them. Hurrairah bin Sohail reports.

The University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) is located an hour from the city of Brisbane on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. The institute recently expanded with a three storey building: the Learning and Teaching Hub, which was a joint initiative between USC and the Australian Commonwealth Government.

The multi-tiered project included AUD$3.76 million for the provision of new audio-visual facilities which ranged from immersive spaces to videoconferencing and spanned across 50 rooms on ?ve ?oors across two campuses. InDesign provided consulting, designing and project managing services for the project.
