Working for the chosen security installer, Orion Security Solutions of Oxford, Thinking Space were delighted to be appointed to design and install control room furniture for John Lewis at their flagship store on Oxford Street, London.
The existing CCTV control room was not fit for purpose. The design brief from Jeff Scott of NorthStar Security Consultancy was therefore to create a larger space with room for 2 operators, a supervisor to operate effectively and the ability to expand in the future.
As well as greatly improving the ergonomics of the control room, NorthStar requested that operational efficiency be an important factor in the design. With this in mind, Thinking Space included special features such as blue ambient lighting installed below the desks in keeping with lower lighting levels required and task lights from the Novus MoreSpace range. These were positioned on the desk surface to compliment the monitor arms to from the same range.
For mounting the 10 larger flat screens, Thinking Space designed and installed a bespoke Evolution Media Wall, providing an aesthetic solution to assist monitoring. This has resulted in a contemporary control room that will last for many years to come.
