The Wellcome Trust has chosen LCD displays from Avire for the refurbished public lifts in Wellcome Collection in Euston, London.
The lifts were upgraded as part of a major development of Wellcome Collection, a free exhibition and public events venue exploring the connections between medicine, life and art.
“One of the main objectives of the development project was to improve vertical circulation,” explained Chris Bunker, Construction Director at the Wellcome Trust. “We were getting a lot of people visiting the venue, exploring the ground floor but being reluctant to explore further, particularly the upper floors where there are more galleries and exhibition spaces.”
Avire supplied four 19-inch Panorama media displays from E-Motive for the car operating panels in the lifts in Wellcome Collection, plus 36 R1-043 screens for the landing indicator panels. The lifts previously featured basic displays and static signage.
Avire distributor Dewhurst UK played a prominent role in the project. In addition to specifying the Panorama, Dewhurst developed both the layout and content of the display, while full network commissioning was carried out by the company’s technical team.
