The team at Thinking Space Systems, which is based on the south coast, has undertaken three security contracts and one transport project in Sunderland, South Tyneside and Newcastle over the last few months.
In Tyne and Wear, the firm was selected by Valley Watch to supply a high spec suite of technical furniture and display wall systems. The project was part of a major re-fit and upgrade to the monitoring and detection systems that provide vital safety and security for the businesses on the Team Valley business park.
Thinking Space manufactured a matching pair of command consoles which feature the Novus ergonomic monitor mounting arms. To mount the control room monitors, Thinking Space supplied the very latest ‘Evolution’ Media Wall system
In South Tyneside, Thinking Space’s expertise was enlisted for a council security project which required the installation of state of the art furniture in a Grade 2 listed building.
A large five person console was designed with a ‘dropped back’ format due to maximise the use of space, PC bays were included at each end of the console to ensure operators are within easy reach of IT and Thinking Space also designed a fully enclosed free standing monitor wall to house the current screens which can be modified for different screen technologies in the future.
Wayne Palmer, Managing Director of the award-winning Hampshire-based firm said, “We are delighted to have been awarded these innovative and exiting contracts and it’s great to be raising our profile in the north east.
“Each of these projects is bespoke and taps into our wealth of design, manufacture and installation know-how and it’s fantastic to be able to specify products exclusive to Thinking Space, such as the ‘Evolution’ Media Wall, which offer a cost-effective, modern and flexible solution,” added Wayne.
Thinking Space played a key role in the refurbishment of the Tyne Tunnel control room managed by TT2. It manufactured a large three tier enclosed monitor wall and curved three operator console to display and house the new SCADA and CCTV systems installed by other contractors. The control room monitors all three of the Tyne tunnels.
New control room furniture was also designed, built and installed at Newcastle Civic Centre by Thinking Space. The recently relocated council control room now features a monitor wall, CCTV console, supervisor desk and review suite for town centre CCTV monitoring.
