PRLog - Oct. 24, 2011 - Bedford College and Shuttleworth College offer different spectrums of learning. Bedford College is outstanding in the more traditional subjects, while Shuttleworth College is dedicated to horticulture, animal care and mechanical engineering. Alike to many horticultural colleges, Shuttleworth has a large and spacious campus offering parkland, farmland and mixed use buildings. More akin in scale to a campus at a university than a college. Shuttleworth College is part of Bedford College and we have provided DeafWatch transmitters for both sites for complete campus coverage. Alike to our University deployments, students of either college will receive any of the evacuation messages on either site, for ease of movement between them.
“Both our city centre Cauldwell campus and the rural Shuttleworth College campus provide equal fire protection for our deaf and hard of hearing students, in line with our commitments to the disabled community and Disability Discrimination Act. We are very pleased with the work that Wireless Alert Solutions have done. Providing turnkey project management and qualified installation engineers to ease the process. We have selected DeafWatch as our product of choice based upon the performance of their complimentary survey, their continued competitive price and our previous experience of their company and DeafWatch product range at Bedford College. Based upon our experience, we would recommend them to other colleges.”
Margot Mason, Facilities Manager, Bedford College.
In addition, Shuttleworth boasts on site halls of residence for students and rooms for conference guests. We have supplied building specific messaging for these locations, with our unique programmed messages only waking the students in the specific building. Both campuses are covered by a single transmitter, keeping costs to an absolutely minimum and making best use of the College’s well designed fire alarm infrastructure.
“We are delighted to have both Shuttleworth College and Bedford College on board with the DeafWatch product. Despite offering entirely different challenges, the power output and quality of signal means a one size fits all approach to both campuses and continuity, familiarity and peace of mind to users at both sites.”
Chris Durham, Director, Wireless Alert Solutions Limited.
