Sometimes, Simple Works Better – Sound and Communication Magazine

When Schiller’s AV was invited to bid on designing and installing presentation systems for the new 12-story BJC HealthCare administrative building in St. Louis’ Central West End neighborhood, Schiller’s first reaction was to design a system that featured all the bells and whistles. After all, BJC HealthCare is one of the largest nonprofit healthcare organizations in the United States, with 13 hospitals and multiple community health locations.

Based on experience in prior medical installations, Schiller’s staff understood that medical communication applications generally require all monitors and projection systems to deliver extremely high resolution and complex networking capabilities. Schiller’s won the project by doing just the opposite: listening to the customer and designing solutions both functional and budgetary. The project included five conference rooms and 29 meeting rooms, each with a different communication requirement.

BJC Clinical Equipment Planner Cyndy Paul, who was tasked with keeping all elements on target and on budget, said, “We brought what we learned from previous projects to the table. We worked closely with Schiller’s team on the design, stating clearly what we did not want and what we did want. We didn’t want to look back and question why we did something that wouldn’t serve us well in the future. And, Schiller’s came back with solutions.”
