Qiagen – Manchester, CITYLABS 2.0

Towards the end of 2021, biotechnology company QIAGEN announced the completion its European Center of Excellence for Precision Medicine move into Manchester’s CityLabs 2.0, underlining the city’s role as QIAGEN’s global hub for diagnostics development.

Why MVS was brought in

To enable hybrid working and global collaboration this state-of-the-art facility required an AV installation to suit.

Our AV experts were selected as their AV partner in Manchester to deliver an effective solution. Read on to learn what we did.

Project overview

In total we equipped 43 meeting spaces, with room booking throughout. 31 rooms are set up as Zoom Rooms using Logitech MeetUp and Logitech Rally to suit room sizes. Clevertouch interactive displays with CleverShare USB-C dongles are used for team collaboration in dedicated collaboration spaces and medium and large meeting rooms.

Divisible meeting rooms

Amongst these spaces are 3 divisible meeting rooms and 2 training rooms. When closed the separate rooms are set up as separate Zoom Rooms. When opened out the AV systems (Bose speakers and Shure ceiling mics) are combined, a Crestron panel is used for control and, for large meetings, Optoma projectors and drop down screens can be deployed.

Successfully deployed

This large AV installation was successfully deployed after a period of detailed consultation to understand exactly what the use cases were for all meeting types and spaces from which MVS could then use its expertise and vendor relationships to design the right solution for Qiagen.

We’re proud to have played our part in making this Manchester office a site of global excellence.
