International School in Singapore Seeks PTS' Expertise for Its New Campus' Technology Needs
An international school in Singapore employs PTS’ services to supply the complex technology needs of its new campus that welcomed more than 1,200 students on day one.
The international school needed PTS’ services to support its learners with a 21st-century form of learning with teaching tools that were accessible to the academic community 24/7.
The new campus, which had 12 floors of educational space, 130 classrooms, nine laboratories, catered to:
1,200 to 1,400 learners on day one. The number eventually expanded to about 2,000
A diverse mix of learner nationalities. At the time, the school had learners from over 50 nationalities with British, American and Chinese learners forming the major part of the population
A staff force between 250 to 300; over 200 of which are academic staff
The school had never completed a new campus build project before. Its old campus catered to less than a thousand students, while its new one had to welcome hundreds more.
The school needed to ensure that their staff and students’ day-to-day learning activities and safety are well-supported by fool-proof and easy-to-use technology solutions.
Apart from installing AV technology solutions to support the students' learning, all areas were equipped with HVAC systems to control and monitor temperature and humidity, and even detect and suppress fires. Other security measures included:
Secure automated door and room access
Emergency lighting and controls
