Heriot-Watt University: Language Labs

Our Mission

The project brief was to transform two large classroom arrangements into a fully fitted out language lab teaching environment. Both existing areas were isolated for the duration of the works. However, it was required that noise be kept to a minimum, as the existing building was still being used as a teaching environment. JGM was responsible for the standard services works, as well as the servicing and control of the master stations and the field language lab cubicles.
