University of Alambama

Tuscaloosa, AL

University of Alabama College of Continuing Studies

The new video production facility including two new webcast studios for the University of Alabama was a result of a collaborative effort with both client and architect spanning over two years.  

Provost Studio was engaged early in the planning and budgeting process and provided pre-design and broadcast infrastructure consulting services including scenic, lighting and acoustic design.

The project involved building 2 new webcast studios for the College of Continuing Studies(CCS) e-learning initiative but was part of a larger 100,000sf renovation project of the existing historic University Hall campus building, which will be the new home for the College. 

Biggest Design Challenge:

One of the biggest design challenges was providing a flexible studio with multiple presentation configurations that could easily be operated by skilled and non-skilled broadcast staff.  Our solution included easily movable scenery, roll-down graphic backdrops and wall mounted push-button stations for different lighting positions. 

An additional project challenge was the existing building site. Once used as a hospital, the building was completely demolished down to the concrete structure and re-built.  Our team coordinated with the project architect and engineering team regarding placement of base building systems (HVAC, electrical and acoustics) to support the new studios.
