In 2015, Basin Electric & Technology was chosen by Midland Christian School in Midland, TX to offer top down, turn key solutions for the school's brand new student life center / cafeteria building project. Because Basin Electric & Technology is a fully-integrated company, Midland Christian was able to take advantage of our company's teamwork and streamlined processes.
The new building is a large multi-purpose space, therefore the design needed to be able to cover many functions while still maintaining ease of use and productivity. Our electricial and technology specialists worked several months with the school to lay out the perfect package to meet the school's needs. Our electricians wired the entire building to host a top of the line commercial kitchen and cafeteria, power for the entire technology infastructure, as well as supplying beautiful lighting both in and outside of the facility. One of the main features of this project is the state of the art LED lighting inside and outside of the student center. Inside, rows of dimmable LED strip lights were installed with matching LED pendant lighting, giving the school the ability to go from a high brightness environment to an intimate low lighting setting with a push of a button. Outside, our electricians installed beautiful outdoor lighting around sidewalks, parking and the infastructure of the building to allow the building to be highly illuminated at during the evening hours.
Our Technology team provided multiple solutions for Midland Christian's new building project. Entry access to the building, as well as IP Camera solutions were dispatched on every entrance and exit, providing the school the ability to monitor security of the building at all times. Our Audio, Video, Lighting crews installed an amazing presentation system for the school to utilize for programs and performances. All of the AVL design was integrated for simple control by faculty and staff, all from a iPad Mini. Our Datacom team provided an impressive fiber and cat 6 networking infastructure, making sure that connectivity throughout the entire building would be seemless.
In May of 2016, Midland Christian School in Midland, TX contacted Basin Electric & Technology to provide a solution for the school's McGraw Gymnasium audio and lighting systems. Desgined as a multi-purpose gymnasium and auditorium, the school was in need of an audio solution that could endure the riggors of sporting activites, yet provide crystal clear audio for the school's sporting events, concerts, theater productions and general assemblies. Our Audio, Video, and Lighting team designed and installed a system that provides everything the school requested.
For the audio speakers we teamed up with Worx Audio in North Carolina, to integrate the company's TrueLine X2 and X3 series all in one compact line array speaker system throughout the gym. Anchored by (2) TrueLine TL118SS Sub Woofers for clean low end, this system provides a full-range coverage that had not been experienced previously. At the helm of this audio system in the rock solid, Behringer x32 digital mixing console, with iPad integration. For presentations and general communication, we integrated (4) Sennhieser Evolution Wireless D1 series wireless microphones, providing clear speech and intelligibility to the entire room.
On the lighting side, Midland Christian needed a solution to the auditorium's outdated theatrical lighting infastructure. Utilizing our partnership with Jands, we replaced the school's old lighting infastructure with a Jands Vista M1 controller and software running on a Mac Mini. We love the Jands Vista platform because it provides professional level lighting control, while maintaining ease of use and flexibility. From theater productions to concerts, this new lighting infastructure provides the best possible solution to the school's creative arts programs.
Basin Electric & Technology is proud to be apart of this project for Midland Christian School and we look forward to many successful performances and events in th future!
