The Father’s House is another example of a successful collaborative design-build project with Idibri. Idibri was hired by the church as the designer and AMT Systems was commissioned with the engineering, install and technical programming portions of the job. In August of 2011 Idibri and AMT initiated a project design workshop to help insure the project goals, budget and milestones were clear. The workshop spanned three days and was held in San Diego with staff from The Father’s House and specialists from both Idibri and AMT.
As with many construction projects there were some unexpected delays in the project as the church staff worked through the building’s size and associated budget adjustments. Meanwhile the collaborative technical design process allowed Idibri and AMT to speak into building changes and shift designs, insuring that the church’s technical needs were met.
The design and install focused in 6 key areas; HD video system, lighting system, campus signal distribution, outdoor speakers, tech intercoms and acoustic paneling. The video system consisted of HD cameras, routing, switching and terminal gear as well as the associated MATV systems and inter-campus connectivity.
AMT also engineered and installed the distributed audio systems in the church lobby, parking lots and outdoor common areas as well as confidence monitors, digital signage monitors and overflow monitors throughout the campus.
The lighting system that AMT engineered and installed focused in two areas, theatrical and camera. The church depends on an intricate lighting program to complement its weekend services and also required exceptional coverage and evenness for camera light support. AMT’s partnership accomplished these goals and provided a tight integration with the architectural lighting plan and system.
The large, intense lighting plan put significant requirements on the video display system and the church had a strong desire to implement HD LED screens. AMT engineered and installed 2, 17’ wide LED screens for use with IMAG and video playback. The LED screens were the perfect choice to stand up to the high illumination from the lighting system as they were able to deliver an outstanding image.
This was a distinctive project that benefited from attention to the church’s needs as AMT matched solutions to fit budgets. AMT prides itself on focusing on what will meet the client’s goals while working within the budgets established during planning. The end product provided exceptional value for a high end system that will serve the church well for years to come.
