The P.A. People deliver sound to Bankstown Sports Club microbrewery

The P.A. People deliver sound to Bankstown Sports Club microbrewery
December 21, 2016

The newly opened Basement Brewhouse, at the Bankstown Sports Club, not only serves the best in craft beers but also offers patrons a high quality sound experience.

Installed by The P.A. People, Jason Klippel, Bankstown Sports Club’s Audio Visual Team Leader explains “the brief given to The P.A. People in the lead-up to the Brewhouse project, was to provide us with high quality distributed sound system, high definition vision and a simple, yet intuitive control system.

“They have exceeded expectations in their delivery, with some very positive feedback from early on.”

The P.A. People acknowledged that The Brewhouse was an engaging challenge from the outset, working within the confines of a fully operational club, ever conscious of noise and an existing structure.

Ross Ford, Project Manager for The P.A. People, comments “we were in constant contact with the Club’s AV Team to give final approvals on all site locations as we would not get a second go at getting it right,

Televisions around the outer walls of the venue were an initial challenge. Curtains ran behind each one and the desired outcome was not to see fix-points and related cabling. The P.A. People designed a single-point swivel bracket that the curtain could be fitted around - with the TV sitting just in front - hiding all fixings and cables.

Television screens inside the Brewhouse’s barrel shaped seating areas were an even bigger issue. The original design required single-sided units, mounted to a round pole which the joiner was supplying. During the process, the club decided to enhance these specs, which required mounting them on both sides of a square pole fixture.

The P.A. People team then came up with the mounting idea complete with tinted acrylic trim to hide all the cables and connections; a very neat result and presentation.

Ford adds “we were on site most days to ensure that we were not ‘built-out’ of any areas; thankfully we were mostly in front of where we needed to be and completed the install task days before the official opening.”

Brett Steele, The P.A. People’s Manager - Installed Systems added “in the process of this install, we upgraded the entire site-wide MATV system from analogue to digital.

"The Brewhouse was running Digital for Melbourne Cup Day.”

The high-quality venue features its own microbrewery serving pilsner, sparkling ale, pale ale and American-style pale ale, with 30 taps with a variety of craft beer and cider, and a tap wine selection for those looking for something a little sweeter, as well as a delicious burger menu and a gourmet delicatessen.
