As a referral through the trade the Campsie project team were bidding for Lottery funding to re-establish this community based project. They required proper consultancy to make a professional bid application which d3 walked through with them. A flexible lighting, Pro-Audio, projection and control solution were installed late 2011 as part of a succesful quality bid to establish the hall as a `fit for use` venue. It proceeds to provide quality services to the local community. d3 were delighted to work with the team and wish them every success for the future.
Douglas Chappelle, Project Co-ordinator, Campsie Memorial Hall
`When Campsie Memorial Hall was taken over by the community in December 2010 the management committee were keen to make an impact as soon as possible. The hall can comfortably seat 200 people and has a good sized stage. Its full potential was not being realised due to outdated sound and light equipment.
In order to rejuvenate the hall and increase its appeal an entry was made to the Jubilee People`s Millions for funding to install a PA system, stage lighting and a projection system. When we had found that we had progressed to the second stage of the process we had to move quickly to find a partner to interpret our dreams. d3 were identified as a candidate and quickly established themselves as preferred supplier to deliver the solution if the bid won. After an initial site visit it was obvious that the team at d3 understood our vision clearly and accurately interpreted our ideas. They also managed to deliver the parts of the solution that we didnt know we needed and were able to deliver on our requirement that the system could work on two levels - switch on, plug in and go, as well as the more technical live venue mode.
On June 29 2011 our project went to the public vote and we won. We quickly confirmed all the details and work began at the start of September. Two weeks later we had a state of the art sound system, wonderful stage lighting and a HD projection system for our community cinema. We have been delighted with the standard of workmanship and professionalism of the team at d3. They took our ambitions and turned them into reality. We now have a hall that has, in a few short months, put on live music, pantomimes, youth theatre productions and regular community cinema viewings. None of this would have been possible without the dedication of the team at d3.
