Exhibition contractor Exhibit 3Sixty has designed, built and installed a Tech Hub at The VHQ in Crawley, the UK headquarters for Virgin Atlantic Airlines, providing the airline with a technical support hub for those personnel working who need quick, hands-on support or advice.
The Tech Hub provides a focal point for repairs and fixes for Virgin Atlantic staff who are having issues with technology, they can bring their device and have problems diagnosed and fixed by tech personnel while they wait.
Darrell Etherington, head of technology operations, Virgin Atlantic, responded to Exhibit 3Sixty’s installation of the Tech Hub saying, “Just wanted to say thanks for another amazing installation. The new Tech Hub looks fantastic and a few of the Execs have seen it now and given some really good feedback. The final design fits in really well with our existing Headquarters and makes excellent use of the space.”
The 8m x 3m structure has a timber structure with laminates and utilises natural stained softwoods for the feature wall. All the electric power, lighting and network cable runs were installed off-site, and all power was terminated back to a 20amp, 3 phase unit, enabling the Exhibit 3Sixty team to install the Tech Hub quickly and efficiently, simply connecting the power and network at a predetermined location in The VHQ.
Exhibit 3Sixty director, Andy Pearce explained, “This was a super project to work on, The VHQ is Virgin Atlantic’s head office at Gatwick and is a brand new building. We worked very closely with Virgin’s design team to make sure that the Tech Hub followed the overall theme and didn’t look out of place. Our designers used stained softwood feature walls along with angled ‘tailfin’ shaped walls, alongside the overall colour scheme, to ensure that the Tech Hub sat perfectly in its new home.”Back to List
