University of Alabama College of Continuing Studies Learning Studios

The two-year project resulted in a new video production facility that includes two webcast studios for its e-learning initiative, part of a larger 100,000 square foot renovation project of the existing historic University Hall campus building which would be the new home to the College. The firm was tasked with building a studio with multiple presentation configurations that could easily be operated by both skilled and beginner staff. The solution was to include easily movable scenery, roll-down graphic backdrops and wall mounted push-button stations for different lighting positions. Housed in a former hospital, the building was completely demolished down to the concrete structure and re-built.

Provost served as an advisor over more than two years, providing key support to dream this project into being.

“Peter was the consummate professional to work with on our media production studios project at the University of Alabama. Our situation was unique in that we were looking to create a media production environment whose primary focus was to create course content for online degree programs. Peter spent a good bit of time in our early meetings listening to our explanation of needs, answering questions and offering great ideas on how his team could create a studio environment that would help us accomplish our goals. The knowledge that Peter and his team brought to the project was second to none, which was crucial to this project as we knew what we wanted but we weren’t exactly sure how to bring it to life. Even though Peter and his team were working on other projects, with a variety of scope and scale, I always felt like he and his team had time for us and were committed to the success of our project. We have been extremely pleased with the outcome of our media production studios project and we are using the facilities every day to meet our online course media production needs.”
