Newcrest Mining is one of the world’s top five gold mining companies by reserves and market capitalisation, operating mines in four countries, with a global workforce exceeding 19,000.

Newcrest Mining is one of the world’s top five gold mining companies by reserves and market capitalisation, operating mines in four countries, with a global workforce exceeding 19,000.
The move into their new offices at 400 George Street prompted the installation and programming of new AV facilities. The objective was to create a collaborative working environment through technology; where engineers and geologists could work collectively, sharing ideas and workflow. Newcrest also wanted to utilise this new technology to better track the use of their assets located in mine sites across Australia and Asia.
Each of the seven meeting rooms were provisioned with two-to-three ultra-narrow video-wall displays, enabling Newcrest Mining staff to view their 3D geological modelling software in its native resolution. These rooms also feature interactive whiteboards installed into custom joinery.
The Advanced Visualisation Centre (AVC) and Operational Analysis Rooms feature a curved screen, providing a fully immersive experience and collaborative space for the geologists. The Video wall is capable of displaying a single large format display, three independent images, or dual screen video conferencing with a presentation screen. An intuitive touch-panel and audio system combine to administer the flexibility required for the multiple configurations of these meeting spaces.
The Video Conferencing systems can be utilised in two modes; users can be seated looking at the video-wall or in presentation mode where a second camera can capture the speaker presenting. Two interactive whiteboards and projectors also feature in this system.
This project is an example of how technology can be seamlessly integrated into the background of an organisation, increasing productivity and promoting collaboration between staff members, both locally and regionally.
