Divisible Space for Live Events and Collaboration


The client brief specified secure, virtual collaboration infrastructure for one large space – divisible when required for small groups or to run concurrent programs simultaneously.

The primary use of the space is for Code Club and Raspberry Jam attended by children, which demands a simple yet robust solution. One end can also be used as a boardroom for general meetings using Google Hangout hardware. 

The whole space also functions as a single, large live-conferencing venue for large gatherings and all-staff meetings connecting UK and international Raspberry Pi Foundation sites.

“The service we received from Snelling was simply first class. From establishing their understanding of our requirements to the design and installation, their entire process was a testament to their experience and in-depth knowledge.
