Technology & Infrastructure

Technology tailored to your vision, resources & budget.

We understand that schools need an array of technology installations to provide an effective and efficient learning environment. This includes both core IT infrastructure requirements (including IT suites, servers and networks) as well as peripheral technologies that are paramount to the classroom experience.

With technology evolving at an exponential pace, there are a myriad of alternatives to traditional projector and whiteboard. Market leading AV equipment is consistently utilised both inside the classroom and outside for meetings and presentations in halls and auditoriums.


With todays choice of interactive whiteboards and ultra-short throw projectors, tablets, wireless technologies and large flat panel displays, it is important to select the optimal technologies for your teaching requirements.
