Winsted played a role in a new training simulation system installed at Dyfed Powys Police HQ in Camarthen, Wales. The project enables officers to gain on-the-job training in an arena that can be monitored in simulated conditions. A custom-built horseshoe-shaped Sight Line console from the control room furniture manufacturer was supplied for the project, after Winsted’s won a competitive tender organised by IT and audio-visual systems integrator Tecknowledge.
Tecknowledge proprietor Robin Newbury said that his company provided Dyfed Powys Police with a consultative input to the design specification. “We were tasked with finding a suitable solution for the control room fit-out and I had not dealt with Winsted before. We therefore requested tender quotes from a number of suppliers, but following this process we recommended Winsted to the client. This advice was based on the high quality of the company’s control room furniture and the fact that Winsted offered the best option in terms of its service and the furniture’s return on investment. The console is built to last and by being modular it provides flexibility in terms of the ability to adapt its configuration to meet future operational requirements. Essentially, therefore, we’re not stuck with the current arrangement if needs change.”
