When it came to opening its new facility in time for the first day of school, Knowledge Academies knew who to call for help and MCC Nashville answered the challenge eagerly. At MCC we are adaptive, and it took flexibility to accommodate the school’s schedule for a project that involved many facets. “MCC Nashville moved mountains to ensure our main entrance doors were secure and capable of passing code inspections. Without this clearance, our students, teachers and families couldn’t have occupied the completed phase of the high school on time,” says Art Fuller, Founder of Knowledge Academies, Inc., in a recent school publication.
What started as an old Best Buy building in a strip mall in Nashville, TN, is now well on its way to being a state-of-the-art educational facility, bringing smiles all across the community. The partnership with MCC Nashville started with a new sound system for the gymnasium. This custom-designed audio system is used daily during gym classes and school functions to help reduce the stress on teachers as they communicate with large groups of students. But the sound system will really shine as Knowledge Academies Tigers take the basketball court. MCC’s Audio Visual Division specializes in custom building audio systems that fit the specific space they will occupy. Because of this, our systems provide top quality audio without the interference and “echo” that large spaces like gymnasiums and auditoriums are known for. By overcoming these acoustical challenges, MCC is able to provide our clients the best possible sound for their facility and we know the KA Tigers will take full advantage of this to raise the roof during games!
In addition to making things easier for the teachers and faculty, MCC wanted to make sure the future of the KA students was considered. “As part of our unlimited design and training, we offered to include the students to give them real world audio skills. After all, this is Nashville, The Music City”, says Destin, the AV & Security Sales consultant from MCC Nashville. Knowledge Academies will be able to use the existing and future AV system installations MCC has provided to educate their students in the current audio and video technology through “career advancement workshops, information session(s) on college access, business-connected internships, and community celebrations that recognize the excellence and potential” of KA students.
In addition to the audio-visual installations, MCC Nashville provided security solutions to Knowledge Academies that help the facility remain secure during and after classes. With keyless entry and security doors, parents can rest assured their children are safe from unauthorized access to the school. Art Fuller says, “All these pieces are essential to establishing a strong infrastructure and backbone supporting KA’s vision for learning.”
MCC Nashville is proud to have a “sound, safe, and secure partnership” with Knowledge Academies and we look forward to many more years and opportunities to build upon this relationship.
