Project Title: USC School of Cinematic Arts - Phase III
The new building, which has three floors of cinematic classrooms and a basement floor, features nearly 100 poke-throughs that deliver AV, power and data access from a single receptacle.

Technology:

The USC School of Cinematic Arts has a long list of exceptional alumni in every field of film, television and interactive media -- including George Lucas, whose foundation’s $175 million donation in 2006 is funding the school’s expansion with a new 137,000 square foot facility. Now in Phase III of construction, USC chose CSI Electrical Contractors; we are honored to complete this phase and extend USC’s tradition of building excellence.

The new building, which has three floors of cinematic classrooms and a basement floor, features nearly 100 poke-throughs that deliver AV, power and data access from a single receptacle. This complexity, and the building’s stringent acoustic requirements, called for the capabilities of Autodesk Revit MEP, an advanced BIM system that gave CSI’s electrical engineers the right tools to design even the most sophisticated building systems. CSI is also using Revit to produce the COBie deliverable required by the university.

CSI’s work for the USC School of Cinematic Arts is proceeding on schedule, with a February 2013 completion date.
