D-Tech Installation at LAMDA

D-Tech International has recently completed an installation at the prestigious LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) where budding stars of stage and screen now use D-Tech RFID technology in their quest for knowledge.

D-Tech designs, manufactures and installs library security systems across the globe, and includes many of the UK’s leading universities in its client list. Every institution is unique, and D-Tech works with the library management team to meet their needs and work within their budget to provide a fit for purpose solution that enables libraries to operate more efficiently.

LAMDA may be the oldest drama school in the UK but its £28million centre for drama training, officially opened in June 2017, is just one example of the school’s cutting-edge delivery. Within the new building, amongst the theatres, rehearsal studios, backstage facilities, screen and audio suite and offices for LAMDA Examinations, The Sackler Library provides students with access to over 8,000 books and other reference materials, as well as a welcoming environment for quiet study.

The Sackler Library is LAMDA’s first designated library space so, as well as the normal challenges associated with an installation in a new build, D-Tech International had to ensure that the equipment supplied met the school’s needs and provided adequate security for the busy venue.    

Working in conjunction with the construction of LAMDA’s new build, and in line with its opening in March 2017, D-Tech International integrated a RFID installation including security gates with the library’s new LMS. D-Tech also supplied RFID tagging and an ongoing maintenance contract.

Melkorka Oskarsdottir, LAMDA Library and Course Officer, says: “Having a dedicated library has enabled us to provide students with a vital learning hub to support their training. As you would expect the school is a hive of activity and it is beneficial to all that we now provide a quiet space for study.

“We chose D-Tech International because its solution was competitive on price and I found the team to be very approachable and helpful. As I was new to the technology I needed some hand-holding and I received a very professional service from D-Tech, including support and advice. As the installation took place as part of LAMDA’s major redevelopment project there were the normal associated delays, but D-Tech was most accommodating, rescheduling when necessary.”
