ECMWF (Weather Centre)

The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) carries out remarkable work in an unusual facility. While the ECMWF site houses super computers processing petabytes of data, it also has rooms like its council chamber which, to the visitor, resembles an early James Bond film set, with its impressive large table, country flags and interpreter booths.

Owing to its annualised budgets and strict procurement and compliance policies, the ECMWF’s audio visual strategy tackles discrete areas at a time. As a result, the council chamber’s audio and video conferencing had some catching up to do.


“Carillion did an excellent job with coordination and logistics. At one point, we thought we might have to delay, but Carillion managed to secure all the equipment in time and put a crack engineering team in place.” - Stuart Mitchell, Senior Analyst and Team Leader
