Control Centres are the human and built environments in which operators, controllers, engineers and planners are relied upon to make good decisions and effectively monitor, integrate and collaborate for the benefit and safety of every stakeholder involved with the business, and the plant and assets which they control.
They are expected by their customers, managers, colleagues, and themselves, to make reliable and timely decisions.
As a human-machine interface, the control centre deserves proper consideration of human centred design for maximum reliable operator output and minimal design-induced errors.
As a built environment, it demands an architectural solution which is flexible, scalable, well-crafted and has a proud and rewarding sense of place.
Control Centres Australia offers a human centred, participatory design team to integrate human factors and the built environment to provide Very Early Schematic Design Advice for the control centre project, and follow it through to definition and delivery of a safe, comfortable, functional built environment design.
