Circuit of the Americas Hosts Formula One with Community

Austin’s Circuit of the Americas (COTA) is America’s first purpose-built Formula One racing track. Completed in late 2012, COTA’s campus includes the Main Grandstand with VIP Lounge, the Grand Plaza with food court and shops, a 251 foot (77m) Observation Tower and the Pit Building with an adjacent Media Center. The track includes bleachers at several locations to supplement the Grandstand seating. 

Although the Formula One and other races are the site’s main attractions, A/V systems play major supporting roles. Architect Tilke’s Formula One designs include race control systems and basic audio and video systems but Circuit of the Americas chose to upgrade and/or supplement the A/V systems in many areas. 

Circuit of the Americas retained consultant Acoustic Dimensions for the many of the venue’s networks and for the audio and video system upgrades. Acoustic Dimensions value engineered the low-voltage systems and, in cooperation with Hughes Associates, led the effort to comply with the mass notification code. AT&T, the overall campus technology contractor, chose Ford AV to assist in the A/V systems field design and installation.
