BP Helios House Install
BP 'Helios House' Flagship Site, Los Angeles, CA
BP selected DresserWayne for their flagship site in LA and I took on the responsibilities for ensuring the fueling dispensers and POS were installed and working flawlessly for their press events and initial opening. Cutting edge features were implemented including full LED light systems installed within the fuel dispensers and full motion graphics for the VGA displays. The sheet metal building structure was recycled steel and lighted columns created an exciting night-time ambience.
Custom dispensers outfitted with club-worthy LED lighting systems provided nearly endless possibilities for motion color, pulses, and flashes.
Custom VGA Graphics and Video
Part of the installation included peaking the client's interest in the possibilities for VGA content. The dispensers had an auxiliary LAN to handle all the content management, diagnostics, and monitoring functions from a remote gateway 'ix Gateway'
Screen content could be imported and downloaded to the equipment in minutes, offering a first-of-its-kind experience for the fuel customers. Full motion advertisements were created for display during the fill-up cycle for each transaction.
Environmental highlights included xeriscaping on roofing, efficient irrigation, and bamboo plantings for low maintenance costs.
The debut of this location was a smash hit complete with local media presence, full bar and food.
