In September 2015, Broadcast Management Group was contracted by the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) to provide broadcast consulting services for the technical build-out of a journalism school in Karachi, Pakistan – the Center for Excellence in Journalism. BMG served as an advisor to ICFJ by reviewing, analyzing and making recommendations on all infrastructure, architectural and electrical plans developed by ICFJ’s contractor in Pakistan.
As part of our contracted services, BMG provided feedback on the feasibility and completeness of the plans as well as a thorough review of all equipment lists to determine whether they were sufficient in achieving ICFJ’s goals of establishing a broadcast newsroom training facility. BMG traveled to Karachi, Pakistan for a 3-day trip to meet with the contractors and on-site contacts responsible for the build-out of the facility. During the trip, BMG identified potential construction issues and made recommendations on improvements to the current design plans which will have a lasting impact on the success of the school.
