As a truly independent consultancy the primary focus is on how a system will be used, as it is only when the detail of this is understood can technologies be looked at. Technology should never steer the requirement of the client.

With the convergence of AV and IT technologies engaging with a consultancy that understands these two areas is key.  The ideal time to bring consultancy services on board with any new build or refurbishment project is, simply, as early as possible.  Modern solutions are constantly evolving and technically complex often requiring integration with other services. It is more cost effective to design an AV or IT solution into a project than treat the these as post completion works.  Early engagement is also key to ensure that design changes are handled so that the final solution remains true to the original client requirement.

Maintaining a focus on the aesthetics of a space is also important to consider when deploying AV technology.  Good coordination with architects and build teams is also key to ensure the end result technically and visually meets the requirements of any given project.
