Cables can be issued in the first fix but all too often AV considerations are left to the last minute, in which case the end-solution is – at best – not optimal from a technical or customer perspective. Last-minute installations are also a headache for the M&E Consultants, who are probably already operating under considerable time pressure, trying to get the job wrapped up.
When’s a good time?
The more complex the requirement, the more critical it is to get the audio visual services company involved early on in the project i.e. at the design stage. There are two key reasons for this; first-up the cabling design and the A.V. technology required should be integrated seamlessly at the design stage so that the practical implementation meets the ultimate needs of the client in a discrete, timely and cost-effective manner. Secondly bear in mind that certain equipment will need to be ordered-in and the best solution may need a reasonable lead time – often weeks – to have the right products delivered, configured and ready for installation.
One of the main things we do at the outset is listen to the “ideal” requirements of the customers – often clients are not aware of the opportunities available with new technologies e.g. in terms of sound and visual quality, connectivity, integration with the BMS etc. – we can inform the solution and add value in the planning stage, for the best ultimate outcome.
