Our pricing is intended to ensure value for money is achieved on all government orders, and even if you do find something cheaper, please let us know and we'll do what we can to assist.

Do you do installation work?

Within the public sector we regularly design and install systems throughout the UK for training rooms, waiting areas, conference rooms, and lecture theatres. Whether new build or inclusion within an existing facility we will be able to advise on how to achieve the best integrated audio visual solution.

Given the requirement for providing good accessibility for all, we can also assist councils, hospitals and government bodies in developing AV strategies, and to ensure best compliance with current accessibility legislation.

We have worked alongside numerous PPP and PFI contractors on new build primary and secondary schools, as well as hospitals and other pubic/private sector buildings. Our installation team provide a complete solution via project management services that cover the planning, design, installation and maintenance stages of a wide range of projects.

Within assembly and lecture theatres we have also designed and installed fully integrated AV systems to include projection equipment, PA systems and infra red induction loop systems. We can also help you choose the most appropriate projection screens depending on the room design and your requirements - whether it be Electric, Manual, Tripod, Ceiling, Ascending, fastfold or another alternative.
