How We Work

Before: We listen carefully to what you’re looking for and discuss all the options available to achieve it. After agreeing on a room specification, we’ll work with you to produce an estimate that works with your budget,

During: We create a complete design process from layouts to electrician’s drawings, along with an installation plan. After installing the essential cabling, we build your system offsite before returning to complete the installation of speakers and controls. Every project is supervised at Director Level for smooth, personalised, project management, with regular updates for Client and Contractor.

After: We provide full training in operating your system. Our aftercare support will then provide you with on-going maintenance and continue to advise you on the latest software and technology.

Infrastructure Inspired Dwellings approach to all AV is to build a solid infrastructure. This will in turn support all the other components of the AV system. There are four key cable systems that will create a reliable infrastructure for the rest of the systems discussed in this document: Incoming Services (Sky, Virgin, BT etc.) Data/Communications Networks (Wi-Fi with wired points in principal areas)
