Professional A/V Consultation

Our team can provide you with an ideas for developing your space to meet your presentation technology needs.  This involves scheduling a time to meet with you and your team, visiting the space and evaluating it, and providing you a written estimate you can use to make good decisions.

Expand or Collapse all.

How long can I expect before someone contacts me?

Once you complete our request form, a technician will contact you by phone or email and set up your consultation.  This typically takes 1-2 business days, unless it's within the first 3 weeks of Fall or Spring Semester, in which case it would be 5-7 days.

How long is the estimate good?

Our estimates have a 10% contingency fee included to cover increase of prices at time of purchase.  After 3 months we recommend a review of the request before proceeding.

Why shouldn't I hire an outside contractor?

Our experience has been that outside contractors are difficult to find two-to-three years after they have completed the job, often leaving you without support.  We are here to stay, our quality is constant, and will always support our work.
