I know that you're still thinking about back-to-school and back-to-church, since it's still summer and August just started. The Christmas music isn't playing yet, but if you have projects that need to be in place for Christmas, it's time to start thinking about it now.
Finding time for early planning is never easy, but it's critical to having everything work out as you hope it will. It's not unusual at all to have delays related to construction and equipment that are out of your control, and ours. A couple of our larger installation projects this summer have been delayed by weeks and even months, and both situations have been out of our control and that of the church or facility owner.
Audio/video/lighting integrators are what some call "last trades", meaning that we're the last ones to start to work after the room is clean from the chaos and mess of construction. No one wants a bunch of dust from sanding and cutting on and inside their new equipment, so we wait and then often have to hurry because once the general contractor is finished, he's always in a rush to turn over the building and move on to the next project, no matter if he was two weeks late allowing us to get started.So if you have projects to do, it's not too early (or late - yet) to start planning for the end of the year. We are booking projects into October and even November at this point. We can help you with both design and equipment for self-integration or for projects where we come on site to work. Please let us know how we can be helpful.
