Building a new venue is an exciting phase for any investor; It is the time when the concept and ideas come to life. And around the time the finishing touches are being setup, the audiovisual and lighting meeting takes place with the integrators. You’ll realize after the meeting that walls will need to be torn down or adjusted, decoration will need serious modifications and construction time and cost will be longer and higher. So how to avoid all this unnecessary stress to an otherwise exciting period?
If your opening a space that relies on AVL - i.e. bar, museum, office building - make sure to have a sit down with the architects, construction company AND the audiovisual integrators. This will assure all teams are aligned making the planning process much smoother.
Many audiovisual installations require a specific setup to ensure the space receives the best lighting and sound.
