Integrators, Consultants and Project Managers

This show explores the roles of integrators, consultants and project managers on a connected home project. We have a representative from each profession to help us take a closer look with Dan Eades from integrator, Environ, Davy Currie from consultants, Infracore, and project manager, Ricky West from Regency Grove. How do these relationships work? What benefits do the disciplines bring to a project? And, is the dynamic more about collaboration or confrontation? We’re in the thick of Awards season, so we’ll also be checking out how you can the most of a statement project. Dan is put under the spotlight in our Hot Seat Q&A to tell us the best part of being an integrator and reveal which celebrity he is most often mistaken for. This episode is recorded in the Lutron Experience Centre in London. Our thanks to them and also to pod partners Meridian, AWE and Sony for their support in making the Integrated Home series possible.

Lighting, Awards and Experience Centres

We examine the big issue of lighting in the company of Homeplay’s Managing Director, James Ratcliffe, alongside Nic Black, Principal of The Pyramid Group. We ask how integrators can bring lighting design and lighting control into their business. What's involved and how will embracing lighting change your business offering for the better? As the CEDIA Awards open for entry, we also talk to James and Nic about taking part in Award schemes. What does it take to win an Award and is it worth all the effort? The episode is recorded in one of the industry’s newest showroom spaces, the Homeplay Experience Centre in Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey. James tells us about the Experience Centre, explaining how it came about, how the project evolved and, now it's open, how it's working. We're very excited to launch a new, in fact, our first competition.

Ben shares his thoughts with honesty and characteristic good humour, and also speaks openly about the positives integrators can find in the current situation.
