| The decision to involve you, as our consultant, in the
upgrade of the H.R. MacMillan Star Theatre was probably the smartest move we ever made.
Your superb knowledge (both theoretical and practical) of audio, video and automation
systems was invaluable and ensured that the systems we ultimately chose were the best
possible for the money available.
. . . . there were times when your superior knowledge of video (better, in some cases,
than the contractors supplying and installing the equipment) clearly saved us a great deal
of time and angst."
Paul Deans, Programme Director, H.R. MacMillan Planetarium
"It was, of course, a very major effort on a very tight timeframe
and no part of the job was handled as professionally start to finish as the creation,
construction and installation of the video scoreboard. The best thing that happened to us
was having our Staples Center construction group tell us they were too busy to help and
suggest we contact you."
Robert J. Sanderman,
President, Anschutz Properties
(London Arena sports arena)
"You managed to bring together the concerns and requirements of
the several departments involved into a meaningful report and a set of recommendations
which enabled senior management, who were lacking technical background, to make informed
decisions as to what should be installed to serve the current and future needs of a
diverse facility like General Motors Place.
You then proceeded to prepare the technical specifications and manage a
tendering process which gave us a state-of-the-art facility within the very tight budget
set. To be accurate, the rigorous tendering and negotiation process you established
allowed us to obtain some extra needed "goodies" for which we could not budget,
and still come in under budget."
Kevin Murphy, Vice Chairman,
Orca Bay Sports & Entertainment
(GM Place sports arena)
Mr. Murphy subsequently headed up the construction team for Staples Center Arena,
and hired us to design
& specify the live video production facilities for that project as well.
"You came highly recommended and leave the project even more so.
Your technical specifications document for competitive bid purposes was
really impressive not only to me but to the critical eye of our contracts officer who
remarked that they had complete confidence and comfort to push the process rapidly based
on the high quality of your design and specification work."
Rob Ward, Creative
Director/Project Manager, Western Canada Service Centre, Parks Canada
(Gulf of Georgia Cannery
Mr. Ward subsequently hired us to design & specify additional AV systems for
for Canada Place Banff
and Parks Canada Discovery Centre Hamilton.
"I greatly appreciate the thoroughness of your efforts with
regards to developing the entire specifications for both the video scoreboard and all
ancillary video control equipment, managing the contract, overseeing the installation, and
ensuring that the end product met our expectations."
