As engineers, architects, and designers, our role extends far beyond just blueprints. The comfort and safety of the building’s occupants is an essential consideration in design. Great office design will install measures to address potential work hazards and keep staff and data safe from the very beginning of the design process. In other words, prevention is the best policy.
While earlier we focused primarily on low voltage design, now it’s time to dive deeper into its close relation: audio/visual (AV) design. AV design is the process of understanding the communication and entertainment needs and goals of a client and thoughtfully developing technology systems to address and meet them.
When planning your new or renovated buildings, the subject of low voltage systems–the backbone of building technology–needs to occur right away rather than be left behind as an afterthought. Proper advanced planning can ensure your low-voltage systems help you operate at maximum levels of performance. And that’s more important now than ever.
