At Smart Space Group, we understand the importance of the perfect design of the space. For that reason, we often spend a lot of time discussing the project details with the Client’s Architect and Interior Designer. At the end, we have the same goal – to achieve the Client’s satisfaction and create a stunning space!
Creating an integrated, future ready space, be it a home or commercial building, does not need to mean there is a lot of visible technology. In fact – it is quite the opposite! We think that technology should not be in your face! Unless there is a need for it to be visible of course! Moreover, we think technology should not dictate or interrupt the way space is organised! That is why we can easily hide all of the elements that need to be hidden – the screen and projector in ceiling, TV behind the picture, speakers behind the walls… It all can be done if there is time to plan and prepare for that.
We can also help you to create that extra WOW! Factor. Adding colour changing LEDs, ambient music or video feature walls, if you can imagine it, it most probably can be done!
Our services for Architects and Interior Designers are broad, and include the following:
We can advise you on the technology and solution available for specific project, attend the meetings with your Clients on your behalf, propose complete solutions and packages and help overcome constraints or problems related to specific design.
We can use your drawings to overlay any element of technology, design specific positions (e.g. speakers, cables, cinema seating and screens, etc) so that they form an overall design package for your project.
We can help you prepare tenders to other technology companies acting as impartial subject matter expert, create clear tender specification and winning criteria, check and evaluate the tenders and then monitor and assess the contractor’s performance.
We can assess and certify the buildings with regards to Structured Cabling and their fit for purpose and future readiness. We are one of only the few companies in the UK that can issue Structure Cabling Cedia Certificates.
