Lelch AV Wins Prestigious Trillium Award for a Smart Home Technology Project
It’s always nice to be recognized. Lelch AV was recently honored with a Trillium award from the Builder’s Association of the Twin Cities. The awards go to projects that builders are particularly proud of with their trade partners and subcontractors – like us – getting the Trillium award.
The winning project involved a significant remodel and finish-out of a large basement space. The client had several objectives, and we listened carefully to their needs. They wanted a home theater room, but it was to be design-focused and minimalist, both in terms of equipment and operation.
They wanted access to music and video entertainment from various sources across the home theater and an adjacent exercise room. While they desired excellent audio and video quality, they did not want speakers and subwoofers visible. The client was not technology-focused, and wanted simple, intuitive control of the whole system. They also wanted a system they could grow with to add future capabilities. Finally, the client wanted to adhere to a budget as well.
We’re happy to report that the projected succeeded at all these levels. Read on to learn more details about this smart home technology showcase in Plymouth.
