CDEC shortlisted for a European award

CDEC is pleased to announce that we have been shortlisted for Education Project of the Year at the InAVate Awards 2015.

The European awards ceremony recognises outstanding projects in the AV systems integration market. We are shortlisted in the Education category for our work on the Leicester Building Schools for the Future project.

Working in partnership with Capita and Leicester City Council, we created bespoke, state-of-the-art AV solutions for 18 of the city’s high schools and special schools within a short time frame. The 18 installations were fully tailored to meet each of the individual school’s needs after a thorough consultation process.

Toni Barnett, CDEC’s Managing Director said: “This is a wonderful announcement to bring an excellent year to a close. The Leicester BSF project was incredibly challenging due to construction set backs out of our control, yet we delivered complete AV solutions for each and every school on time. We are incredibly proud to have had our work recognised as one of the best projects in Europe in 2014 and we look forward to the ceremony in February next year. I would like to thank all of our dedicated team members who were involved in the project, our partners at Capita and Leicester City Council and of course the schools for taking the time give us excellent feedback and testimonials.”

Andrew Orr, Programme Manager at Capita said: “During the delivery phases that were hampered by building delays, CDEC proved their value through flexibility and a willingness to adapt to an every changing build environment and timescales. The professionalism of their installers allowed robust solutions to be installed that functioned from day-one and further cemented the relationship with the schools. CDEC have been a significant contributor to the success of the BSF Leicester scheme thanks to their knowledge, capabilities, and professionalism.”

The InAVate Awards award ceremony will be held as part of ISE in Amsterdam in February 2015
