CDEC wins worldwide award for the second year running

We are delighted to announce that we have won a global award for our work within the education sector for the second year running.

Last night’s Install Awards 2015 saw us take to the stage to be presented with the Best Project Award for our work on the £2.5m Leicester Building Schools for the Future project.

The black tie event, organised by Installation Magazine, was held at London’s Bloomsbury Ballroom to recognise excellence within AV installations across the UK, Europe, America and beyond.

The Leicester BSF project saw us working in partnership with Capita and Leicester City Council to create 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. Earlier this year, the same project won a European wide award at the InAVation Awards in Amsterdam.

Toni Barnett, CDEC’s managing director, said: “It is a remarkable achievement to have won this global award for a second year running. To be able to say that we are responsible for the best educational installs in the world is a huge testament to the hard work of all of the team here at CDEC and cements our place as true leaders in the educational AV arena. Once again, we would like to thank everyone who has made this achievement possible; our dedicated team, our partners at Capita and Leicester City Council and of course the schools for taking the time to give us excellent feedback and testimonials.”

The Install Awards 2015 ceremony took place on 4th June at London’s Bloomsbury Ballroom to recognise achievement and excellence across projects of different sizes, scopes and budgets with fierce competition from projects across the globe. The night reflected that successful installations are a result of a careful combination of project design, product selection and teamwork.
