RIBA CPD Event – Malmaison Hotel, Leeds

 RIBA CPD Event – Malmaison Hotel, Leeds

28th February 2008

Having recently undergone the training to be able to offer architects and interior designers the much sought after knowledge of how to integrate technology into their developments, and property renovations, to ensure they are ‘Future Ready’, this launch seminar was extremely well received.

Guests were treated to the luxurious surroundings of the Malmaison Hotel, where Finite Solutions’ Marketing Director, Fraser Stride, presented a seminar providing a CPD accreditation for the 100 + architects, property developers and interior designers who attended throughout the day.

With a presence from most of the major players from across the region, including national practices such as Wildblood MacDonald, Design Group 3 Architects, Work Interiors, DLA Architecture, Browne Smith Baker, Atkins Global and Ramsden and Partners, the event had huge scope.

The event was also an opportunity for architects to bring along their clients, so they could experience the technology first hand for themselves. Areas covered in the seminar included home cinema, multi room music and video, lighting control, home automation and networking, all areas in which Finite Solutions are experts.

Over £100,000 of home cinema and high end hi-fi equipment from manufacturers such as Runco, Linn, Arcam and Screen Research was on display to bring the CPD to life and guests were invited to sit back and enjoy whilst relaxing with a glass of wine and canapés.

Also launched here were Finite Solutions exclusive new C:HEAR (Comprehensive Home Entertainment and Automation Resource) specifier packs – a set of supporting literature that Finite has committed to producing to aid architects and design professionals, in creating Integrated Future Ready Homes.

Finer details such as wiring; integration; control devices; future proofing; and education on industry direction, provided great insight into a world that may sometimes be fairly far removed from the architect, in a bid to support earlier integration of technology, for the benefit of the end client.

Mark Redfern, of DLA Architecture said: “Thank you for the opportunity to come and see first hand some of the systems and services you offer. The presentation, particularly the imagery, contained in it would be fantastic in explaining the systems to our clients.”

Andrew Babb, of CB3 Design added: “I greatly appreciated your presentation, and I will be trying to promote the technology to a selection of our clients over the coming months.”

Finite Solutions provide a crème de la crème service in home entertainment using the best products available in the market place, with each project tailored to suit individual client needs.

Finite bespoke systems include home cinema, high-end hi-fi, multi room audio and visual systems, home automation, lighting control and security systems and regularly work alongside architects, interior designers and property developers. –
