Electronics Design Group Educates Architects at Annual AIA Event
New York City , NY-December 2, 2005-
Electronics Design Group of Piscataway, NJ, the leading high-end residential systems integration firm, trained over 140 of New York City’s top architects in Control System Integration and Lighting Control at the 2005 AIA-New York Chapter sponsored “Procrastinator’s Day” event.
Two EDG System Consultants, Alan Weissman and Scott Jordan, were on the case, each presenting a course at the two day long seminar. Day one featured EDG’s course titled, Control System Integration for Residential Applications, as presented by Alan Weissman. This course covered the principal components involved in a control system as well as the subsystems compatible for integration. Mr. Weissman educated attendees on the benefits of such a system through examining and evaluating real life case studies, and explaining how this type of technology can be applied to their projects. Some of the topics presented included whole house integration, controlling systems within a single room and HVAC integration.
Day two featured Scott Jordan as the instructor, who captured the attendees’ attention with EDG’s ulterior course titled PracticalApplications for Residential Lighting Controls. Mr. Jordan focused on explaining the practical and aesthetic benefits of having lighting control systems installed in residential spaces, displaying the enhanced efficiency and functionality through real life scenarios. Course topics included system components, dimming technology, preset scene control, and integration with other electronic systems.
The 3rd Procrastinators Day event was a success for the NY AIA Chapter, having a total of 225 people in attendance. EDG was the beneficiary of this tremendous attendance by having more than half of the audience attend their seminars, one of the largest gatherings among presenters.
“The turnout this year was incredible. Both classes were a success thanks in part to our trainers who enthusiastically presented the material to a very captive audience,” says Nick Lehotzky, EDG’s Marketing Manager. “The attendees showed a real interest in both topics. The questions they asked and the feedback they provided showed us that they understood the concepts and were prepared to apply them into their projects. We were happy to be a participant in this event, once again, teaching the NY architectural community about how they can take their projects to another level with exciting new technologies.”
Electronics Design Group was among the 24 professional AIA Continuing Education Providers presenting classes this year, benchmarking their second year as participating educators. Additionally, EDG offers these two courses via ‘Lunch and Learn’ events, held on a regular basis.
