By RS Staff Published: August 6, 2015 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 Longtime industry veteran Robert Gilligan, formerly with Engineered Environments and VIA, has joined Marchand Wright & Associates. “I’m a huge fan of MWA’s unique technology-agnostic consulting model,” said Gilligan. “Over the last two years, I’ve seen this innovative alternative to the traditional AV design-build model greatly improve the project experience for clients, building partners, and integrators. I look forward to bringing my experience to this dynamic firm.” Working with clients and their project teams, MWA provides an unbiased scope of work along with budget development for AV, phone/data, lighting control, motorized shades, security, networking, home theater, and home control systems. The consulting firm does not sell equipment, nor does it promote any particular manufacturer; it simply assists its clients in making well-educated decisions around technology and design. MWA also helps its clients and their project teams determine the appropriate AV subcontractor to install the systems and can provide ongoing contact administration/project management if needed. MWA is currently working on projects in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Hawaii, Colorado, Florida, and Texas.
