Vanti delivers tech CPD sessions to Arcadis’ Intelligent Buildings team

Team Vanti helped a group of building technology experts from design, engineering and management consulting company Arcadis to understand more about the role of a Master Systems Integrator (MSI) as part of a visit to our Upper Gough Street HQ in Birmingham.

Around 20 members of Arcadis’ UK team visited Vanti’s HQ for an educational afternoon to learn more about how Vanti deliver smart buildings and see first-hand our technical capability in electronics design, manufacturing and high-end audio-visual system design.

As part of the afternoon, Arcadis’ team took part in four separate sessions on differing topics. Ian Mason delivered our certified CPD course, “The Role of MSI in Smart Buildings”, which explores the importance of engaging an MSI to successfully deliver a holistically considered, modern smart building experience.

Our CEO Mike Brooman got technical on building operating systems, while Matt Wellings and Matt Bentley gave demonstrations on product assembly, electronics research and development and the challenges of high-end audio system design.

One of our smart building experts, Ian Mason, said: “It was great to welcome Arcadis to our HQ to deliver our new CPD course to them. Hopefully our discussions and activities gave them more insight into the breadth of knowledge and experience Vanti bring to the industry and the mission we are on to drive best practice when it comes to delivering technology within buildings.

“Buildings are a fundamental challenge to businesses trying to reach ESG targets. The successful delivery of smart buildings is key to achieving these goals and so demand for our services is really beginning to surge. It’s important that in our role as experts in the field, we can share our knowledge with others. There are more buildings than Vanti can touch and only through our collective efforts can we truly make the impact required.”

John Gleeson, Director at Arcadis’ Intelligent Buildings team, said: “Vanti are specialists in the technical design and implementation of technology within buildings and it was a hugely beneficial experience for us to take Vanti’s CPD course as well as spend some time seeing what went on behind the scenes.

“The variety of domain expertise on show was impressive and It’s good to acknowledge all the considerations that go into providing the best experience for people who use technology within buildings.

“We had some great feedback from the team who attended on the day, and it certainly gave us food for thought for when we work on projects in the future.”
