CI Awards
June 21, 2013 | by CI Staff

Commercial Integrator is all about troubleshooting. A client has a problem or a need, and it’s the integrator’s job to come up with a plan to fill that need. And that’s only half the battle.

Once onsite, any number of problems can arise that require quick thinking and ingenuity to bridge the gap between the best-laid plans and the real world problems that can lead those plans astray. Time in and time out, installers find a way to make it to not only make it work, but to make it exceed customer expectations.

Once again it’s our pleasure to showcase some of the best commercial installations carried out throughout the country in 2012. Throughout the year we get in-depth looks at some of the creative and innovative solutions that installers develop for their clients, and for our second annual installation of the Integration Awards we were thrilled to get nearly 100 entries this year across 11 vertical markets: corporate, government, health care, higher education, hotels, house of worship, K-12 education, restaurants/bars/clubs, retail, large venues and casinos. 

The editors and writers of Commercial Integrator teamed up with the editorial staff of our six TechDecisions sister websites to pore over the entries. Just like last year, some projects immediately rose to the top of our consideration, while others merited spirited debate. Regardless of which projects one, one constant element shown through in each piece of work: the tenacity and originality of thought and design that each firm brought to bear on its work, the client being the ultimate winner in the end.

We were pleased to announce the winners at a formal unveiling this month at InfoComm 2013 in Orlando, Fla. and present them, as well as the honorable mentions, on CommercialIntegrator.com.
