Hi Everyone,

I Design Facilities for Multimedia Classrooms and Presentation Centers. Do you have the prospect of a new academic building looming on the horizon at your school or college?

Maybe you are planning a major renovation of a building that was new when Benjamin Franklin was a student?

How, and what, can you include into the design process to facilitate multimedia equipment, networking, computers, presentation technology, etc into the master plan?

How can you interact with architects, construction crews, and equipment vendors to make your project a success?

How can you act as an advocate for your faculty and students to ensure that the teaching environment is conducive to learning?

I have designed over 10 multimedia presentation centers with all the bells and whistles, tons of regular size classrooms, and designed multimedia carts to replicate the large lecture hall experience in small classrooms.

I have presented at national, regional, state, and local conferences on this hot topic. I have developed a network of colleagues and experts across the country who can assist is you in designing classrooms of the future.

Each academic year I coordinate at least two site visits to Delaware Valley (Philadelphia, PA area) schools and colleges who want to showcase recent building and renovations projects.

You can learn from others' successes, and get the lowdown on the mistakes and errors to avoid the next time around.

Contact me if you need advice, or just some encouragement, to get through the dust and nuts and bolts!!
