GV Multimedia’s work was recently spotted on the BBC’s recent documentary At the Exeter Northcott. The programme focussed on the theatre’s new artistic director’s efforts to turn the Northcott around after audience figures dropped and financial pressures took their toll on productions.

The documentary served as a fantastic look behind the scenes of the theatre and the efforts undertaken that gave the Northcott a new lease of life.

Over the past year, GV Multimedia's Hounslow team has developed a healthy relationship with Kingston University. Working with the university to develop their facilities, the team has worked tirelessly throughout the summer in the design and installation of an impressive campus-wide AV system. Including a record-breaking installation on Panasonic projectors, the work at the university has been notable for a variety of factors. As such, the team always appreciates such positive feedback from our customers and so would like to take the opportunity to thank IT Project Manager Caroline Cabraal for her recent kind words:

Exeter’s Sales Manager Steve Grimes remains as characteristically calm and composed as ever when faced with cameras on the door at the AV Awards which took place at the Grosvenor Hotel in London last month. Eschewing the option of a brief smile at the lens before walking on, Steve instead grasped the opportunity for stardom with both hands and stole focus for a few snaps while Divisional Director Richard Watts looked on in awe, unable to curb the South West Sales Manager’s bountiful enthusiasm for self-promotion.

Despite Steve’s inimitable presence at the event, the GV team sadly didn’t win the Best Education Project award for the Exeter branch’s superb work at Cardiff University’s Business School (CARBS). Still, an enjoyable evening was had by all. The work at CARBS marked the third time that GV have been a finalist for the Best Education Project prize. The first nomination was back in 2011 for the group’s work at Bournemouth University’s Kimmeridge House while the following year, the Exeter team received a High Commendation for the all-encompassing AV system designed and installed into Falmouth University’s Academy of Innovation and Research.

The Exeter team is delighted to have received some fantastic feedback from University of Bristol’s Senior Learning Facilities Technician, Kate Clements. After carrying out a project throughout the University’s Queen’s Building over the summer, Kate contacted GV to say:

“I just wanted you to know how brilliant your staff has been with our recent installations in the Engineering Department, Queens Building - particularly Richard Godfrey with all the organising, as well as Dave Bates and Andy Teague who did a wonderfully neat job with the installation.

It is a pleasure to work with GV, many thanks for all the efforts you put into getting the job done.”

GV Exeter would like to extend their gratitude to Kate for her kind words. The team has worked alongside University of Bristol for many years and are proud to be able to not only carry out installations, but to continue to impress one of our most loyal and valued customers as well.

On 27th July, GV’s Lutterworth waved goodbye to their picturesque setting at Claybrooke Parva and relocated to new offices at Coventry. Having secured bigger and better premises in the Midlands, the GV Coventry team will miss their old home but look forward to the many benefits that the site has over the old Lutterworth branch. We wish the team all the very best in their new location.
