    Audio Visual Pricing

    When budgeting for your next Audio Visual project, consider the specific room types needed and focus your efforts to select technology that will enhance your organization’s collaborative abilities. Presentation, collaboration and conference spaces all need different technology to achieve the desired function. Space planning is important in order to have the right quantity of room types so that you can fully utilize the entire space.

    huddle rooms diagram

    These are typically where intimate communication is desired. Rooms can also be easily upgraded to add audio and/or web conferencing.

    $4K – $15K

    small conference diagram

    These are typically used for team meetings. Rooms can also be upgraded to add audio and/or web conferencing.

    $10K – $25K

    large conference diagram

    These rooms may be large enough for numerous displays, projector/screen, or even a Video Wall. Rooms can also be upgraded to add audio and/or web conferencing, but can be complex due to number of participants.

    $ 25K – $60K

    multi-purpose room diagram

    These spaces have multiple uses, so flexibility is key. They are typically designed around movable furniture that allows for numerous presentation locations and seating arrangements. These can be changed back and forth from presentation, meeting, and collaboration spaces.

    $100K – $250K

    boardroom diagram

    These spaces are typically used for presentations to a board and for collaboration within the board. Typically, higher quality equipment, or even “showpieces” are installed in these spaces, including Video Walls or Projector Lifts.

    $50K – $100K

    training room diagram

    The spaces are typically presenter led to a local audience or conferenced to a remote audience. Local voice lift in the room from a presenter’s microphone and interactivity with the display can be added for additional capabilities.

    $10K – $30K

    video conference room | traditional or web-based diagram

    Whether traditional “Codec Based” conferencing or web-based conferencing, typically two displays are mounted side-by-side for viewing the far end and a shared presentation. Table-top, ceiling, or wireless microphones are used for voice pickup.

    $ 10K – $50K

    The decision makers need to note these parameters and decide what are the most important to guide the designs up front. Proper expectations always result in happier clients and less problematic implementations.

    Some factors that contribute to overall cost of the project.

    reliability icon

    RELIABILITY

    No AV system can be guaranteed to work every time, and it may feel like the system will fail at the most inconvenient time. Systems can be designed with minimal points of failure or even backups in place to help ensure the AV systems work. This may be more important for different spaces inside the organization, for example, it may be more important for a Boardroom than Huddle Rooms.

    quality icon

    QUALITY

    “Form over Function” is a view many choose to employ in some spaces, where extras are spent on bigger and better technologies beyond what is necessary. Client facing conference rooms and Boardrooms are a couple of the spaces where this could be a determining factor.

    budget icon

    BUDGET

    Every organization is called upon to be a good steward of money. Therefore, budgetary restrictions always need to be taken into account, but how much the budget drives the design is up to the client. Is it better to create a greater quantity of simple rooms, or fewer total rooms with a higher complexity?

    expandability icon

    EXPANDABILITY

    Every organization is called upon to be a good steward of money. Therefore, budgetary restrictions always need to be taken into account, but how much the budget drives the design is up to the client. Is it better to create a greater quantity of simple rooms, or fewer total rooms with a higher complexity?

    simplicity icon

    SIMPLICITY

    We find many AV systems and capabilities are not used to the fullest extent because the systems are too difficult for the users to use. Some spaces need an operator to run the AV system that is not participating in the meeting. Keep-It-Simple is a mentality that many organizations adapt to enable all users to be able to use all systems. This may limit the more advanced capabilities in rooms where they would be desired.

    standardization icon

    STANDARDIZATION

    Another way to ensure usability across all users is to create standards for types of spaces where all “types” will function the same way, all “Small Conference Rooms” have the same technology, for example.

    flexibility icon

    FLEXIBILITY

    In organizations where user technology isn’t standardized, BYOD is encouraged, or visitors will be using the technology, designing flexibility into the systems could be necessary. It can also be useful to allow spaces to be have multiple purposes, using the same room to change between a Conference Room and Training Room.

    Common Cost Factors for Most Projects

    geographic location icon

    GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION

    Where is the project located? Some parts of the country are more expensive than others. Some rural areas may require travel due to availability of the field resources which could increase cost.

    size and type of environment icon

    SIZE & TYPE ENVIRONMENT

    Type of environment will impact price. Class A Office, Distribution Center, Manufacturing, Retail, Indoor vs. Outdoor could all impact overall cost.

    labor requirements icon

    LABOR REQUIREMENTS

    Projects being installed with a Union Labor requirement will be more expensive than projects without the requirement. Some projects require a prevailing wage to be paid to a technician which can also increase costs.

    permitting icon

    PERMITTING

    Permitting varies from state to state and city to city. One city may not require anything more than an application form to receive a permit, while others may want full engineered drawings that go through a plan review process. The full set of engineered drawings carries a substantial price tag that elevates the overall system cost. Another consideration is the time required if the review process is a requirement.

    remodel vs new construction icon

    NEW CONSTRUCTION VS RENOVATION

    New construction will typically be less expensive than renovation.

    local codes and standards icon

    LOCAL CODES & STANDARDS

    Local codes can drive cost as they vary in requirement. For instance, in some locations across the U.S. all overhead cable must run in conduit while others can be supported with J-Hooks in the ceiling.

    local codes and standards icon

    INFRASTRUCTURE

    Pathways can contribute greatly to overall system costs. Costs of core holes sizing and cutting slab for conduits needs to be considered in your budgeting process.

    economies of scale icon

    ECONOMIES OF SCALE

    What type of structure is being built? A system in a manufacturing plant is developed completely different than a high rise office building. An apartment complex can reuse the same templates for each building; this saves design time and costs.

    installation hours icon

    INSTALLATION HOURS

    Normal working hours will be less expensive than after hours or weekends.
