Congratulations to ETC Palm Beach out of West Palm Beach, Florida for winning in the following category:
- Excellence in Lighting: Riverfront Resort Paradise, ETC Palm Beach, LLC
The Riverfront Resort Paradise home started with some drinks, a late afternoon boat ride and a stunning empty lot perched on the water! The owner, who was also the builder wanted to create a showpiece that would deliver on the promise of what a SMART home can do as well as deliver on a design and installation that would differentiate it from others. The intake process took months as we educated the client on some unique features such as Circadian Lighting and Color Changing KETRA fixtures, to working out how a Theater could act as a casual TV room, Golf Simulator, and movie Palace! All of this with a design aesthetic that was comfortable and practical for a man with a growing family and a new business.
“Truly a team effort!”, Paul Biava, the owner of ETC Palm Beach said. “We brought 11 people to CEDIA so we could share this event as a team and allow our frontline to experience this great EXPO. Winning was just the icing on the cake. I wish I could have brought everyone from the company because without all of them, this just doesn’t happen.”
“ETC’s core mission is to WOW and AMAZE our clients” says George Malin, Director of Operations and System Design at ETC Palm Beach. “The client was absolutely blown away by what our team was able to achieve. We couldn’t be prouder.”
Two members of the team put it best: “It was an exhilarating experience to be recognized by the industry for this project!” says Scott Fitzwater, Design Engineer. Ryan Match, Programmer exclaimed “Winning an award at CEDIA just further validates that we work for an amazing company with an amazing team.
