Advanced AV to Host Quarterly Local Art Showcase Benefitting Charity (Featured Artist: Jimm Scannell)

“Technology, like art, is a soaring exercise of the human imagination.” –Daniel Bell

Our region is both ripe with technical innovation and rich in culture. We know that here at Advanced AV, and we regularly look for ways to engage with and give back to our community of colleagues, customers and fellow citizens. Most recently, we’ve chosen to celebrate the robust local art scene by hosting a quarterly Artist Showcase. This initiative not only adds touches of beauty to our hallways—it also presents us with yet another opportunity to support the people and causes closest to us.

About the Art Showcase

Each quarter, we’ll host an exhibition by a local artist. This artist—chosen by a committee of proud community-minded Advanced AV team members—will be given the opportunity to display pieces in a variety of mediums within our office outside of Philadelphia. Featured artists will offer artwork for sale to our employees, interested community members, and business partners. And a portion of the proceeds from any artwork sales will go to charity.

At its outset, the Art Showcase will be held quarterly. To expand the project in the future, new artists may be featured monthly or multiple artists may be featured simultaneously. Looking ahead, we plan to not only increase the number of artists we feature but also the space within our office allotted for displaying their work. In addition, we’re planning a future reception for all our showcased artists—including one of the forthcoming showcases that will feature the photography work of our talented Advanced AV team members.

As this project matures, it will not only bring about more featured art, but also more potential for charitable giving as a result. Something that we really believe in here at Advanced AV, […]

Leadership and Teamwork: Lessons Learned from Healthy Competition

We’re taught from a fairly young age that regular exercise can have a substantial benefit to your overall physical and mental health. And while this is not breaking news, what is pretty impressive is how many people today devote hours of time and energy toward getting healthy. And two of our Advanced AV team members have embarked on health and fitness journeys we feel are newsworthy, as we’re feeling the benefits extending beyond the weight room and into our communities and our boardrooms.

Bryan Pass, Senior Sales Engineer and GoRuck Challenge Finisher

Some of you might have heard of “rucking,” which gets its name from the term “ruck sack,” military speak for “backpack.” “Rucking” is walking (or marching) while wearing your ruck sack, and when training or in the field, soldiers can ruck 25 plus miles a day, carrying a pack that weighs upwards of 200 pounds. I know. I’m tired just reading that.

This brings us to The GoRuck Challenge, a physical and mental team obstacle event. The event is tied to military training methods, as each team is lead by a US Special Forces soldier. Lasting anywhere from 12-13 hours and ranging 15 to 20 miles long, all participants carry a rucksack with a weight equivalency of six bricks, and each team must share the job of carrying one 20-pound weight and one American flag.

Who would be crazy enough to sign up for this? Our very own senior sales engineer Bryan Pass, who agreed to participate in the chilly February event at the insistence of his friend. Soon, several other friends had joined his “team within a team.” And this, Bryan said, was part of the reason he didn’t give up.

“The philosophy is that people are […]

Advanced AV, LLC Announces New Engineering Procedures
West Chester, PA – June 29, 2015 – Advanced AV, LLC announces the implementation of the TEAM approach in their engineering procedures. In an effort to streamline their process, an engineer and a drafter work continuously together to move from one project to another. This provides better time management and fluid movement between projects.

“The TEAM concept has proven to be a real success in engineering,” said Susan Lucci, engineer manager for Advanced AV, LLC. “The procedure establishes a better understanding of our clients likes and preferences, creates a stronger relationship between the client and engineering team and has allowed us to execute more efficiently.”

Engineering works together as teams for ninety percent of current Advanced AV, LLC’s projects. If a project is delayed, rather than abruptly shifting an engineer or drafter to other projects, the TEAM concept allows for a more organic shift to and from projects. This enables the teams to have the flexibility to manage difficult timelines. This small efficiency of time is beneficial when scheduling projects.

“We currently have three established teams using the TEAM concept and will continue to implement this approach with additional teams. The collaboration and mix of knowledge has brought strength and confidence to our engineering team,” said Lucci.
