Lisburn-based audio-visual firm Clear AV Ltd has secured almost £5million in new contracts in the prime residential and hospitality industry markets in London, enabling the creation of 10 new jobs.

Clear AV specialises in the design and installation of the most sophisticated AV systems in the hotel and leisure, prime residential and commercial property sectors across the UK and further afield. The company has reported an increase in turnover of over 100 per cent in the past year, and forecasts the same increase in business for 2016.

The firm has been instructed on around £3m of AV contracts in the central London prime residential market, including an exclusive contract worth £1.5m from one of the the world’s leading interior design house in residential properties ranging in value from £20-90m.

Alongside this, Clear AV has also been instructed on around £2m of hospitality industry AV projects in a number of hotels, restaurants and night clubs. Most recently, the firm has completed two major contracts for the Hilton Hotel Group at the Hilton Bankside in London and the Hilton Bournemouth, installing innovative lighting control and AV systems in conference suites and meeting rooms.

“The success of Clear AV in recent months in winning these large contracts is testament to the exceptional quality of our workforce,” said MD Philip Dowds.

“Whilst there has been a perception that this level of sophistication could only be delivered by the top London AV contractors, we are proving that this is not the case.”
