AUTHOR: Inavate

A Welsh purchasing-consortium has appointed Drake AV as preferred supplier for AV design and installation in higher education facilities.

The HEPCW (Higher Education Purchasing Consortium Wales) aims to cut costs for its members with the appointment. Drake AV was put through an elaborate competitive process to satisfy the consortium the appointment was offering value for money, said Drake’s Ian Lewis.

Drake AV also said it was the highest ranked supplier for AV hire and events management to consortium members.

The three-year contract includes members of both HEPCW and Value Wales. The two organisations cover almost all the higher education and public bodies in Wales. The framework agreement covers design and installation work for meeting rooms, classrooms, lecture theatres and new build projects.
