Pyramid is celebrating double success for its innovative design projects within the home technology industry.
The Plymouth firm walked away with two accolades at the prestigious CEDIA industry awards, held in London on Friday evening (Sept 29).
Pyramid was crowned the best in the industry for its unique, integrated lighting and control installation, incorporated in a multi-million pound residential development in Scotland.
The firm also walked away with the title of Best Home Cinema for what judges described as its ‘technically perfect’ creation using a host of leading technologies.
CEDIA is the international trade association for companies around the world that design, manufacture and install technology for the home.
Nic Black, managing director of Pyramid, said: “We are delighted. To have walked away with two awards at such a prestigious event is fantastic.
“It is a huge accolade for us as a company and importantly puts us up there amongst our peer groups in the residential technology industry.
“Not only is it recognition but also underpins the fact that we are very good at what we do, and that success is something that we should all be very proud of.
“It is a badge of credibility and hopefully will make us stand out in the marketplace, particularly in the West Country.”
The award for Lighting, Control and Installation was given for Pyramid’s iconic Ladies Lake project in St Andrews, Scotland.
The cliff-top holiday home, which takes in panoramic views across West Sands and Castle Sands beaches, uses sensitive architectural lighting and unique circadian rhythm lighting, which helps its American owners fight jet lag.
This state-of-the-art home technology helps regulate the human body clock and influence sleep-wake cycles by linking the way lighting changes colour temperature throughout the day to be more in line with the body’s biological needs.
Pyramid’s second award for Best Home Cinema was for its Dolby Atmos 9.2.6 private cinema installed in Cambridge, which featured a host of cutting-edge technology including Trinnov audio processing, Artcoustic speakers and Sony 4k projection.
Nic added: “These two winning projects demonstrate technical experience in all aspects of design, installation and commission whilst meeting all applicable industry performance standards.”
Pyramid, based in Plympton, is currently adding the finishing touches to its brand new showroom which brings together and demonstrates the latest in home technology and design features, the only one of its kind in the South West.
The showroom, which opens next month (November), will house a range of smart home technology, lighting and control systems as well as a Dolby Atmos cinema so customers can test out the technology before they buy.
