About Clever Association
Award winning technology consultancy, advising, designing and implementing Audio-Visual, Lighting Control and Integrated solutions across the UK and beyond.
Established in 2003, with presence in Harrogate and London, we have a proven track record for design-led technology for luxury hotels, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, offices, meeting spaces, retail and leisure environments as well as managing private homes and family estates nationwide. However big or small your project, quality of service and the calibre of products selected will not be compromised.
Whilst we love promoting the work we do; discretion is key to many of our clients and at the core of our business.
We build long standing relationships with the businesses and individuals with whom we work, continuing to maintain, support and upgrade their systems throughout the years. Your trust in our team is a vital part of that process, which is why our team members are carefully selected to ensure that they fit the Clever Association mould.
The Clever Association team is made up of highly qualified designers, installers and project managers, each with individual specialist skills. Every detail and aspect of your project will be considered and every member of our team is conscientious and passionate about what they do. They pride themselves on delivering the professional and efficient service on which our reputation is built.
We invest a great deal of time developing the expertise of our team, with engineers attending regular in-depth training courses on the installation and function of cutting-edge technology. This ensures they are always at the top of their game and consistently delivering the highest level of customer satisfaction.
Hospitality: you can visit a number of our completed projects to get a feel for what we’ve created in some of the best hotels in the UK, including most recently the prestigious Grantley Hall. Please contact us and we can arrange for a guided tour of the most relevant projects to demonstrate hotel, bar and restaurant audio visual technology at its best.
Offices: For examples of office technology within a working environment, our purpose-built offices located just outside Harrogate showcase how technology solutions can be integrated. We’re able to demonstrate Lutron Quantum lighting control systems, alongside Lutron window treatments, video conferencing and Crestron control.
Homes: Home technology is also featured within our Harrogate showroom, including Lutron HomeWorks QS and Ra2 lighting control, automated blinds, multiroom audio and hi-fi, access control and overall Crestron control integration, but we also have system components that we can bring to you and demonstrate.
If you have specific audio-visual technology requirements then we can arrange working samples from a multitude of manufacturers, allowing you to make the right decisions for your project.
We strongly value our key alliances with professionals including Architects, Consultants, Developers, Interior Designers and Contractors.
We are an active member of the CEDIA (Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association) CPD programme and we conduct RIBA-approved training sessions for Architects, Interior Designers and various professional bodies.
Architects, Developers and Mechanical and Electrical Consultants
At the heart of our offering, we consult with Architects, Builders and M&E Consultants early on in the design process, to help with planning a project. We then overlay our technology design onto the building plans to enable the Architect/Developer to determine the impact of technology on the building and space, the infrastructure and the running costs. Investing in this technology upfront, significantly saves money longer term and is more environmentally friendly.
Many of our projects are listed buildings and our sympathetic and keen eye for detail are key to working on such prestigious projects, bringing the technology and future into the property, whilst maintaining and respecting the original features.
When working with a client on the interior fitout specification, Interior Designers are often faced with the dilemma of how to integrate technology into a space without it compromising the aesthetics. We understand and are sympathetic to their vision and can provide solutions for all scenarios by hiding and disguising technology within furniture or the fabric of the building.
Not all projects are new build or modern in design, in fact the majority of our projects involve beautiful old buildings requiring modern technology, which needs to be integrated in such a way that it blends in within the traditional environment. All of this is possible to achieve, and we can illustrate this with many clever, often ingenious examples.
At Clever Association, we use nothing but high-quality hardware, across the board. We invest a lot of time developing close working relationships with our partners, with new products undergoing extensive in-house testing before being accepted as a viable option. As a result, these partners trust Clever Association fully to represent them and their products in a professional manner. Being a key account, and enjoying close relationships with these manufacturers, we are the envy of most installers and can ensure that we are manufacture-trained to the highest of standards.
