RIBA & BIID Accredited CPD Courses

Designing Home Cinemas and Media Rooms

Brand New for 2019!

SONA is now offering the CEDIA RIBA Accredited CPD Course – Designing Home Cinema & Media Rooms

As an award-winning CEDIA member we can deliver this brand new RIBA accredited course, Designing Home Cinema & Media Rooms. Only a select few technology professionals are able to deliver this course, and our Design and Technical Director, Simon Fulstow, is one of them, with over 20 years in this area of expertise.

Digital entertainment plays a huge part in the modern lifestyle and is something that can be truly astounding when experienced in the correct environment. Dedicated and convertible entertainment spaces need careful thought and professional design to perform well, and ultimately wow the homeowner. Discover the principles of how to design and implement these entertainment spaces.

This CPD will help you to understand the following topics:

– Understand the difference between a home cinema and a media room and the basic vocabulary used
– Understand how to raise awareness of home cinemas and media rooms, how to help clients choose and specify rooms and raise the standard of the rooms
– Understand all the components that make a good home cinema room and media room
– Understand the design principles of sound and vision
– Understand how to work with a system designer and look at requirements

Simon is hugely passionate about home cinemas and recently travelled to Amsterdam to enhance his knowledge even further, by training personally with Anthony Grimani.  Anthony Grimani invented some of the most popular used surround sound formats for Dolby and worked for LucasFilm hand in hand with George Lucas himself to invent the revolutionary Surround EX 6.1 channel audio format pioneered in Star Wars, the Phantom Menace.

Designing Future Ready Homes

SONA work with Architects, Developers and Interior Designers to help homeowners get the most from their living environment. Not too long ago a telephone point in the entrance hallway and a TV socket in the living room were about all people expected.  Now clients expect to be able to have and install any electronic device at any point, in any place and expect it to work using WiFi.  They expect to be able to add technology in, update it, use it to make their life easier (one touch control and automation), their home prettier (lighting), more entertaining (audio, video, gaming, streaming) and to help them connect wherever they are (WiFi, streaming). They also expect to be able to fully use their home to enable to them to disconnect from the outer world and unwind, relax and reconnect – they expect their home to be a haven from the intensity of daily life.   So how do you integrate these seemingly opposing things when designing a luxury home for clients with exceedingly high expectations?

This course offers the opportunity to discover how to integrate home technologies for now and the future. It will show you what is possible, describe some alternatives and explain how to incorporate the various systems without detracting from you design and plans.

You’ll have a good grasp of modern best practice for low-voltage systems in the home and feel more confident specifying these systems. Most importantly you’ll know who to ask if you need help in a particular area.

This RIBA Accredited CPD will explore the advantages of working with a seasoned expert integrator like SONA and explore the solutions available.
