Gira, a full-range supplier of intelligent system solutions for building management, has been recognised at this year’s Smart Building Awards, winning Best Multi Dwelling Unit in collaboration with system integrator, Marquee Home Limited.
Established in 2018, the Smart Building Awards aim to deliver the most representative, inclusive and up-to-date initiative in the AV/Install world, maintaining the recognised brand and seal of industry approval for years to come.
A panel of independent judges evaluated the nominees and named Gira/Marquee Home the winners of Best Multi Dwelling Unit category, for the luxurious Essoldo House project in London, where Gira products were specified.
Essoldo House is part of a residential and retail prime location in Kings Road, Chelsea and consists of 11 apartments. Behind the scenes, a user-friendly Gira KNX system works in tandem with the Gira X1 mini server and the Gira S1, remote access module to ensure equally smooth and secure networking and control wherever the homeowner is. The switches and socket outlets of the Gira E2 design line in stainless steel also match the high-quality elegance of the interior in a special building – truly London’s finest – and all Gira products were installed by specialist system integrator Marquee Home Limited, part of the Gira System Integrator Partner Program.
Gira representatives, Hüseyin Musalar, Regional & Smart Sales Manager and Ash Smith, Controls Manager at Wandsworth Electricals – the home of Gira in the UK – received the award on behalf of Gira with Paul Endersby, Managing Director at Marquee Homes also in attendance.
