rediconOUR TEAM

All of the team at DAVD have a common passion for Technology. We are surrounded by experts in their fields, and continually draw and pool knowledge to deliver the optimum result. Our drive is provided by our common goal to present our Clients with an engineered solution that meets their required scope, vision and budget. This is achieved by not only performing the design stages but by managing the delivery by suitable specialist contractors.

Our team is publicly represented by 3 senior personnel:

David Shaw – Director

davidshawDavid Shaw, has always been passionately involved with audio visual and technology.

As early as Primary School, he was responsible for its sound system, and in later years, became the technology administrator (before the term even existed) for the computer laboratories.

This interest was formalised through tertiary studies in both Electrical & Computer Systems Engineering with extra study in cross faculty subjects including project management, adult training and communications.

After graduation, he worked in challenging industrial, medical and military engineering projects, where he honed his exacting problem solving skills.

This evolved to Audio Visual, Communications and Technology Engineering roles incorporating management of delivery teams, being a combination of infrastructure installers, technicians, commissioning engineers and automation programmers.

DAVD Consulting Engineers was founded in 2000 to address the need for specialist design consultants who identified with their clients’ needs, becoming the conduit between the lay client and the ultra-technical contractor.

In this independent role, David has the freedom to be product agnostic. He occupies the perfect position from which to choose the correct product and connectivity combinations to provide an optimum solution for every client. David’s strength is providing the latest integrated solutions and meeting each of his clients’ requirements with the most up to date “proven technologies”.

His understanding of the contracting industry means that the released documentation imparts his clients’ requirements precisely, so contractors make a fair profit on their submission, with no need to exaggerate their offerings to factor risk of misinterpretation of the consultant brief. Most of David’s projects have been completed variation free.
