About Us


With over 50 years of combined experience, AV Design Consultants has built a reputation for quality, innovation, and creative electronic infrastructure covering a wide range of diverse applications including university facilities, new homes, alterations, and additions to existing homes/buildings, apartment buildings/MDU, restaurants, and outdoor living areas.

It is never a one man show, however. A team of enthusiastic, young system engineers with fresh, innovative ideas has been carefully nurtured to maturity. Our 30 years in practice make possible the teamwork which sees innovative, high quality, award winning, inspiring projects built to the highest of standards. The team includes the best technicians, programmers, and design engineers who blend their ideas and those of the client into a coherent whole.

Working from our own premises in Northwest Arkansas, AV Design Consultants is a very tight knit team with common beliefs and goals in efficiently building functional, seamless, and well-implemented systems. The results of our commitment to design excellence are reflected in numerous publications and awards. The team would not have been successful without the fortune of working with the most stimulating and interesting clients one can find in NWA — clients that have been successful in their own fields by virtue of their special talents and have requested the same from their electronic systems architects. The client spread is broad and goes from Little Rock, AR to Bella Vista and over to nearby states like Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, and Missouri.

AV Design Consultants has found that the best projects result from supervision by electronic architects from beginning to end, and our clients' usual comment is "that was much easier than I thought."

We look forward to our journey with you.
