CEAVCO Audio Visual is implementing energy efficiency improvements at its facility in Arvada, Colorado, a suburb of Denver. The improvements include a solar PV system, LED lighting, and a roof upgrade.

CEAVCO is investing in these energy efficiency improvements through the Colorado C-PACE program. The C-PACE program decreases the barriers to entry for commercial solar and enables businesses to access affordable, long-term financing for their projects with no money down. ECO Roof and Solar and Namasté Solar will install the project.

“We’ve been in business for more than 50 years, and while we’re primarily focused on making our clients look good, we knew the time had come to take care of some in-house maintenance issues,” said Matt Emerson, president of CEAVCO Audio Visual. “By installing a new roof, a solar PV system, and energy-efficient lighting, we can modernize our office, lower our energy costs, and reduce our carbon footprint. The Colorado C-PACE program is definitely worth looking into.”

CEAVCO’s sustainability initiatives are projected to reduce energy use at the company’s 33,827-square-foot facility by 94 percent.

CEAVCO Hosts the Rental and Staging Network (RSN) Warehouse Managers Forum

On July 10-11, the Rental and Staging Network (RSN) held its inaugural Warehouse Managers Forum. Warehouse and operations managers from RSN member companies gathered to exchange best practices and tricks of the trade. A total of 21 team members from 11 RSN companies attended.

CEAVCO Audio Visual hosted the forum at its office in Arvada, Colorado. Don Guzauckas, Jr., Vice President of RSN member company HB Live, acted as the facilitator. Topics covered included staffing, training, employee retention, storage and equipment handling, quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) processes, vendor management, and warehouse layouts and workflow.

Says Guzauckas, “The new Warehouse Managers Forum is a fantastic opportunity for warehouse and operations teams at member companies to share industry knowledge and learn from each other. Everyone’s getting a lot out of the energetic, productive conversation at this valuable gathering.”

Each year, RSN holds meetings, training sessions, and forums at member locations in diverse locations throughout the country. The first Warehouse Managers Forum was a great success, and attendees are already starting to plan their next collaborative forum.
