MULTI-TENANT POWERHOUSE FINDS A/V AND IT SOLUTIONS UNDER ONE ROOF
It was the ultimate college tour. In 2004, a small group of investors visited college towns across the country to study the local housing stock. What they learned would lead to the formation of CA Ventures, a real estate investment management company whose portfolio of properties is now valued at over $15 billion.
Their model was simple. The company acquired pedestrian-oriented, campus-adjacent apartment buildings and brought them in line with the needs of today's students and the communities in which they live and learn.
Naturally, having modern A/V and IT systems was a must. After doing their homework, CA Ventures assigned the project to Encompass Connect, a partner who could design, install and maintain both.
"Ironically," said Tim Pickett, Encompass Connect CEO, "one of the things that makes us so suited for multi-tenant projects is our experience in the hospitality industry. Both environments call for robust technology that can stand up to the rigors of extended use by multiple users."
And of course there's no heavier user of A/V and IT than college students – one reason Encompass Connect equipped the systems with proven technology from manufacturers such as Martin Audio, Symetrix, and for surveillance cameras, Rhombus Systems. Given the complexity of such a multi-phase, multi-market undertaking, collaboration and communication was critical, which is why Encompass Connect made sure all stakeholders were kept informed from start to finish.
“Simply put, Encompass Connect provided a finished product that just works,” said a CA Ventures representative.
Putting its “college education” to good use, CA Ventures has successfully adapted its model to serve additional multi-tenant market segments such as families and senior citizens – thanks in part to its ongoing partnership with enterprises like Encompass Connect.
