Aramark | Philadelphia, PA
Due to a mis-communication, an Acorn CSMV-3 Command Station was installed at the new Aramark corporate office building in the heart of Philadelphia, instead of the digital mixing station specified by the design engineer. Only after the Command Station was operational did the mechanical contractor realize the error. He then called Acorn Controls, hoping to find out that a complete tear out and replacement would not be necessary since he would be absorbing the full cost for making this system meet the design specification. You can only imagine how pleased he was to hear that “Because you installed Acorn’s Command Station, a low-cost upgrade kit and about 1 hour for labor is all that’s required.” In other words, no tear out costs, no new rough-in labor/material costs, no loss for scrapping the existing hardware and no new system cost, not to mention the extra cost of having to do a lot of time-consuming work during off-hours. Obviously, big points were scored with the contractor, engineer and Aramark. This is just the first example of how the potential for every Command Station and SFMMV sold to be upgraded to Acorn BASyC™, at a much lower cost than any alternative option, offers tremendous potential benefits in addition to the many other advantages that comes standard with every BASyC™ system.
