A Harrogate-based technology firm has won global recognition for one of its projects.

Clever Association is the first company in the UK to win the esteemed award of 'Project of the Year' at the 2017 Lutron Excellence Awards in San Diego.

For more than 14 years, it has been creating bespoke entertainment, integration and IT solutions for homes and businesses across the country.

The award was presented by the world's leading lighting control manufacturer and industry giant, Lutron, which is based in California.

Clever Association's project involved incorporating many bespoke solutions into a modern, eco-friendly family home to allow the owners to see exactly how well their home is performing at any given time, whilst being simple to use.

The company ensured that every room would be beautifully illuminated in a way which made the space comfortable, relaxing and ultimately enjoyable, without any technology compromising room aesthetics or architectural features.

This included Lutron wall keypads for controlling lighting in all the rooms, or via an iPad or iPhone, and automated blinds which can also react to ambient light.

Richard Jones, Managing Director of Clever Association, said: "It is a real honour to have won the Lutron international 'Project of the Year'. It is a real achievement to have competed against companies from around the world and be recognised as one of the best.

"I am really proud of our team who put a lot of hard work into all aspects of this project, it has certainly paid off."

Clever Association has also won 'Best Home Cinema' and 'Best Special Project' trophies, as well as being highly commended in the 'Best Innovative Solution' category, at the 2017 CEDIA Awards which were held at Warner Bros. Studio.

Richard added: "Projects shortlisted for CEDIA Awards are always carried out to the highest of standards. Having our projects recognised against such tough competition is a real honour. The whole team are very proud of our achievement.

"CEDIA quite rightly set the standards high within our industry and we know that only projects demonstrating technical excellence in all aspects of design, installation and commissioning will take the top spot in any category."
