"I enjoy addressing all kinds of AV design challenges, from theater renovations to interior fit-outs in new buildings. Each project is unique.”
Ben Thirakul is an audiovisual systems designer with 10 years of experience planning and designing systems for educational facilities, courthouses, mixed-use commercial buildings, museums, casinos, athletic facilities, and community and performing arts centers.
His responsibilities include project management and documentation including specifications, construction drawing review, and preparation of detailed drawings and schematics using AutoCAD and Revit. Ben also addresses client requests for information (RFIs) and equipment commissioning once a project is completed.
ON WINNING AND LOSING
Ben’s favorite quote is from the musician Toh Kay of Streetlight Manifesto: “The scars I get, they will just collect, insuring that I won’t forget. Remind me of the battles that I’ve lost and that I’ve won.”
