KNX UK is delighted to announce its 2022 KNX UK Award Winners:
2022 KNX UK Award Winner – KNX Champion – Graham Oliver
JUNG UK director Graham Oliver has been voted KNX UK Champion for 2022.
Nominated by members, the KNX UK Association Champion is the person who has gone the extra mile in promoting the benefits of manufacturer-independent KNX smart home and building control. This in turn enables more end-users to benefit from the freedom that comes with KNX futureproof and flexible control, and helps forward thinking systems integrators to win new business and flex their creative muscles, as evidenced by the winning projects in the annual KNX UK Awards.
Graham has been heading JUNG UK operations since 2017, and has been an active member of the KNX UK Association throughout. He is generous with his time, sitting on both the KNX UK board and several of its working groups.
His main focus is on introducing M&E contractors, developers, architects and lighting designers to the potential offered by integrated building control, and demonstrating the importance of choosing the right approach early in a project. To that end he and his team are always happy to host visitors at the JUNG London showroom in the heart of Clerkenwell to show them how collaboration between controls manufacturers works in action.
An MCC member, Graham is often seen at Lords. Squeezing the most out of every day, he is also a fixed wing and helicopter pilot, and a Rugby Union and Formula 1 enthusiast.
Graham and his team are a true asset to the KNX UK Association and we are delighted to name him our 2022 Champion.
2022 KNX UK Award Winner – Commercial Project of the Year – Mosaic Liverpool Street
KNX was selected for this 8 story office block to replace an existing BMS. The building was under going massive renovation throughout. KNX was selected as it was flexible enough to grow and change as each floor developed. The client was secure in the knowledge that the project could increase in size and scope as different floors were developed for different occupiers. Even as things change over time they have a system which can always be added to and adapted and will not become obsolete. Uncommon is unique in the way they will custom partition a floor depending on the occupiers need. For example some floors were kept at a base build level for months before being split into different offices/meeting rooms required by the company occupying them. The spaces change depending on the users need. One area which might have been 3 offices for one company can be changed to one large open space when the next lease is taken out. KNX allowed the splitting of services to change as the space changed.
