Most Would Walk Away

Bryan Gorog of BCG Concepts calls this homeowner, a well-known producer and concert promoter, a “technology freak.”

“I have a lot of clients that are enthusiastic, but this guy went so far as to test for network continuity,” Gorog says.

“The first thing he showed me was the nightmare phone closet,” Gorog adds. “Most A/V integrators will just walk away from these jobs.”

Gorog allowed the phones and Internet to go down for almost two days. “We took out the partially connected Ethernet (the bandwidth was just crawling),” Gorog says. “We added a patch panel and a back-up battery.”

Gorog says he did $55,000 to $75,000 worth of work at the job.
