Providing design and bid specifications occurs when funding sources require competitive bids from various dealers before any project can be started.

The PNTA staff's expert knowledge and 35 plus years of experience has taught us to listen to your needs and translate that to a bill of materials that will reflect cutting edge equipment and recommendations that reflect your specific needs and ultimately the necessary bill of materials (aka "the BOM or shopping list") ready for submittal purposes. This element is vital so that dealers and distributors can consistently bid on the same equipment.

Also vital is pre-installation and after-sale service, another aspect of due diligence and thoroughness that our past customers will attest to.

We are watchful for potential problems that might arise along the way - before they happen. PNTA has a long history of repeat business from clients who appreciate our understanding of both their needs and the risks they face.

Design/Build projects require no formal bid process and in most cases allow us to waive our consultation fee. We’re engaged to walk you through the process from start to finish. Regular job site visits by our project managers and a close working relationship with all involved during the prep, build and training phases insures a solid installation. With our staff being drawn from the entertainment industry, we are driven to make each and every customer experience the best.
