A reflection on 2022

Avande Christmas message

2022 has been a year of growth for the company. Coming out of Covid (has it really only been a year since restrictions were lifted?) we hit the ground running. As 2022 dawned we were a company with big goals and I’m delighted to say we have smashed them all!

At the start of the year, we had seven live projects in total across all Avande brands, but with the addition of our unique and rapidly growing Avande SELECT proposition, we have seen that total grow exponentially

As we look ahead to 2023, we start the year with 12 live Avande Connect projects, 19 live Avande SELECT projects, 15 additional projects about to commence and a further 42 confirmed projects in the pipeline.

Our team has grown too and is now four times the size it was a year ago, with more recruitment planned. We’ve moved into larger offices and have added four new vans to our fleet.

I am particularly proud to say that during 2022 we became, and remain, smart technology partners to some of the best schemes in the UK. Greenwich Peninsula, by Knight Dragon – the largest regeneration project in Europe – and Kings Cross, by Argent and the Laing O’Rourke delivery team, are most certainly two of my highlights. These companies have shown tremendous faith in us and have placed huge trust in Avande to deliver their smart technology, both with our Day 1 access and environmental controls and with our Day 2 upgrade portal SELECT, giving homeowners the chance to enhance their home automation.2023 is set to be another record year for the business. Personally, I can’t wait!

Merry Christmas and here’s to a prosperous year for you and your families.
