Terra Nova, Inc. Wins Award for Residential AV Integration
PSNI's Ainsley Mahikoa Memorial Awards Honor Best in Class
System Integration Design and Installation

Seattle, WA, September 17, 2012 -- Terra Nova Integrated Systems is pleased to announce the company was honored with an award for best audiovisual project of the year. The Ainsley Mahikoa Memorial Awards were presented by Professional Systems Network International (PSNI), a nationwide network of independent audiovisual and unified communication integrators and service providers. Terra Nova Integrated Systems is a long-time PSNI affiliate.

Terra Nova's winning project was designed and installed for a Palm Desert, CA luxury home. The project included security, lighting, home theater, and extensive motorization as just some of the features of this AV showcase. The project won in the category of residential systems.

Terra Nova's owner, Chris McCanles, accepted the award from PSNI President Mark Gottwig at the PSNI Fall Meeting in Seattle in September.

“It is truly an honor to be recognized by our fellow PSNI affiliates with the Ainsley Mahikoa Memorial Award,” said McCanles. “Our staff did a phenomenal job on this project, which really demonstrated a nice intersection of technology and craftsmanship.”

The Ainsley Mahikoa Memorial Awards will be presented annually and are exclusive to PSNI affiliates.

The awards are named for Ainsley Mahikoa, CTS, who passed away this year. Mahikoa was a loyal and beloved employee of Hawaii-based The Audio Visual Company, a PSNI affiliate, for 15 years, and he was an enthusiastic supporter of PSNI and its programs.
