About the Company

Our History


After a combined professional career of over 20 years in the home automation industry, Andrew and Tom co-established Element 29 in 2012 (see below). Having spent many years designing, specifying, managing, installing, programming and commissioning hundreds of systems for a large residential installer, Andrew and Tom decided to use the wealth of knowledge and experience they had gained to deliver quality, bespoke, innovative solutions for their own clients.

From humble beginnings, working from Andrew’s spare room on simple one room home cinema systems, Element 29 has grown steadily over the past 4 years by way of its high quality work and growing reputation. It has a core team of five working from its south London office, designing and installing systems in large high end residential properties throughout the UK and Europe.

You have also assisted on the removal , reinstatement and upgrading another clients property, the client a prominent CEO was very impressed with your knowledge, straight talking and recommendations.

Element 29 are currently working with us on two large basement projects in Kingswood and Walton, both damaged by water ingress during the floods. The service levels again have been great, with great care taken to enable the clients to retain the coms rooms and services, and finding a solution to work around construction restraints.

Technical and high end market knowledge is great and very happy to help. All round good egg, and I am  happy to recommend to future potential clients.

Richard Wayland
Director, Landway Construction

We recently looked to upgrade the entertainment and computer systems in our home. We are novices in this area so called Tom at Element 29 for advice and guidance.

Given the cabling constraints within our home, Element 29 still managed to deliver a fully integrated, multi room audio and video system in the all areas we required, without compromising quality of performance or functionality. They also managed to realise this alongside our requirement for fast and reliable internet connectivity throughout our home, allowing our family to efficiently stream online content, on multiple systems, at any one time.

We were delighted with all aspects of their work and would happily recommend them to others in the same position as ourselves.

We have worked with Andrew Perkins and the Element 29 team for a number of years and on a number of our projects including super high end residential, office fit out and bespoke commercial projects. They are a pleasure to work with and always thorough and detailed in their approach. We have always found them to be extremely flexible, sometimes working to extremely tight timeframes, and always willing to help. Their expertise in AV design and delivery is exceptional and we have no hesitation in recommending them.

Daniel Brown
Director - Brockton Capital

Thanks for the works you have carried out for us on the prestigious London property.

We believe your ability to see the process through from design to completion and to the high standards required was faultless!

PIP would also have no doubt in using Element 29 again for large scale high end residential builds or similar.

Billy Craven
Project Manager - PIP electrical

As part of a complete house refurbishment, we engaged Andrew and the team to plan and execute the full audio, visual and data elements. All three were really important characteristics of our ‘new’ house and something we were desperate to get right. From the outset, Andrew helped us get the right balance between the specification and our budget, and devised a plan that sat superbly within the wider house plans. As always, I’d imagine, on projects of this size and complexity deadlines and milestones moved and, to the credit of everyone at Element29, they remained flexible, helpful, patient, understanding and within budget! The end result is outstanding, and we are so grateful to the whole team for completing the jigsaw so brilliantly. Thoroughly recommend.

It is with great pleasure that I write to endorse the amazing services of Element 29.

Tom recently assisted a client of mine with an audio/visual problem in his home. The reason why this event is so extraordinary is because of both the patience Tom displayed in helping my client sort out the problem, as well as the additional efforts he took to make my client’s life easier.

Tom visited my client’s residence on several occasions, making sure that the system worked properly. He also agreed to spend time helping my client and his wife sort out their other electronic devices. My client is 77, and this offer and the patience Tom has demonstrated amazed him, and my client continues to rave about the service he has received.

Element 29 offer imaginative, expert and practical advice, explained in language comprehensible to a layman. They have completely transformed my home – and all the while, with smiles on their faces. Their technical expertise is top notch, whilst service levels have been outstanding.

Gary Couch
Private home owner

Element 29 designed an infrastructure for us that gave us the flexibility to distribute and control our AV equipment throughout our home, they liaised and coordinated with the construction team to ensure cabling was installed as per their design and when it came to the final stages of the installation the team on site were knowledgeable, professional, conscientious, respectful, and polite. I would highly recommend them.

Christian Hinchliffe
Private home owner

I don’t think it is possible to overstate the delight that we have experienced dealing with “Element 29” – from answering the most basic of questions to installing a sophisticated AV system with equal patience and good humour. I don’t think we were expecting the level of service delivery that you provide, the quality of which remains long after the experience.
