David Febbraio is the owner and chief operator of Structured Home Solutions, LLC. Dave became interested in electronics as a young kid and by the age of 14 he was installing car stereos into his older brother’s friend’s cars. As he became older his love for music, clear sound and lots of bass became evident.
His own cars had customized stereo systems with exceptional sound–the louder the better. He had developed a solid knowledge base on speakers, sound clarity and he was building his own speaker boxes to be installed in cars. As an adult he continued to have a love for electronics and technology and soon began implementing his knowledge in his own home.
David has a degree in Criminal Justice and at the age of 22 his career path led him into a position as a Connecticut State Trooper. He enjoyed this career for 9 years until he was injured on the job in an altercation with an unstable man. Doctors would not approve his return to the road as a State Trooper, due to his injuries, and he retired after 9 years.
David worked part time for a small electronics company that did residential and commercial work. They installed structured wire bundles, cameras, home theaters, security systems and some lighting control. He gained excellent knowledge and when that company dissolved, to move onto bigger prospects, David decided to open his own company. David went on to become CEDIA certified as a level 1 installer, gained his Fire and Burglar Alarm license and reached the highest level in training certification in Lutron’s Radio Ra II products. He also went on to complete certification programs with many manufacturers and he is an NTS certified installer. After completing three rounds of NTS certification David was asked to become an instructor. He declined the position, however, to focus his attention on SHS.
David formed Structured Home Solutions, LLC in 2002 and became incorporated in 2004. Dave is the main “go to guy” on all projects. He is involved in every project each step of the way. He meets with each client for system design, he is always available for his client’s questions and he directs the crew to get each project completed. SHS works hard to meet all client needs and deliver an exceptional product. The company has grown over the years and have successfully provided clients with whole house systems that are tailored to individual clients. SHS is proud to be a company that strives for customer satisfaction and works closely with all clients to ensure all of their needs have been met.
