USL Audio Visual in Ringmer, East Sussex for projectors/screens; Cavendish Communications, Newhaven, East Sussex for cabling.
Contact Solutions AV - Audio Visual Installations Specialists and Cavendish Communications - Business Communications for Sussex and the South East respectively
No idea where you actually are though, so might not be of any use.

Thanks for the recommendations
I will contact "solutionsav" for a quote
However I have had problems with Cavendish Communications before not supplying test results or physical topology diagrams. they also left points dead and left us to the last week of the holidays before me contacting them when they were going to come in.
Where are you in sussex?

You could have a go yourself. Combined team building with Caretaker maybe?

I think there is some stupid Health and safety thing that states you need insurance if your working over a Meter and a half otherwise I would do the projectors
However we have done loads of smart-boards ourselves, which is really easy. I think we had a quote for £500 installation fee for a smart-board which is crazy for how easy it is!!

I've used Multimedia Installations Ltd based in Leeds, but they do work over the whole country. His cabling and projector installs have always been excellent and good value for money.

We use Safe Control in Louth, Lincolnshire, very reliable and we have a good working relationship with the bloke that owns it, he even comes in and gets his hands dirty some times. They do work all over the country. Worth a shout.

Have to say I would urge people to be careful with IDN. They were astonishingly cheap when I first started using them, far cheaper than anyone else could offer, but their prices crept up over time without me checking the prices, until one day I realised they'd been much more expensive than the competition for some time. It was early in my career when I was caught by it and after kicking myself I've been much more careful checking prices since.

we have to get three quotes for everything we order these days. The problem Ive found is that you get what you pay for!!!!!!!! we have had a company called astec computing who did a lot of work for us however one cabinet nearly fell off the wall, had cat5e installed over 100m and smart-boards installed at angels. however when we started using them they were good but over time the work became worse.
