Success Story:

Principal owners of VWMason, Vernon Mason, and Daryl Yakielashek, have worked together as designers, integrators, owners’ representatives, and technology consultants for 30 years. Over the years, they have completed hundreds of projects across Canada and developed a diverse set of skills along the way. Before becoming VWMason, Vernon and Daryl spent their early years working together as designers, installers, and project managers on hundreds of audio, video, and lighting projects. This early success ultimately led to key roles in the Facilities & Systems Design team for Aquila Productions (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Oilers Entertainment Group, OEG). The culmination of this experience was the design and operation of the numerous audio-visual, lighting, and broadcast systems at Rogers Place Arena.

Upon the successful completion of Rogers Place, Vernon and Daryl opened VWMason – and their story became Our Story. Since opening at the beginning of 2019, the VWMason team continues to carry on the legacy built over the past 30 years of creating designs that are inspired and delivering on time and on-budget projects with focus and technical excellence. In our first years of operating, we have completed over 20 projects, including museums, arenas, schools, recreation centres, convention centres, and airports. In 2020, we were honored to be chosen as the audio-visual & broadcast consultant for the Calgary Event Centre, the new home of the Calgary Flames Hockey Club.

We have had the pleasure of working with Vernon and the group at VWMason on numerous projects over the last 12 years. As an organization have tried to push the boundaries of arena digital technology in the junior hockey world, and each project has exceeded our expectations

I have worked closely with Vernon Mason on many projects over the past 20 years. What impresses me the most is that Vernon places the same level of importance on forging a long-term relationship with the client as he does in helping the client navigate the world of technology.

The VWMason team is exceptional; they have set the bar. At every stage, they took the time to understand and navigate the needs and constraints of the many stakeholders on our project. They rose to the challenge and maintained an unwavering focus from design through to completion.
