BUILDING TECHNOLOGY DESIGN

Our designers ensure the technology of your facility, which truly serves as its central nervous system, appropriately addresses all of your team’s needs. But more importantly, we make sure that technology is — and will remain — completely secure.

We like to start by asking, “What problems are you trying to solve?” By uncovering your unique technology needs, our team can recommend anything from simple, off-the-shelf options to never-before-seen (in some case never-before-conceived-of) concepts for technology integration — and all things in between.
Our group is comprised of technical veterans possessing more than 75 years of combined experience with technical specifications and design. We remain thought leaders, never shying away from opportunities to put technology to use in overcoming obstacles, and are backed by the expertise of a fully integrated firm of architects, engineers, and professionals from dozens of other building-related disciplines.
We are experts in the technology needs of these and many other building types:
