Business Relocation Consulting
Here are some of the critical items
our Technology Consultants can help you with. These are typical services we
provide on your Relocation Project. Just a snapshot of why companies rely
on us to get the job done right the first time. If your looking for the best
team - look no further - were the ones the experts count on. Call us when
you need a Project Fire Fighter who can get things under control, or when want to
get things rolling smoothly from the start of the Project.
I. Scope of Project
The project includes but is not limited to
the design of open/closed office space, classrooms, lab space, public spaces, presentation/exhibition
space, conference rooms, server room, and break-out spaces.
This needs to be verified with master schedule
- Start Date: Jan 1, 2003
- Complete Date: June 30, 2003
III. Technology and Base Building
The ultimate design should take into consideration
the followings items:
Flexibility to adapt to changing tenant
needs and usage patterns.
Capacity to serve tenants needs, particularly
the change of user office automation requirements.
Efficiency for after-hours usage.
Tenant energy management controls and interfaces
to base building systems.
Base building capacity (load and circuits)
provided in distribution system.
Power quality and reliability issues.
Lighting for a VDT sensitive environment.
Effective lighting control.
Specialized program needs such as UPS and
stand-by power if required.
Technology/voice/data systems as to how
they enhance the day to day operation of the tenantís space.
IV. Areas of Services
- The design will be based on the interior design
drawings prepared by The Design Team and approved by senior staff.
- Working with your staff, our Consultant will on their own or in conjunction
with a vendor develop engineering designs for technology systems that will be
issued to a single contractor, responsible for the implementation of work.
- Consultant will indicate provision for empty conduit and appropriate power
connections for specialized tenant equipment that may in some cases be designed
and located by others. This includes equipment related to telephone, data
network, paging, security, and audio/visual systems.
Based on the information gathered during interviews
and meetings specifically relating to infrastructure and cabling, together with
information gathered from user interviews and consultant team analysis of voice/data
requirements, prepare and issue a "Design Guidelines for the Technology Infrastructure",
report which will include:
Deliverables: 4 weeks prior to end of
A summary of communications infrastructure
requirements, including review of all communications planning, potential pathways,
and location and size of main and intermediate distribution frames.
Recommendations for pathways between
floors, allowing cabling between the spaces to maintain network connectivity.
Recommendations for the base building
and tenant improvements will cover the sizing, location and fit-out of computer
rooms, telecommunications closets, and the required interconnecting pathways.
Structural loading information will also need to be provided at this stage.
Deliverables: By the end of TI Schematics
- Schematic Drawings, as necessary to illustrate cabling pathways and other
base building design issues described above.
- Preliminary technology budget estimates.
- Recommendations for a signal grounding system.
- Criteria for a telecommunications infrastructure administration and documentation
- Identification of outstanding design issues including proposed resolutions
and potential scheduling impacts.
- Meet with your staff and The Design Team designated representatives to review
report and revise as needed.
- Present the Design Guidelines for the Technology/ Communication Infrastructure
to the Design Team
Deliverables: TI Design Development
Meet with appropriate your staff representatives
and the Design Team to develop a facility plan and other infrastructure documentation,
primarily in the form of drawings, required to support among other items technology/voice
data/LAN systems. The information will include:
Floor plan drawings showing but not
limited to: communications facility equipment rooms, computer centers, and communications
closets.) these drawings will provide The Design Team with input for architectural
design , including: required clearances, conduit sleeve, plywood backboard,
and other special telecommunications systems requirements.
Communication Room reflected ceiling
and base electrical drawings showing required lighting layout, cable ladder, empty
conduit, raceways, power outlets, grounding bus-bars, etc. for voice data/LAN
systems equipment. These drawings will be used by the electrical engineer
for transfer to the electrical construction documents.
Deliverables: TI Construction Drawings:
Final development of all drawings listed above
and Infrastructure design drawings for the telecommunications distribution system.
These typically include:
Building Communications Isometric
Building Riser Diagram
Telecommunications Riser Closet Floor
Plan, Electrical & Reflected Ceiling Plan
Typical Horizontal Distribution Plan
2.1 Other input information drawings such
Telecommunications Closet Details
Computer Room Details
Telecommunications Systems Risers/Backbone
Telecommunications details, including
main distribution frame (MDF) and intermediate distribution frame (IDF), termination
block assignments and mounting, outlet configurations, and station cable distribution
Telecommunications outlet plan based
on the architectural power and communications plans.
Provide review and comment on the electrical
contract drawings after inclusion of technology input to ensure complete and accurate
transfer of information. Define contract drawings to fully incorporate technology/
data/telecommunications infrastructure designs. Requirements for telecommunications
systems pathways (conduits, sleeves, cable tray, etc.) will be coordinated with
team engineers for inclusion in the electrical construction package.
Transmit all technical design drawing
documentation (AutoCAD files) to The Design Team.
2.2 Cabling Systems Design
Prepare a cable specification that will be
let for competitive bid. This specification will provide comprehensive information
relative to cable distribution, typical
workstation terminations, closet requirements, sizing and capacity, functionality,
Technical installation methodology
will be specified, as will requirements for training and the preparation of any
special or non-standard systems documentation.
Prepare telecommunications cabling
distribution plans identifying all outlet locations.
Prepare all necessary details, plans
Prepare telecommunications cable terminations
Meet with Design Team representatives
to review the RFP and discuss possible cable vendors.
Review and analyze bid submissions
and assist Construction Manager in identifying the successful cable vendor.
2.3 Cabling Systems Implementation
Consultant shall perform the following
construction administration services to include:
Attend construction and
coordination meetings to address telecommunications issues.
Monitor cable installation
for all riser and lateral cables.
Develop change order procedures.
and facility work and assist in reviewing and negotiating, as required, any change
orders or vendor claims for extras related to the telecommunications cabling work.
Monitor acceptance testing
and review contractors test and acceptance reports, field change orders and other
Prepare and issue Punch
The standard tender documents
prepared by Vendor will require the contractors to furnish as-built documentation
(including drawings, schedules and specifications) of the work installed under
Provide Final Acceptance
Letters, based on review and approval of as-built documents. The Acceptance
Letter will state warranties and performance assurances by various vendors stating
responsibilities of each party.
