Real Estate Technology - Facility and Technology Infrastructure Audit
Relocating or upgrading your facility provides an opportunity to enhance your facility design resulting in a more productive workplace. Proper design for facility and infrastructure systems prevents reactive problems, reduces support costs and enhances system "up time". Few CEO and CFO's are ever told the facts - when was the last time you risk your job because someone caused a problem - the technician cut the wrong cable, the documentation was out of date, the server room overheated and we lost the database server.
A well kept secret in the technology arena is that over 50 % of technology problems can be traced to improper facility design and maintenance. In part, the IT department does not want to go back to facility and tell then they did not account for the requirements in the initial plan. With today's high density equipment, although rack space can be consolidated, significant additional power and cooling must be planned and provided for the technology spaces your company. Failure to do so can result in costly and time consuming problems. Network and equipment failures often are caused by overheated communications rooms, improper venting and cooling and other facility related problems.
Thatís why relocating or renovating your offices provides the perfect opportunity to enhance systems--electrical, signal cabling, HVAC (heating, ventilating and air conditioning), space design, etc.--to improve your technology performance, solve or prevent problems, and create a more efficient, productive workplace. But every step must be planned, managed, and executed properly. Let us help you insure a well design and properly implemented environment to properly maintain the enormous investment your company has made in its technology and telecommunications equipment.

Thorough analysis of your businesses short and long-term requirements is the first step in any relocation. This allows for proper allocation of space for the new location compared to existing space.
Review of growth factors for personnel, technologies, and office systems is essential.
Proper analysis prevents the need for change orders which cause lost time, increased construction costs, delays in occupancy, disruption to client services, damage to new space, opportunities for theft, and loss of controlled coordination.
We work closely with architects to ensure that technology specifications and drawing design is accurate and appropriate. We verify and compare your requirements to the drawings (prints). The drawings can be corrected, approved, and submitted to contractors for bid -- eliminating needless changes later. Contractor bids are then evaluated and contractor selections made.

Schedules are established for all work. Project meetings are attended as needed to ensure the space is constructed as designed.
As work is completed, our technical specialists will inspect all work and target items needing correction prior to occupancy. A final inspection will also be conducted, along with a thorough review of all documentation.
