Site Surveys


Getting to know your stakeholders, experiencing your operational culture firsthand is a vital first step. Actually experiencing how things work now is the only logical first step to planning your future environment. Whether it's learning how you conduct a meeting or event, taking pictures of your present systems or simply measuring where the new systems might live, some things are best done onsite.

 

Needs Analysis


The careful deliniation of your operational and functional needs, requirements and future goals is an essential building block to creating a solid Technology Program for your project. Once again, this starts with how things are being done and how you would like them to be done. It does not start with a conversation about what gear to pick. Without clear understanding of needs and goals, there can be no design.


Current System or Design Review


To start the work of defining the nuts and bolts of the system Design Program, an experienced design engineer will review your existing systems to put the project requirements into perspective. If your project is a design from scratch with no predesesors, we will offer examples of current industry designs that match your needs.


If your project is not a new facility or complete renovation, a comprehensive overview of how your existing system is presently operating can be vital in deciding your next steps in maintenance or upgrade. Performing an internal systems analysis can help us advise you on the best path forward. Reviews like these will also establishing which components may need software updates, whether any physical connections need re-terminating, or if present infrastructure may be the issue.  Our technicians, programmers & troubleshooters are all factory-qualified by all the major DSP and equpment manufacturers and are considered by made to be the best in the business.


Project Conceptualization & Program Development


Once all of the information has been gathered we will assemble a project Technology Design Program for review and approval. This Program is a consice, easy to understand document that will be the basis on which more detailed deliverables and the final system configuration will be based. It typically includes:

  • A general discussion about the overall needs, requirements and goals of the technology for the project

  • A discription of each included system

  • An explaination how each system will function

  • A list of major system components in generic terms

  • A discussion of all infrastructure requirements for each system to be shared with the design team

This document is meant for client review and approval. Once the scope in the Program is approved more detailed work would begin.


Budget Development


As a critical adjunct to the Technology Design Program we often provide a good faith budget estimate that details the major equipment and labor cost for the work described in the Program. The budget is based on our best and most current knowledge of equipment & integration at the time.
