Coordination

We are experienced in coordinating with architects, interior designers, electrical contractors, general contractors, interior finishing specialists and HVAC engineers. In the case of dedicated rooms the coordinated efforts of all these people is not only desirable but essential.


Software Based Control Systems

We have experience with the design and installation of user-friendly, touch - screen operated control systems to give integrated control of various systems. We do our programming in house and therefore are accountable to our client for the final results. Further, we can make changes at the client’s discretion at any time. This flexibility to change the base control system can be performed via a remote modem to modem link or on-site service.


How We Work

Our work process is very much like that of any consulting firm, in that we meet clients or their representatives initially to acquire an overview of their objectives and wish list.  Once we have enough information, we will provide a detailed proposal and equipment specification.  This proposal will be reviewed with the appropriate personnel to determine how well we have understood the project scope.  Often the proposal will be revised to fine tune it to meet the client’s preferences.

Project Documentation

Our services include a professional level of project documentation.  According to the particular project, this may include wiring diagrams, plan layouts for locations of devices & controls, schedules for lighting controls, system riser diagrams, equipment dimensions, lists, etc.

Our consultants have been engaged in several long distance projects, including work in the Caribbean, Saudi Arabia  and Canada.  We are accustomed to the project demands and documentation necessary to meet the requirements of such projects successfully.


Characteristics of a Good Control System


Flexibility
:
The client may have as many or as few locations of touch - screen control as they wish.  It is also possible to provide these in a wireless or hardwired format or software that is running on a personal computer;


Individuality
:
 Each installation is programmed differently, according to the preferences and requirements of the client.  We create the screen “layouts” in software and then customize them to individual requirements.  The clients have the freedom to request changes as their needs change;

Open Architecture: The actual control system hardware is specified to suit the particular application.  Control “cards” can be added or subtracted according to what is to be controlled.


General Considerations

  • Surround sound
  • Room layout
  • Equipment concealment
  • Lighting plan
  • Acoustical considerations
  • Ambient light
  • Electrical requirements
  • Sightlines
