In short; to avoid costly mistakes, get the system your company needs and ultimately to save your company money. Our industry experience, and expertise, will assist you in achieving your mission of getting what you want for a fair price.
Having been exposed to a plethora of bad, or lack of, specifications and designs we know how very important it is to have a detailed specification and design for your project. A good specification and design will virtually eliminate the unknowns for the installation contractor and will promote the contractor to bid only the labor, materials, equipment, etc. required to complete your project the way you intend.
In addition, the occurrence of change orders is reduced significantly, due to the fact both parties (you and your contractor/s) know exactly what is required in writing. The level of detail provided, via a good design package, will promote an “apples to apples” comparison for you to utilize during the choosing of a contractor, thus keeping your project’s cost to a minimum. We feel that our experience gives us a perspective shared by few of our peers.
We employee multiple designers who are registered with BICSI (Building Industry Consulting Service International) as RCDDs (Registered Communications Distribution Designers) and who are fluid in AutoCAD computer aided drafting. Every RCDD professional has passed an extensive examination on telecommunications distribution design and thus is capable of designing your low voltage technology system/s per common codes, standards, and regulations (e.g. ANSI/TIA/EIA, ISO/IEC, NFPA, NEC, etc.). RCDD registration renewal is required every three years and requires continuing education credits, thus by utilizing an RCDD you are guaranteed to have a designer with knowledge of the latest “cutting edge” technology.

RFP is an acronym for Request for Pricing. Even the best drawings aren’t enough to complete a design package. A complete design package must include an RFP.
