ConTech provides a broad range of creative solutions to Security, Technology and Construction industries. With a primary focus on maximizing infrastructure design efficiency, our team provides the technical expertise to assist our clients upgrade or re-design an existing system; manage the roll-out and deployment of a new system; or simply consult with Capital Projects that requires technical support for new construction or build-out; and move/relocation management.
What we do is simple! We provide the technical expertise that bridges the gap between the A/E Firm, the IT Department and the Security Management Team; and work with the General Contractor to insure that each group’s vision is properly captured during the construction process.
Our services are designed to aid decision-makers with the responsibility for Capital Construction Project Planning as it relates to Technology, Security, Space Planning and Move Management. Our clients entrust us with the responsibility for the end-to-end design of the IT Network; development of technical specifications from the communication outlet to the network closet; connectivity, integration and management of communication cable and wireless; engineering and design for physical security systems; and coordinating systems, furniture and equipment moves.
For almost twenty years we have been on a mission to educate, demonstrate and inform anyone and everyone of the importance of safety and security in public schools. The founding of the firm occurred as we were contracted to facilitate the installation of more than 6 miles of cable; and the deployment of millions of dollars for Switches and Routers to introduce students to the new “Information Superhighway.”
Fast forward twenty years: We have been able to demonstrate the benefits and efficiency that occurs when Security and IT are planned and designed simultaneously. To this end, we manage the design and integration requirement for network equipment sharing within a single district; and work to broker relationships among local governments and municipalities to more effectively share resources.
By overlaying the design infrastructure for Network Technology; and incorporating the client’s vision and objective, we develop and manage technical requirements to optimize the following:
