Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is everywhere. It enhances and enables our way of living but with its benefits comes critical dependence. Without ICT the modern world would grind to a halt. This is equally true in the built environment. As such, ICT is a major consideration during the planning, design, construction and operation of any new development. The earlier you consider ICT in your project the greater the reward in cost, time, long term management and operation and, moreover, in realising the vision and purpose of the development.
Our team of ICT consultants and engineers has expertise in physical layer infrastructure, local and wide area networking, in-building and outdoor wireless and radio communications and public telecommunications infrastructure, amongst others. We understand what’s required to integrate and coordinate these technologies with other built environment systems such as audio visual, security and BMS (Building Management Systems), to provide converged infrastructures and intelligent buildings, and are used to finding innovative solutions to fulfil a need Additionally we have developed skills and experience in sectors with specialist and unique requirements such as, but not limited to, the aviation and hospital sectors.
We also understand the relationship between ICT, business and operational requirements. Together with our clients and design team members, whether they share some of our expertise in-house or not, we create strategies commensurate with client requirements allowing a clear path to a successfully implemented project and the benefits it is intended to bring.
