  • Technology Master Format Planning
    Today’s construction industry is a different place from where it was even just ten years ago. The world around has advanced by leaps and bounds, and the construction industry has had to follow suit. Today’s business facilities are so much more than just walls, electric power and light, plumbing and HVAC. Today’s business facilities incorporate all of these things and so much more. From redundant power supplies, 24×7 backup facilities, and multiple environment control systems; to complete building control and automation systems, and miles of communications cabling, today’s business facilities are complex environments. Not only are the buildings themselves more complex, but also the means and methods by which they are constructed. As such, the organization, engineering, and teamwork required to construct them correctly and on-time are just as complex. Our data center consulting services can stream-line and simplify the process for you.
