The first thought for most when we say we have a special service offering in technology is “Oh, you’re into computers”. While it is true we use a lot of computers at KLH, we do not specify them. What we do however is design the systems that help people in the built environment communicate. There is a team of experts that form our Communication Information Technology (CIT) department. What do the occupants of buildings need to communicate and how do they do that? KLH designs the systems into your facility that enable you to communicate outside your walls (video- and tele-communications/computer network), see the world around you and know who’s coming/going (video surveillance & access control), present and educate (audio-video systems), and provide messages to occupants (digital signage). These systems and others like them, enable you to employ the built environment to receive and send your organizational communications. Our technology team carries the specialized training and credentials to guide you in these system selections. What do you need to say and how do you want to say it? We can help create the facility that transmits your message.
The route, the quantity, and the telecommunication rooms all need to be part of the design. We will identify conduit sizes, device locations, pathways and support (cable tray, J-hook), and all factors needed in a complete design. The rooms needed (ER/TR) to house communication systems is not limited to the computer network. These rooms are strategically located and sized to facilitate all systems in the facility. On multi-phased projects we are excellent at master planning the pathways to facilitate not only the active construction project but foreseeing potential future needs. Getting this correct has saved our clients untold amounts of money over the life of their building.
