Planning & Design
Integrated Design Service.
Keeping up with the latest developments in technology is nearly impossible for today’s technical professional considering the day-to-day demands on their time. Adding NIS to your team enhances your existing IT staff’s expertise by providing a knowledge base that stems from real field experience. An integrated design solution from NIS means that all technologies are incorporated into a single design. This minimizes the crisis management in the project and reduces change order activity, which saves time and money.
NIS has the expertise and qualifications to design communications systems with department goals and objectives in mind. Our staff is well-versed in many areas, including the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI).
An NIS integrated design solution provides two primary deliverables:
- Design drawings in AutoCAD® or Revit®
- Technical specifications in CSI MasterFormat
We are familiar with the design technologies used by architects and our staff understands the design implications associated with an integrated solution. NIS will work with technology and facilities staff to integrate specific requirements into the design and specifications within Divisions 27 & 28 (the architectural design divisions dealing with communications and security).
Our process empowers the client’s team by providing a liaison that reports to the project manager. Our liaison acts as subject matter expert with the primary responsibility of integrating designs between the architect, the mechanical/electrical/plumbing (MEP) teams, and the client’s own technology and facilities staff.
