  • Test bench
  • Electric, lighting, telecommunications, floor, trim, and door schedules

The first phase of the design typically provides a detailed conceptual/schematic design including drawings that can be used as funding acquisition and sales tools, a detailed cost estimate, proposed business case, and preliminary cash flow model.  The second phase completes the detailed Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Security construction documents needed for construction, including the following drawings:
  • Structural Layout and Design Drawing(s)
  • Electric Layout Drawing
  • Telecommunications Drawing
AES Video Headend wiresIn addition to design, we can provide assistance with bidding and selection of the construction contractor and construction inspection.  Your Data Center may house your voice, video and data Headworks (as well as provide for future business collocation opportunities) in the same building.
Designing a Video Headend can include  an air tower, dish farm, control building, and a video headend.  Points that will be addressed include the following:
  • Below grade construction (soil analysis/foundation)
  • Pre-fab headend facility (floor layout)
  • Outside headend infrastructure (dish farm/tower)
  • Inside headend infrastructure (equipment racks)
  • Passive and active electronics
  • Test equipment
To complete your project, we can develop a project schedule and cost budget, publish construction documents, assist you in the bidding process, and assist with award of the construction contract.  We can also negotiate video content, assist with acquiring cooperative purchasing memberships and construction management.
