How We Can Help

In the lifecycle of every major project – once the scope, function and parameters of the vision have been translated into more concrete form – the architectural and engineering team confronts an increasingly time-sensitive need to identify the vendors best suited to support the initiative. That’s a challenge if the team doesn’t have resources who are both experienced and also immediately available to drive this process efficiently.

Identification of Security Design Requirements

  • Consultation – either directly with property managers, end users and clients or with architectural, engineering and construction teams – to understand core project objectives, constraints and requirements and determine their implication for security design.
  • Evaluation of key site planning, design and layout plans as well as key physical, technical and operational security domains.

Integration into an Architectural Package

  • Creation of a comprehensive security system design, including plan drawings, details and connectivity diagrams that match the architect’s submittal package.
  • Creation of technical specifications for the security components of a project.
  • Coordination with design team members for interdependency requirements, such as HVAC, electrical, civil, mechanical, door hardware, telecommunications and others, as required.
  • Balancing an architectural aesthetic vision with less obtrusive security requirements.

Creation and Publication of Request for Proposal (RFP) Package

  • Development of a comprehensive RFP in coordination with your various legal, compliance and facility management teams.
  • Recommendations on RFP publication channels and tactics.
  • Preparation of RFP response instructions and release to responders.

Evaluation of RFP Responses and Negotiation Support

  • Analysis of responses and evaluation compared to RFP instructions provided.
  • Guidance and counsel on short-listed vendors, integrators and installers to determine which is best-suited to partner and support your architectural, engineering and construction objectives.
  • Assistance in negotiating final terms and contract with designated vendors, integrators and installers – – especially since these providers often have a vested interest in performing high quality work when we are involved in order to earn our trust and gain future work opportunities.
