In large, full-service systems design projects, Security By Design
follows the multiple phasing format that is used in most typical
Sequence of phases:
· Conceptual Definition
· Schematic Design
· Design Development
· Contract Documents
· Bid Support
· Construction Support
Following this phasing ensures that the security system design
is carefully coordinated with all other project development activities
at every critical project milestone. This results in much smoother
system implementation and client confidence.
There are basic choices to be made from a design standpoint when
undertaking system specification development.
Specifications can be developed as:
· System specific (one manufacturer's make/model)
· A number of acceptable manufacturers' systems
· Performance criteria that the preferred system must match
Security By Design's extensive knowledge of the security system
marketplace permits us to develop specifications that match our
client's requirements, regardless of complexity.
We thrive on the challenge to develop security system specifications
in any of the typical security specialties including access control,
alarm monitoring, closed circuit television, control room and custom
console, and overall integration of multiple combinations of these
Security By Design can provide a comprehensive budgetary estimate
of the costs for the acquisition and installation of a new or upgraded
The budgetary planning recognizes the reality of phasing over time
to match the security system priority in the light of overall organization
SBD will time phase the new security system procurement plan in
logical increments that relate the best mating of time and available
It is extremely critical that the scheduling process be as complete
and accurate as possible for infrastructure items as well as the
security system itself.
Infrastructure components include:
· Installation of the signal path (conduit, risers)
· Power supplies (standard, emergency, or UPS)
· Grounding provisions
· Physical space build-outs
All are critically important to the timely and effective activation
of the new security system.
SBD prides itself in the wealth of experience and attention to
detail that we bring to the scheduling process of projects.
