The Opinion of Probable Construction Cost (OPCC) document is utilized to identify the technology budget needed to support the shared technology vision of a given project, articulated by the owner and design team.
David Marks, TEECOM CEO, explores a transformative paradigm shift within the built environment: from passive buildings, to buildings that engage us directly. From discovering the location of assets (whether people, a conference room, or a desk for a couple of hours) to simply launching a presentation (based upon location) in user friendly manner – the way in which we live, work, play, and inspire within buildings is changing.
TEECOM’s Director of Network Engineering, Bob Fluegge, examines a new class of HDMI extenders and their use in the built environment. Bob reviews the test results of three HDMI extender products, which include the Gefen TTV-WHD-1080P, Intelix Skyplay-HD, and SoundTube WLL-TX1.
Imagine a world where physical space is not merely a passive container but rather an active participant in the collaborative workflows that are crucial to the success of modern business. We call this concept the socialbuilding® platform — a building at the confluence of ubiquitous connectivity, abundant data, and powerful software.
TEECOM’s Audiovisual Department Director, Ben Shemuel, illustrates scenarios where projection screen technology is still a valuable outlet for digital display systems in conference rooms, classrooms, and outdoors.
Larry Anderson, TEECOM’s Principal and Chief Engineer, describes a simple AutoCAD tool created by TEECOM to assist architects and designers with telecom room placement in building infrastructures. Misplacing telecom rooms can affect the cost of projects, and is why the design engineers at TEECOM value the importance of moving technology forward and eliminating unnecessary mistakes in the design process.
