Eliminate Potential Challenges Using the Design-Build Approach for Your Next New York Project
5 Reasons You Should Choose IES to Automate Your MDU
Our lives have become increasingly more connected – from our cell phones to our cars to our homes. Our desire to stay connected with our environment has made automated amenities a necessity in today’s luxury housing units and upscale office buildings. These added bonuses make occupants’ lives easier, while creating an exclusive atmosphere of comfort and convenience.
In densely populated cities like New York, automation systems have also become a must for centralizing management of the large number of multiple units in sky rises, commercial spaces and hotels. As a developer no doubt you are thinking of adding automation to your next project, yet you might be wondering how to deliver superior results without going over budget. Whether you are building a multi-story high rise or developing a federal office building, IES has five reasons why choosing an integrator for everything from design to installation is the best choice.
Impress Potential Residents
Luxury buyers know exactly what they want in their next residence or office space. Thus, developers know that appealing to potential occupants is more than jaw-dropping views and private entrances but includes elite automation amenities as well. When new visitors imagine total control of their climate and entertainment from their smartphones, their emotional response will inspire them to act quickly to purchase space in your new building.
Deliver Higher Quality Projects
One of the most important reasons to partner with an integrator from the design phrase through installation is that you the client remain in total control. With everyone playing on the same team, the budget is agreed upon early and everyone is then centered on producing the best quality product for the price. This increased efficiency leads to the developer not having to worry about paying more for upgraded data networking capabilities at the risk of sacrificing on lighting control later down the road, as all necessary parts are accounted for from the start.
Shorten Your Construction Timeline
Tight time lines are common place in today’s market, making it essential to alleviate any stress that could potentially cause your project take longer and cost more. Separating the design of your project from installation, can result in many unnecessary headaches. When you choose IES to perform a full consultation of all of your networking and project needs, you help decrease both your design and construction time of your project.
Decrease Design and Installation Costs
With the design-build approach, communication is transparent as everyone strives to achieve a common goal. This team centered method not only reduces scoping and operational costs but change orders as well. Change orders can be costly, add construction delays and worst of all bring unwanted headaches to a project.
Avoid Potential Pitfalls
An integration firm that is well-versed in every aspect of project design, electrical engineering and installation. Even the best designed automation system throughout a commercial building or a residential dwelling unit can incur problems if not installed properly. Since integrators like IES are familiar with all the steps of the process, they can foresee and circumvent issues that traditional electricians may not have experienced.
Increase Customer Satisfaction
In the end, the success of your project is measured by the happiness of your occupants. Key card access, closed circuit surveillance and smart door locks help residents feel safe and secure, while video intercom integration and alert systems help owners and managers communicate freely and after-hours for the best concierge service possible.
