We’re still only a few weeks into the beginning of a new year, and there’s no better time than now to focus on your initiatives for the months ahead. For some, those new initiatives may include updating an old operations center or even building a new one.
Sometimes, the hardest part of a new project is knowing where to start. Luckily, Constant has that figured out.
Constant’s design process is a unique and vital part of your operations center project.We can begin designing your new mission critical environment at no cost to you, allowing you to visualize the possibilities before anything else. Here’s what you can expect when you start designing your operations center with Constant.
Begin by establishing requirements
To begin, Constant needs a floor plan or general room dimensions. On an initial phone call, a project manager will discuss your operational requirements, goals, and the intended number of users in the space. This allows us to begin creating a solution tailored to your unique needs.
Reviewing conceptual layouts
Once all the requirements have been established and reviewed, the design team at Constant gets to work on putting it all together. Depending on whether the client is looking for AV systems integration, console furniture, or both, this process can look a little different.
With conceptual layouts, multiple detailed views and revisions are done until the client’s exact needs and wants are met. We also make sure to use this time to confirm important components of the architectural drawing design set such as wall blocking, conduit locations, and floor tile cutouts.
For the design to be finalized, it must meet internal design standards as well. Multiple design engineers will review the concepts and details to ensure quality and share insights.
AV drawings and details
The AV drawings Constant produces give a precisely detailed view of exactly how your video wall system will be set up. AV design engineers will figure out drop locations and make a cable pull schedule. This occurs early in the design process to ensure that cables are pulled to the appropriate locations ahead of time, saving any future headache. Constant’s audiovisual design also includes details for equipment racks and AV schematics.
Full color renderings for review
One of the key differentiators in Constant’s design process is our full-color renderings. Our renderings produce detailed visualizations of the final design. These include elements such as your selected wall coloring and flooring as well as the finishes of your operations center furniture and lighting schematics. Renderings also include the audiovisual system like the operations center video wall. There is no need to wonder how all the design elements will come together in your command center – the completed full-color rendering provides a detailed depiction. These renderings provide a direct visual aid to help bridge between the conceptual designs and the final build of a project, and can be useful in discussions with your team.
To installation and beyond
Our thorough design process sets our projects up for success. The detailed documentation we create ensures seamless, efficient installation.
Constant’s commitment to quality continues through all phases of your project. From sales to design to installation, each department works together as a team to provide a solution that best serves the client.
