When creating a mission critical operations center, there is little room for error. This is the kind of project you want to get right on the first try, rather than having to make changes through trial and error. Over our three decades in the industry, Constant has assembled our own roadmap to guaranteeing project success.
The key to a successful project includes the following elements:
Careful planning before construction even begins is an important step to set the project on the right path. Constant can help you analyze and refine your requirements pre-construction to ensure the right elements come together.
To help ensure you create a design that fits your objectives, it’s important to consider the following before construction:
- The size of the room
- How many operators the room will need to accommodate
- The equipment needed in your operations center
- Ergonomics and operator comfort
- Whether you will include a collaboration space, and where
- Video wall system requirements including sources
- Any potential additional use cases such as tours
All of these elements will affect the ideal design for your space, and the most successful of projects take them all into account before finalizing their plans.
Involving an integrator early on in the project
Getting all important partners involved before any construction or installation begins is key to your project going off without a hitch. At Constant, we interface with your architects and interior designers before we ever step foot on site to make sure that our work flows seamlessly with theirs. The earlier you get us involved in your project, the better. By having thorough conversations at the outset about your wants and needs, we can determine an informed route forward for sourcing, cabling, and everything else for the integration of your video wall system.
Our design engineers at Constant create exact detailed design drawings.This way, installers on site have a roadmap to follow each step of the way. This documentation includes details like exactly what cables go where, which is important to make sure they can support the required resolution or span a particular distance. Thoroughly planning down to every last detail prevents unexpected issues and expenses from popping up.
Detailed documentation for every step of the project doesn’t just make the process easier; they ultimately save time and money so projects are completed on time and on budget.
From the complex cabling of AV racks to furniture assembly and equipment management, there are a lot of important steps in the installation of an operations center. Ultimately the installation is just as important as the design and planning phase. Without an installation of equal caliber, all of the careful planning would be rendered useless. That’s why it’s vital to have an install team that knows the ins and outs of mission critical.
At Constant, we train our install team in every aspect of mission critical installations. We aim for both optimal functionality and aesthetics, ensuring clean, organized cabling and flawlessly implemented components. We handle it all from video walls and AV racks to the furniture in your operations center.
