Project Description

Corporate Technology Solutions was selected by Core Construction to be the design build special systems firm to work with the NAU construction services department, Core Construction, architects and engineering firms  to upgrade grade the  fire alarm system  in five (5) existing dormitory complexes at NAU totaling 29 buildings.

The project is expected to take two years to complete with the majority of the work finishing in August 2014. We will be working with Core Construction closely to develop project goals and objectives then coordinating our efforts with several other trades on the project.

Due to the tight time frame for installation Corporate Technology Solutions will stage, program and test the majority of the new fire alarm system at our Tempe, Arizona facility then deploy them to the sites for efficiency. We will also tie the new Notifier systems into the Notifier OnyxWorks Master NAU FACP/ECS Head End.

Our structured cabling division will also be involved during the construction working with Core Construction to relocate existing telecommunication facilities and Wi-Fi networks to accommodate the new construction efforts.

We are very excited to be part of Core Construction’s team and look forward in working with them on this exciting project.

General Contractor: Core Construction, Phoenix, Arizona CTS Personnel: Estimator Scott Tubbs and Dennis Greenawalt Project Manager Dennis Greenawalt

Project Description

Corporate Technology Solutions was selected by Core Construction to assist in the design and build of the Larkspur Elementary School re-model project. The project consisted of demolishing the majority of buildings on the campus while keeping the school functional through the school year.

This was no easy task and required special attention to details and coordination with all the trades on the project. This required us to install several temporary back bone systems to keep the data, voice, fire, security, intercom and surveillance systems running during construction.

The project took over 9 months to complete and during that time we installed a new category 6 data communication network supporting the data, voice, video, Wi-Fi and camera system. We also installed a new addressable fire alarm system, video surveillance system, IDS System, atomic clocks and intercom paging systems in house.
