Technology isn’t limited to any one discipline in the complex industries we serve. Rather, it involves the continuum of systems and equipment – specifically equipment and devices (including medical equipment), IT, communications, low-voltage systems, AV, security, interoperability, and other critical environment technologies.

Mazzetti GBA consultants have helped facility owners and design teams plan, procure, and manage the installation of technology systems (like healthcare information systems) on more than 1,800 construction projects.  Drawing on this unsurpassed knowledge, we offer tangible solutions that envision the future and implement the latest technologies to maximize your technology investment.

Medical Equipment

Communications and Special Systems

The planning and positioning of IT and communication devices where staff will use them are vital elements of operational planning. Our planners understand workflow, device use, information management and communication, and the many other systems and equipment necessary to support the demands of your industry.

Low Voltage

Today, low-voltage design goes far beyond simply understanding the proper ways to install cable. It requires designing and developing an infrastructure to provide the necessary flexibility and expandability for future technologies in your industry.

It also requires an understanding of your workflow, the types of systems and equipment connected and information generated, where the information will be captured and saved, who uses the information, where the users are located, and how users will access each type of information. Uniquely, Mazzetti GBA addresses all of these issues, providing you with a comprehensive infrastructure design solution.
