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, and interoperability.
Mazzetti GBA consultants have helped facility owners and design teams plan, procure, and manage the installation of technology 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.
To help meet your current and longer term medical equipment needs in ways that optimize value, reduce overall costs and focus on patient care, our professional consultants draw upon extensive clinical expertise, product knowledge and planning and implementation experience.
We help your staff select the best equipment for operational needs, while providing the entire project team with specifications vital to the design process. We utilize the industry’s most complete database of current medical equipment specifications and pricing. And we provide 24/7 web accessibility for your project team and manage the database using our custom software, which contains hundreds of critical data elements not included in off-the-shelf software.
IT involves much more than simply planning data outlets. We understand that a multitude of devices and technologies must connect — and that these technologies are situated in hundreds, even thousands, of locations around your facility.
We provide operational analysis, needs assessment, vendor evaluations, planning, implementation and post occupancy performance reviews for any and all technologies in your facility.
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.
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.
The collaborative needs of today’s business and healthcare environment demands complex audiovisual solutions that span multiple platforms. Our consultants bring the understanding of real integrated with rich media environments ranging from teleconferencing to board rooms to training facilities and robust auditorium solutions.
Security solutions must embrace comprehensive technological systems that are fully integrated to protect to your built environment, your organization’s assets and, most of all, your people. We work closely with you and your architect to assess and determine cost-effective solutions that will meet your needs.
Managing technology integration ensures that your system and device technologies connect, exchange data and interpret shared information. Our technology integration specialists understand and identify required technology interfaces, interoperabilities, network addressing requirements, all necessary software interfaces and middleware, and responsibilities for each.
We manage the process — scheduling installation, connection and testing for each interface — which ensures that each technology is configured to complement operational workflow and provides the right information to the right party in the right location at the right time.
Whether adding to or renovating an existing facility, building and moving into a replacement facility or activating a start-up facility, our transition planning service ensures that your space transition and “go-live” are seamless.
Our process includes four key phases that can be customized to meet the specific needs of your project– pre-activation, activation, go-live and post-occupancy. Working closely with the architect, contractor, the equipment planning and technology team, support staff and end users, we ensure that personnel are prepared to occupy and thrive in your new space and that activation activities occur in a logical sequence.
