Design and Engineering

Maybe you don’t need an entire system designed and built

just some technical AV expertise to fill in the gaps? We’re happy to help with that.

Space Planning

David Carroll Associates can facilitate your project build-out by bridging the communications gap between you and your architects. Our understanding of both the client’s goals and the technical systems being installed gives us critical input on and insight into plans. We can also detail out architectural base plans with equipment and furniture profiles, which helps the team evaluate access and egress, as well as assure compliance with Title 24 requirements.

AC Power Planning

DCA can consult with your electrical engineer or contractor about the special requirements of installing AV systems. To facilitate this, we can develop a power requirements plan in the design stage to help plan for power and cooling needs. After developing an equipment plan, we can provide additional detail that includes circuit locations and device requirements.

Technical Infrastructure

Most AV/technology projects involve a veritable tangle of technologies such as telephone and data lines, audio and video infrastructure, security features and access controls. It is critical that all these areas be given due consideration when space is being planned. Considering all these factors will eliminate redundancies and ensure smooth coexistence among technologies.

DCA thinks through these details and provides design services for low voltage cable accommodation, fixed equipment racking systems, head and room layout, structured wiring system design, interconnect panels, hardware and cable design.
