Their Challenge

With schools originally constructed in 1930 (East), 1959 (West) and 1964 (South) and after years of upgrades, D207 was seeking to improve their safety and security as well as replace outdated equipment and connectivity to maintain its long history of being a technology leader.

Our Solution

We worked with the D207 staff and design team to understand the needs of the school and modern designs of the buildings.  With that understanding and those goals in mind we designed systems that provide progressive technologies, provide greater reliability, and standardized all schools on the same systems to improve the overall operational knowledge for staff at the schools.

The Results

The implementation of the project is on-going as the construction is scheduled over four summers.  The completed portions of the projects have been well received and has provided the schools with the technology and flexibility that they were seeking.
