NTI provided technology planning and design services for the facility infrastructure and the systems that rely upon it for the City Hall of Stockbridge, Georgia . We began with space planning, then planned and designed the infrastructure including the drawings for cabling systems, data, voice, security, audio visual and wireless systems.
Visitors to this beautifully designed, three-level facility pass an inviting fountain before entering the City Hall which includes an impressive lobby, ample office space, multiple conference rooms and a spacious Council Chamber.
The City Hall opened in the autumn of 2009 providing the city a spacious facility with offices, meeting rooms and a Council Chamber that occupies the entire upper level.
NTI Scope of Services
- Facility Technology Design – NTI designed and produced drawings and specifications for the infrastructure for the technology systems for the facility. NTI coordinated with members of the architect’s team, and the Ownership group. Our drawings detail all of the cabling, technology equipment rooms, power and HVAC requirements, cabling pathways and other elements of the “Information Transport System” (ITS). Using a globally recognized standards based approach per TIA/EIA, ANSI and BICSI guidelines, the completed ITS serves as the information highway for all data, security, TV, AV, and wireless systems.
- Security – NTI designed the security to monitor ingress/egress at each door on 2 levels, provided access control on all 3 levels for a variety of reasons including Mayor’s office, Council Members offices, and to secure Back of House areas. Security was planned for the parking area around the facility and for a fountain area on the grounds. An integrated access control system was planned and implemented to allow off-site monitoring from a nearby police station.
- Audio Visual Services – Council Chamber has multiple presentation options and locations, and has audio/visual recording capabilities for viewing of all activities, meetings and presentations that take place in the Council Chamber. NTI designed and assisted with the purchase of full multi-media for all room spaces within the building. We provided built-in digital way-finding with direct access to and control of information, and background music with individual volume controls for the administration areas.
- Construction Administration – During the construction phase, NTI personnel responded to inquiries from the contractors regarding the build out of the technology systems and visited the site to personally witness the contractor’s progress, workmanship and adherence to NTI drawings and specifications.
From concept through implementation, we worked closely with the Architect and Ownership teams to assure that the facilities within the Stockbridge City Hall are configured to address tomorrow’s technology challenges today.
