The global pandemic has transformed the business world to the extent where remote work has become the norm, not only to ensure a business’ continuity but also to maintain the health and safety of their employees. Companies that were hesitant to shift to decentralized operations due to safety reasons, now have no option but to adapt to the change. Businesses are forced to digitalize their workspaces to create offices that support remote meetings and also facilitate productivity and collaboration. Helping companies implement the right technology necessary for in-person and remote meetings and facilitate the digital transition is Commtech Design, a premier technology design firm located near Grand Rapids, Michigan. From audio-video distribution, security, and telephone systems to data center design, Commtech Design provides custom-built solutions that ensure effective and intuitive interfacing for everyday use. “We are a team of certified specialists that provide an end-to-end design of audio and visual systems while incorporating the latest trends and touchpoints that are important for businesses,” says Bret Emerson, President of Commtech Design.

Commtech Design evaluates the building layout, and the client’s communications and technology needs to design the cabling infrastructure. The company then develops detailed drawings specifying locations of communication rooms and pathways to support the Audio/Video Systems. Moreover, the drawing’s and detailed specifications provide details about cable types, faceplates, and communication room equipment. The advantage of the detailed drawings is that it helps clients visualize the equipment they require in their building and where exactly the location of cables and hardware will be installed. Whether it is cabling between a table and display monitor on the wall or a large auditorium that supports remote classes, Commtech Design creates a delicate framework for a client’s communications infrastructure with their distinct needs in mind. “We have experience in creating design solutions that have the capacity to transmit data, telephone, audio, video, and security signal consistent with current and anticipated technological requirements,” explains Emerson.

Commtech Design’s extensive experience in educational and corporate construction allows them to create audio-visual distribution systems that are functional and minimally intrusive.

Commtech Design works alongside clients, architects, engineers, contractors on a personal and engaging level. This helps provide a comprehensive master plan for specific audio-visual distribution systems to clients aiding in the entire design process from proposal to implementation. “We then provide a comprehensive master plan for the project including specification documents and AutoCAD drawings to help obtain quotes and solicit competitive bids with confidence,” says Emerson. The ultimate goal is to work with clients as an extension of their team, providing unbiased, individualized advice to accomplish all objectives. Audio-visual distribution systems designed by Commtech Design are cost-effective and enable contractors to eliminate guesswork and ensure they can install the audio-visual equipment according to the building owner’s needs.

To illustrate Commtech Design’s capabilities, Emerson narrates how they helped a hospital in Michigan design and implement a system that allowed doctors to visit a patient’s room and display information such as X-rays on the screen. Doctors could share their screen with a patient and show them videos and images regarding medical procedures or other relevant details through a Roku device. Commtech Design also helped the client implement remote communication systems in every conference room. Moving forward, Commtech Design intends to expand into distributed antenna systems for emergency radio first responder systems and cellular distribution systems. The company is also extending its geographic footprint in response to the growing number of customers requesting its services. Commtech Design continues to blend a client’s unique requirements with the most effective audio-visual solutions that fit seamlessly into the architecture of the building.
