Since 1995, Robert Derector Telecommunications (RDT) has been providing its clients with a full range of IT-related design, engineering and consulting services. These services, which include IT infrastructure and systems engineering, electronic security and audiovisual system design, are geared toward providing robust, innovative solutions for today’s technology intensive workplace. Our principals and engineering staff have a broad range of experience that includes financial services firms, corporate offices, academic institutions, research and development facilities and government buildings.
The hallmark of RDT’s design philosophy is flexibility. We believe that the only constant in today’s business environment is change, particularly as it relates to modern technological systems. Like other elements of a building’s infrastructure, the IT infrastructure and systems must be capable of efficiently and cost effectively accommodating these ever-changing information transport requirements. To achieve this goal, the IT-infrastructure must be free of vendor and hardware dependencies of any kind. In support of this philosophy, members of RDT’s staff have actively participated in the development of the various documents that make up the ANSI/TIA North American telecommunications infrastructure standards.
Our staff is accustomed to working as integral members of the design and construction teams to ensure that the technological, financial and scheduling demands of the project are met. We are equally at home working with a client’s IT department as we are working with the project’s architects, engineers and other consultants. Throughout the design process, the emphasis is placed on producing a biddable, buildable telecommunications design that is fully coordinated with the other building systems. During the installation phase of the project, we work closely with our clients and their vendors and contractors to ensure that the design intent is efficiently carried out.
