Technology Integration

Tetra Tech’s High Performance Buildings Group designs state-of-the-art technological solutions that consider end-user experience and future needs.

We provide integrated solutions that encompass telecommunications/information and communications technology (ICT), audiovisual, security, smart building and smart cities technologies, technology assessments and commissioning, distributed antennae systems (DAS), wireless systems, and information systems (local-area network [LAN], wide area network [WAN], voice). With the emergence of smart technology, the Internet of Things (IoT), and agile work environments, the built environment has developed into a highly connected sector that calls for close coordination and synergy among physical, network, and application systems.

Tetra Tech’s experts know that communication functions, audiovisual production equipment, and security systems work best when the user can operate them effortlessly. Our technology integration experts know the productivity and safety of a building’s occupants depend on system functionality and reliability. We create designs that seamlessly blend innovative solutions with easy operability. These systems must also be designed for redundancy and with future-proofed infrastructure to be adaptable to emerging technologies.

Tetra Tech designs audiovisual solutions that fulfill clients’ defined scope, required capabilities, and operational needs. We use modeling to illustrate how sound will pass through proposed spaces, demonstrating how a proposed solution will function in the real world before a single speaker is installed. This optimizes the effectiveness of all audiovisual solutions, from video walls to bespoke fitouts, integrating audiovisual components into the space in a functional and visually appealing way.

Tetra Tech’s security consultants can design an integrated physical and electronic security system, along with a plan to manage and audit its effectiveness. This ensures that the technology and processes in place can continue to adapt to changes in the physical and technological environments.

Tetra Tech also takes cybersecurity into account right from the base building level. Integrating the cyber, digital, and physical security approaches is vital to creating a robust security system. We strive to help our clients design an integrated technology infrastructure that optimizes the building system management; unifies communications and connectivity; and creates an efficient, predictive, and individualized user experience.
