  • Technology System Designs

    With three experienced Registered Communications Distribution Designers (RCDDs) on staff, we specialize in the design of industry-standard technology systems and related infrastructures that are part of a building, including:

    • Technology Infrastructure (spaces, pathways, cables, and network connectivity)
    • Integrated and Distributed AV including Classroom Systems
    • Security
    • Clinical

  • Based on more than 20 years experience as an independent consulting firm that is unencumbered by product commissions, Archi-Technology has been providing objective, strategic project design services to education and healthcare clients in the northeast U.S. for more than two decades.

    We are equally adept at new construction and renovation projects.

FAST FACT

Technology systems sq.ft costs for new construction projects.

Did you know that the average cost per sq./ft. for the technology components of your capital or construction project varies by market?

K12: $20 to $25 per square foot
Higher Ed: $20 to $35 per square foot
Healthcare: $35 to $50 per square foot

The exact project cost will be based on a number of factors including renovation or new build, current conditions, future goals, and systems/equipment involved.
