Making technology work for you and your residents

Our model addresses immediate day-to-day challenges at the same time as adopting a managed roadmap approach to achieving operational excellence through technology.

Design, technical, compliance and consulting expertise solves the complex life safety, security and communications challenges that are specific to IRC operators.

Maximising your technology investment

You require robust, future-focused strategies to balance total cost of ownership and commercial strategy with resident safety, security and quality of life.

In a complex industry with multiple service providers, technologies and regulations, it's easy to get bogged down by the 'technical' details. Our team facilitates a customer-led approach, helping to approach things more strategically, resulting in a clear, unambiguous technical specification that can be shared with and actioned by the project’s consulting engineer.

The challenge for IRC operators

With safety, security, regulatory and budgetary requirements in a state of flux and a rapidly evolving technology landscape, it's imperative for you to remain agile or you risk being left behind.

⬡ You and your development partners aren’t technology experts so you’ll likely require additional specialist knowledge and support

⬡ Technology specified for a new development can become obsolete even before residents move in

⬡ Compliance requirements evolve, so newer technologies are required to keep people safe and protected at all times

⬡ Resident demands around the latest technologies increase pressure on commercial strategies

⬡ Technology decisions made at the beginning can have serious knock-on effects to the cost and viability of the overall development
