School District of Pickens County, South Carolina – Telecommunications Portfolio

Services Provided: Integration of Technology Desgin with Electrical & Mechanical Plans

Project Profile: School District of Pickens County, South Carolina

Elert & Associates provided the complete technology design, integrating it with electrical and mechanical drawings.

E&A also provided rough and detailed drawings and specifications for all systems, developed bidding packages, developed budgets, and provided system software and hardware recommendations.

We are currently in the process of contract administration, overseeing the implementation of systems. This work was conducted for thirteen renovated and seven new buildings in the District’s $315 million bond program.

Systems included data infrastructure cabling, telephony, network electronics, educational technology support systems including multimedia systems, network security, physical security, and data network operation center.

The following is a testimonial from the School District of Pickens County:

The IPTV designed by Elert & Associates and implemented at the School District of Pickens County saved the District over $165,000.

In competitively bidding the telephone system, E&A saved the District over $294,420 on VoIP equipment based on prices received prior to E&A’s design and the bidding process.

E&A’s fees on both projects were a fraction of the monies saved.
