Pandemic Resistant Implementation (PRI) Technology Concepting

Technology serves as one of the four principles of PRI that may be used in development to mitigate the spread of communicable diseases such as COVID-19 by utilizing technology in innovative ways.   Some examples of this is the use of touchless, gesture based, voice controls, and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) interactivity for various building systems such as the following:

  • Elevators
  • Access Control
  • Thermostat
  • Shades
  • Audiovisual
  • Wayfinding

GCDP can assist by bringing these technology solutions to the client and guide them through the various analysis associated with cost vs benefit, installation timelines, and the Total Cost of Ownership including service requirements.
