About Us


Planning Before Building®

NTI was founded by Jeff Cook and his partners to provide professional commercial technology consultation services. Since 1998, NTI has developed an impressive portfolio of over 1,400 projects.


Our company is led by seasoned professionals who carry industry designations such as RCDD, RCDD/NTS, CTS, CTS-D, and PMP. The NTI family and our portfolio continue to grow with projects in 43 states across the United States, Washington DC, Canada, the Caribbean, and overseas.


NTI’s expertise addresses the largely unseen technologies on which we rely at work, at home, and at play.

In June 2018, NTI became an affiliate company of Automated Systems Design, Inc. (ASD®). This strategic move gives us the ability to help our clients address the remaining components of the technology life cycle beyond planning & design. While NTI remains a design-only firm, we now have the ability to recommend ASD® services to complete a solution when asked for installation, deployment, and service/support.


ASD® is a nationwide provider of design, engineering, and project management for workplace technologies.
