Milton City Hall
Size: 32,000 SF
Location: Milton, GA
Project Team: Cooper Carry
Scope: IT/DV Cabling Infrastructure, AV & Security Systems
NTI served on the design team as a technology consultant for the Milton City Hall project. The new city hall is a two-story building that’s 32,000 SF and includes a community center building. The exterior architecture integrates historic Milton elements and the interior architecture designed to foster collaboration. The public areas' design allows the community to interact with various city departments in an open environment with lots of natural light. Energy efficiency and many sustainable design practices were incorporated.
Departments within the building that are included, Public Works, City Clerk, Finance, Parks & Recreation, Public Information and Marketing, Economic Development, City Manager, council chambers, and a community meeting area.
Cabling Design - We designed cabling infrastructure systems, including horizontal and vertical cabling, pathways, cable management, and IDF, MDF and equipment room layouts, and all outlet details. The cabling will support voice and data (POS, PMS, Admin LAN, wireless and hardwired internet) services. We showed conduit and back box requirements for coordination and incorporated them into the MEP documents.
MATV/CATV - We coordinated with the television service vendor and architect to identify all cabling, junction boxes, TV locations, splitters, taps, and amplifiers to provide a complete distribution system for the MATV/CATV system. We also provided layout details for the head-end room and a performance specification for the MATV distribution system. With the performance specification, the cabling vendor has the information to design, install, and test/certify the new MATV infrastructure per the equipment vendor requirements.
Security - We design and incorporate client’s recommendations for security systems devices to include closed-circuit security cameras, monitors, duress alarms, door contact alarms, alarm control panel, keypads, and motion detectors. We incorporated owner device locations in our drawing set as part of the Construction Documents after a review and final sign-off was completed and approved by the owner and operator.
Audio Visual - Audio/Video technology, meeting room technology, distributed audio video systems, display systems, and sound recording, reinforcement, and masking systems as required in the council chamber, meeting rooms, and public area. Control systems for evidentiary submittals presentation, distribution, and storage will also be a part of the design scope, as will AV support systems for all administration spaces.
