Lesson Learned/Best Practice

The IT&S Manager provided an equipment list in schedule/matrix format that was generated from the Architectural Profile and demonstrated all of the pertinent IT&S equipment that needed to be located & coordinated on the plans. This list was extremely helpful in ensuring that all IT&S equipment was accounted for properly. It allowed our engineers to make sure that adequate power & data were provided in the appropriate locations and should help in procurement, delivery, and installation at the end of the project.


Please note: I have the file that I can share. I tried to upload it with my first attempted submission but it gave me an error message. I will not try that again. Please reach out to if you would like to see this file.

Suggested Actions for Future Projects

Consider providing a similar IT&S equipment list to the Design Team on all future projects.
