Telios, Corporate Office – State Farm building system services included MEP engineering, technology design, Data and Security design and consulting for shell and interior office, parking garage retail and campus.

Corporate Commercial

Recent experience on over 7 million square feet of corporate campus ground up design and 3 million square feet of interior renovation, Telios building system designs address energy efficiency, first costs, flexibility, scalability, teleconferencing, and hoteling.  Telios assists in establishing building systems deliverables; defining shell versus tenant mechanical, electrical, and technology systems and construction scopes.

Building systems are complex and clients need consultants who clearly communicate the options, speak to different levels of building system understanding, while never losing site of the project goals. Our MEP engineering and technology system designs align with those agreements; assist in bidding the documents; evaluate bids; entertain and assess alternative value-engineering ideas; offer construction administration; and finally commission systems and train staff.

Industrial / Distribution
X
Telios provided MEP engineering, DAS systems and structured cabling design for industrial and distribution centers

Industrial / Distribution

Our Industrial / Manufacturing / Distribution efforts typically place a higher priority on functionality, reliability, and life cycle costs. Some clients prefer fully automated operations compared to the simpler “battleship quality.”  The MEP engineering design goals are to extend functionality, support sustainability directives, and accommodate new technologies.

Telios projects have included complex, multi-discipline designs as well as standalone work on heating / ventilation / HVAC, plumbing, refrigeration, boiler upgrades, fire protection, electrical power distribution, electrical power quality, interior and exterior lighting, technology infrastructure and telecommunication installations.

Automotive

Automotive

The automotive industry requires MEP systems that can meet diverse needs in specific operations including industrial air quality HVAC, specialty lighting for owner controllability and cost control, office and customer service areas as well as new technology applications.

Crucial MEP and technology systems design maximizes building operations. Telios’ approach includes:

  • Third party equipment coordination
  • Lighting design and control systems which impact cost of operations and meets compliance codes
  • Technology systems to track bulk fluids and support the use of pneumatic tools
  • HVAC systems which support air quality in vehicle maintenance and service areas
  • Design applications to meet codes addressing carbon monoxide and compressed natural gas systems
Mixed Use / Multifamily
X
Telios provided MEP engineering for the new KDC CityLine Master planned development in Richardson, TX.

Mixed Use / Multifamily

Location and timing affect the success of a mixed-use development so also the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and low voltage system decisions can impact critical aspects and have ramifications affecting the property’s marketability and profitability.

Telios’ design solutions account for the specialized needs of mixed-use facilities and provide the most economical design alternatives. These include campus-wide fire alarm systems, sight-line decisions on placement of HVAC equipment, multi-level and zoned comfort systems, utility coordination, and compensating for open doors. We consult to add value on long-term vs. short-term HVAC approaches that can impact the leasing package thus considering the client’s revenue stream.

Institutional

Institutional

Telios understands and is experienced in working within the governmental and public agency standards and with multiple vested parties. Our experience includes: Higher Education, City Halls, Libraries, Fire Stations, Data Centers, Police and Court Facilities, LEED Consulting, Recreational and Aquatic Centers, 911 Dispatch and Emergency Operation Centers, and Service Centers.

Adept at addressing the challenges of operational design and cost of diverse facilities as well as management of standards and processes, Telios understands working with varying vested parties, assists with meeting public agency obligation to sustainable initiatives and tight budgets, and seeks to provide the best value by looking for the most cost-effective engineering solutions.

MEP

Telios’ mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers bring established, field-tested expertise to their building systems designs. Their design skills are perpetually improved through consistent feedback from our construction administration team.

Our comprehensive HVAC system designs focus on comfort, infection control, life safety and inherently sustainability. Our spectrum of design experience ranges from small retail applications to new, large multi-million square foot campus applications.

Our electrical engineering encompasses all aspects of power planning, electrical distribution up to 25kV, on-site generation, UPS systems, lighting, and fire alarm systems. We offer coordination studies, fault current and arc fault analyses for our own designs, as well as to the market at-large.

Telios’ plumbing engineering and consulting is focused squarely on issues of water quality and conservation, as well as distribution of medical and industrial gases, fire protection, and storm water collection and re-use. As is true of our other professionals, our plumbing design team brings thoughtful experience, understanding and solid performance to every project.

Structured Cabling

No matter what type of business you have, chances are it relies on a network of structured cables (e.g., fiber optic or copper) to transmit data.

A well-designed structured cabling system begins with listening to your needs, pursuing the best value, and establishing and separating sensitive data transmission from inconsequential data.

Telios has proven experience in designing multi-million square foot corporate campus carrier services, fiber loops throughout those campuses, cable-intensive data centers, building distribution systems and the final detail of floor boxes.

Early planning is the key to accommodating your current business applications, while developing a manageable system for the future.

Audio Visual

Corporate communication consistently looks to audio-visual systems to collaborate both locally and globally. As audio-visual systems have become a large portion of a project budget, clients are demanding these systems to be thoughtfully planned, designed and commissioned.

Our approach to audio-visual system design not only seeks the best value for collaborative communication, but also integrates these systems with the structured cable systems to provide holistic good project value. Our audio-visual expertise includes:  presentation systems; conferencing/telepresence systems; and digital media distribution systems.

Security

Security systems have become much more than card access. They can integrate with HVAC and lighting control systems to control energy consumption, and interconnect with car-charging or parking garage access systems to generate revenue.

Security system design must not only anticipate occupant traffic patterns, risk analyses, and establish hierarchies of security, but also consider both normal operations and emergency operations. In a fire alarm scenario, the security system must provide safe egress while maintaining internal security.

Telios’ security design team has the ability to provide simple security system designs to comprehensive, campus-wide systems that not only control access, but incorporates sustainable and financial measures.
