PROJECT SCOPING – DESIGN & WORKPLACE INTEGRATION – COST & RISK ANALYSIS

Project Preparation

The second pillar of Kinly’s Global Enterprise Framework is Project Preparation (GEF.2). The process of preparing for global projects can be incredibly daunting. How will the established working methods of regional teams be affected? What impact will this have on legacy systems and infrastructure? What will the cost implications be? Kinly is with you every step of the way. We work with you to apply your standards to specific projects (globally) to determine what solutions to deploy, including individual room layouts, M&E drawings, project cost analysis, tender packs and project plans to prepare you and your teams for success.

Project Scoping

Project Scoping

Focusing on the core business purpose of each project, our Solution Architects align your approved technology standards and implementation policies to meet every requirement.

In gaining an intimate understanding of your business and technology preferences, our Solutions Architects immerse themselves in your key business transformation initiatives to achieve complete clarity on the technology and infrastructure required for delivery. This ensures that we represent your vision across every project, in every part of your distributed organization.

Application of standards

Application of standards

Engaging directly with your technology leadership teams, our Enterprise Services team ensure that enterprise-wide standards are maintained throughout each project. To secure continuity, individual or regional business requests are aligned to global standards and implementation policies.

Understanding the need for our technology to align with your workplace and IT security constraints, our Solution Architects ensure your standards are utilized with maximum efficiency.

We ensure approach consistency by briefing all relevant teams, including the project owner/sponsor, IT, facilities/real estate, architects/interior designers, furniture vendors, the main contractor, and other M&E contractors.

Room / space design

Room / space design

Room design can have a significant impact on the user experience. Light, furniture, colors, and acoustics are great examples of how even rooms with the greatest technology can be left unused, simply because the environment is not suited for the purpose of the room. Our Solution Architects use your technology standards and best design policies to establish an efficient design process, delivering designs and visualizations, building design consensus before progressing to more exact CAD designs and, if necessary, 3D renders.

This process outputs a detailed Scope of Work (SoW), supported by precise architectural drawings. The SoW enables local project contractors to quote and plan efficiently and accurately for the required work.

Cost analysis

Cost analysis

Where complex project budgets are segmented by business unit, budget holder or technology category (such as VC, networks infrastructure, AV and digital signage room booking), our Project Architects develop a rounded analysis of the full financial impact of each design iteration as they are scoped. This enables us to model the entire project and evaluate possible volume efficiencies.

The Project Architect’s cost analysis also includes a detailed assessment of the local marketplace, including the AV ecosystem of distributors, specialist AV/VC resellers, component manufacture locations, shipping routes affecting fulfilment lead-times and freight costs, local tax, and import and customs conditions affecting the price to the door. This approach helps to ensure best possible capital and operational value.

Workplace integration

Workplace integration

Aligning people, space and technology. Operating across the full AV spectrum – combining technical, spatial, and operational AV design – and working closely with acoustic, lighting and furniture designers, we deliver fully integrated workplace solutions.

Our user-centric design philosophy, underpinned by our high-quality support wherever you operate, helps deliver a superior experience for all your users. We help you maximize user adoption and deliver tangible improvements in collaboration and productivity.

Acting as the interface between your IT, real estate and design teams, we ensure that all technology requirements are met within the overall programme. We also address the needs of all stakeholder groups when planning a new AV implementation, removing any barriers to successful and rapid deployment.

Project Governance

Our trusted advisors work alongside you, we explain your options and build practical transformation plans for your global programme objectives. Deliver all projects, globally, in a consistent and efficient manner by standardising project planning, implementation, supply chain management, commissioning management, asset data capture and QA, regardless of who is selected to supply the hardware and installation engineering resource.
