The integration of Information Technology within our work is a crucial component of our design process. Today, we stay at the forefront of lighting design firms and continuously integrate new technologies into our work not only to deliver results, but also to create "MAGIC".
Using the latest Intel Xeon(tm) dual processor workstations equipped with triple-screen displays, our designers work with Computer Aided Design (CAD), Building Information Modeling (BIM) software, Desktop Content Creation (DCC) software, and graphics applications, to deliver designs with the clarity, accuracy, consistency, and compatibility expected by our clients.
Complex electric and daylighting systems are modeled utilizing the latest calculation software to verify the qualitative and quantitative impact of our designs. All of our designs are stored on our fault-tolerant servers, all data is backed up and stored off-site for disaster recovery purposes.
FMS is proud to offer professional-quality design presentations, produced in house with our state of the art printers and plotters. Our communication capabilities include two rooms, equipped with advanced IP and ISDN Dual Screen video conferencing equipment, complete with overhead document cameras and projectors for large scale presentation. Traditional means of communication, both internal and with clients, consist of Voice over IP (VoIP) telephone system, Skype, WebEx, GoToMeeting and enterprise E-Mail and mobile communications via smart phones and iPads.
We use Information Technology to achieve the demanding creative, functional and performance goals set by our clients. Our on-site IT Manager's focus remains on helping us stay in the lead by aligning IT strategy to our business and optimizing our work flow by reducing points of friction often associated with new technologies.
