New Builds Workgroup
From HTNG Connectivity Wiki
This workgroup will develop comprehensive architectural and design guidelines as well as commissioning check lists that will ensure that proper technologies can be deployed when the building is commissioned. The workgroup would then socialize those guidelines with the architects, consultants and engineers that design hotels.
Current Workgroup Charter Outline
Develop comprehensive architectural and design guidelines as well as commissioning check lists that will ensure that proper technologies can be deployed when the building is commissioned. The workgroup would then socialize those guidelines with the architects, consultants and engineers that design hotels.
These guidelines should consider physical and RF infrastructure elements such as data centers, vertical risers, wireless connectivity (Wi-Fi, Cellular, DAS), physical network topology (including end points and switches), conduit, power, fire suppression, electrical and HVAC for the technology equipment. They should also relate to hotel applications that need the infrastructure such as digital marketing, telephony, in-room entertainment, way finding applications, life-safety, audio-visual, security monitoring and access control, and room control systems.
A series of deliverables that describe architectural and design guidelines as well as commissioning checklists and within a hotel. The deliverables will cover:
- Survey of Hoteliers Regarding Needs
- Architectural and Design Guidelines
- Commissioning Check Lists
- Jim McGlynn, Engineering Plus
- Jeff Loether, Electro-Media Design Ltd.
- Jeff Bzdawka, Hyatt Hotels
Facilitator: Patrick Dunphy
