We are pleased to announce that TEECOM has joined IPI!   

TEECOM exists at the intersection and integration of people, buildings, and technology.  They work with owners, architects, and design teams to deliver foundational flexibility via integrated technology design, liberating owners from siloed technology implementations.   It is their mission to create buildings and spaces that inspire, engage, promote collaboration as well as efficiencies, and ultimately enhance the user experience.

TEECOMTheir practice groups include integrated technology design/ engineering, technology project management, strategy, and research.  The disciplines within their design and engineering arm are comprehensive, including all technology systems in buildings, such as telecommunications, security, network, audiovisual, acoustics, network, wireless (Wi-Fi, distributed antenna systems (DAS)), VoIP, and other electronic systems. TEECOM's technology project management team augments IT operations, by tackling any and all issues encountered during the facility planning cycle, particularly during implementation, when risk is most acute to owners.  Some notable projects that they have worked on include: Oakland International Airport Terminal 1 Renovation, Global Expansion, and the UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay.

Please join us in welcoming TEECOM to the IPI Family!
