Division 27 communications are a huge part of every commercial development. That’s because all businesses rely on a variety of voice and data cabling, equipment, and devices. As a general contractor, you have to deliver Division 27 telecommunications to all of your commercial projects. If you don’t specialize in these wiring solutions, you’ll need a Division 27 expert you can count on. Look no further than Business Enterprise Solutions (BES)!
The Division 27 Experts
BES is part of the Solid Signal family. As a matter of fact, it’s a sub-division of our Signal Connect division. The group was formed when the company saw a need for our team’s Division 27 expertise. With commercial construction happening every day, general contractors need a partner they can rely on to design and plan a variety of complicated Division 27 systems. BES specializes in all forms of Division 27 communications including:
- Project management
- Certification Testing
- Maintenance Contracts
- Structured Cabling
- Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS)
- Fire Alarm Systems
- Security/CCTV/Access Control
- Building Automation/Controls
- Building Information Modeling
Meet the BES Team
Business Enterprise solutions is led by its General Manager Franco Marano. He’s BICSI/RCDD-certified, and brings 20 years of project management to BES. “I joined BES in October 2019 and I’m excited to be part of the team!” Franco said. “I plan to continue building partnerships with everyone from general contractors to vendors to have successful projects.”
Nicholas Mily is another important member of the team. As Director of Projects and Sales, he’s usually a general contractor’s first point-of-contact with BES. Nicholas says he gets a lot from this process, adding, “The opportunities for growth, knowledge and forming friendships is amazing! Each day is always different, and I’m able to take away so much from these interactions.”
Division 27 Success
In the world of commercial construction, a company is only as good as its projects. BES has already had major successes on many big projects. For example, the team helped deliver one of the largest, most comprehensive 4K installations to date. It’s located in the owner’s suite of the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL. This installation connected 22 receivers to a custom-designed switching and distribution system. To finish this installation, BES also had to:
- Get special authorization/approval from the manufacturer
- Design the system from scratch
- Build the bill of materials and build sheet
- Create the installation diagram
- Educate the general contractor’s build team on the specifics of satellite installation
- Establish key partner relationships
- Work closely with the contractor at every step
- Upgrade TV distribution system for the east side of the stadium
- Test all levels
- Add new splitters
- Install new TV headend system
When everything finally came together, everyone at BES was proud of its work. They weren’t the only ones. Dan Roy, the stadium’s Venue Technology Manager, also had these kind words to say about the BEST team:
“Under time constraints due to the season start, Signal Connect was on time to provide an independent RF system that was also able to tie into the existing TV infrastructure allow the space to have its own localized TV control in a premium area of the stadium.”
Another Division 27 Success Story
BES had another successful installation at the Atlanta Braves Spring Training Facility Complex in North Port, FL. The team was brought in to wire the entire facility for more than 100 TVs. This massive installation required BES to:
Work with a manufacturer from Spain to implement products for the owner’s cable TV system.
Supply the splitters, taps, and headend systems.
Test and install taps and splitters to ensure all levels were done to spec.
Work with cable TV provider to ensure all programming was HD and working.
Work with other contractors to ensure everything was done on time and ready for the first spring training game.
As you can see, no commercial development or structure is too big for BES. Our team can develop a custom floor plan and system design for any development’s Division 27 communication needs. And once everything is done, BES provides free ongoing support. If you or your client has any questions about the installation, call your Business Enterprise Solutions rep and they’ll be happy to help.
