Click on any of the four phases below to see the specific steps in the Triton Technology Project Process.

Phase 1: Programming

The goal of Phase 1 is to clearly identify the project needs and establish the process for project approval.

Needs Analysis

  • Analyze client’s vision
  • Define functional, operational and workflow requirements
  • Define overall project goals

Review Existing Documentation and Facilities

  • Architectural and engineering drawings

Benchmark Comparable Facilities / Systems

  • Identify successful designs and installations
  • Review technology trends

Program Meetings

  • Client and Triton collaboration
  • Define management, operator, engineering requirements

Program Report

  • Executive summary
  • System descriptions
  • Conceptual design
  • Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM) project budgets

Review and Approval

  • Program Report Review
  • Report approval is basis for systems design
  • Proceed to Phase 2 – Design

Phase 2: Design

The goal of Phase 2 is to provide detailed design, specifications, and final bill of materials, with final client project review and approval.

Design Meetings

  • Client and Triton collaboration
  • Design, system, and documentation review
  • Product evaluation, demonstration and comparable product shoot-outs

Technical System Documentation

  • Single-line drawings
  • Floor plans, rack and console elevations
  • Custom broadcast service panels (BSP)
  • Final space planning, floor plans, equipment locations, etc.
  • Mounting details (cameras, monitors, projectors, etc.)
  • Connector details
  • Patch and modular equipment frame layouts
  • Wire-list

Establish the Infrastructure

  • AC power, grounding, and conduit requirements
  • Acoustic and lighting criteria
  • Video and audio formats
  • Mounting methods for racks/consoles and hanging fixtures
  • HVAC, and mechanical requirements
  • IP address schedule

Software Requirements / Plan

  • Control system
  • Touch-panel screen layouts
  • Digital signal processor
  • Voting system
  • Router
  • IP address schedule

Critical Design Review

  • Internal peer-review of technical drawings and infrastructure components
  • Owner’s technical representative review of all drawings
  • Make design changes as required

Final Bill of Materials (BOM)

  • All technical equipment is identified by manufacturer, model and configuration
  • Market pricing is identified

Bid Specifications

  • Triton provides written technical bid specifications for design-only projects

Review and Approval

  • Drawing and equipment BOM review
  • Proceed to Phase 3 – Installation / Oversight

Phase 3: Installation

The goal of Phase 3 is to install, terminate, label and dress the cabling, as well as install and rack all equipment.

Installation Coordination Meeting

  • Meeting to discuss project, schedule and communications protocol
  • Determine process for authorizations, process for payment, Request For Information (RFI) and Change Order (CO) process
  • Equipment delivery and installation logistics
  • Sample finishes are submitted for owner selection

Procure Equipment

  • Technical equipment BOM items are purchased
  • Received equipment is secured and staged for installation
  • Equipment shipping documents and serial number information are collected

Infrastructure Prepared

  • Electrical and mechanical infrastructure has been installed by others, including conduit, cable trays and back boxes
  • Cable pulls between floors/rooms and inaccessible spaces maybe completed prior to the spaces being sealed

Pre-Assembly and Testing

  • Cable assemblies may be pre-assembled either on or off site to aid in installation
  • Pre-testing of some equipment or subsystems may be tested before onsite installation
  • Software testing may occur offsite for control systems, audio/video DSP systems, imaging systems, surround-sound processors, etc.

Assemble and Test the Technical Equipment

  • Install equipment in racks and to structures
  • Install pre-assemblies and software
  • Run, dress and terminate all cables to technical equipment
  • Coordinate vendor installation/commissioning on specific equipment as required
  • System is ready for commissioning and training

Phase 4: Commissioning and Training

The goal of Phase 4 is for the system to be tested, programmed and configured. System is fully operational, training is completed, and As-Built Documentation is delivered

Preliminary Tests

  • Verify all work has been completed by other trades
  • Perform final test and alignment on all installed technical systems
  • Optimize software programming for control systems, switchers, routers, intercom, etc.
  • Perform any required parametric testing and documentation
  • Verify all control systems are functional, according to their design intent
  • Make final adjustments to audio DSP settings and document

Generate Punch list

  • Create a punch list for all noted system discrepancies
  • Monitor the progress of the punch list until all discrepancies are resolved

Establish Substantial Completion

  • All preliminary tests have been completed, exceptions noted with proposed resolution
  • System installation is complete
  • The system is ready for final testing and alignment

Inspect, Test and Align

  • Objective testing is performed with system function and performance evaluated
  • Workmanship of the technical system installation is reviewed
  • Acoustic, video and optical systems are evaluated for conformity to the design specifications and meeting the objective tests for functionality
  • Discrepancies are noted and added to the punch list for resolution
  • Punch list items are completed and system is ready for end-user training

Train End-Users

  • Vendor training on specific equipment items is scheduled and performed
  • System documentation is presented and reviewed by end-user and/or owner’s technical management
  • System training is conducted on functional systems

Project Sign-Off

  • All punch list items are satisfactorily completed
  • All documentation has been delivered
  • System warranty period begins
