Going Where the Technology Is (Part II) P1 Building Technologies

P1 Building Technologies

Understanding Building Technologies

P1 Group's Building Technologies (BT) division may focus on a specific need, such as a sound system for a school or security system for a manufacturing facility. But it can also cover a much greater expanse, such as Low Voltage systems for an entire campus.

The following projects illustrate the diversity of P1 BT capabilities.

All Technologies for T-Mobile

P1 Group TMobile Renovation

A portion of what was once the sprawling Sprint HQ campus in Overland Park, KS now belongs to T-Mobile, who is renovating and modernizing several of the buildings.

The campus, now known as ASPIRIA, is frequently in the news as major companies make plans to plant offices in the modernized office and mixed-use space.

In Part I of this story, we brought you the “Big 3” BT capabilities. Recently, P1 put all three to work on the four newly renovated T-Mobile office buildings.

Sight and Sound for Lee’s Summit High School

Early in 2021, Building Technologies was awarded the Audio Visual contract for a three year remodel project at the existing high school that will include a high-end sound system for both gymnasiums, and a broadcast studio with technology for the students to do live broadcasts of football, basketball, athletics, and performing arts productions. There are nine (9) individual AV projects to be installed over the construction cycle.

Single Source for Mars Wrigley

In 2021, P1 upgraded Mars’ entire security camera system and Building Technologies is currently work on upgrading their access control for 83 doors and adding an additional 73 new door locations. While working with Mars Wrigley engineers, the Building Technologies group identified an opportunity for the P1 Millwright division to build new walls, entry doors, and food-grade fencing/gate within the facility. Additionally, P1 Electrical will provide the food-grade conduit pathway for all the new systems.
