Whether you’re wanting to get your pickle ball on, sample a variety of street-style food, or watch sporting events on a huge video wall, SERV in Overland Park, KS, has you covered.

What you don’t see when you relax over drinks at one of SERV’s open-air bars is all the careful coordination that goes into integrating the audiovisual (A/V), security, access, and technology systems that create a safe, convenient, and exciting experience for staff and customers.

That’s where P1 Building Technologies comes in. The P1 team installed and integrated all of the A/V, huge video boards, CCTV, access control, network infrastructure/fiber, and structured cabling.

The job came to P1 through a relationship P1 Client Development Manager Mark Rau had with owner company Launch Development.

The project began in Summer 2022, and was put to the ultimate test with its completion on Super Bowl Sunday - and it was a success!

Technologies Project Manager Travis Fleming notes this two-acre venue project is an impressive show of P1’s versatile technologies capabilities for several reasons.

“One of the biggest challenges on a comprehensive scope like this is coordination with the multiple manufacturers and distributors involved,” he said.

“On this project, that included Avigilon, the Assa Abloy family of products, Samsung, and the Pensar LED video boards.” 

“This includes interactive training, installation processes/programming, and exploring exactly what protocols they need us to provide on a network for their systems, all while overcoming procurement challenges,” Travis added.

Travis notes one of the most interesting parts of the completed project is that the technologies are controlled through an iPad, giving SERV staff the convenience of one integrated place from which to control access, manage camera systems, and control A/V interface, TVs, video boards, and sound systems.

“The integration – for these to all interact with one another - was a significant achievement,” Travis said.

Technologies Operations Manager Danny Farnan says the other exciting piece of this project is that it displays P1 Technologies’ versatility, from design to installation, and through completion.

“This has been a great opportunity for P1 Building Technologies to demonstrate our skill sets with many different systems and manufacturers – all within one project,” Danny said.

He says it also gave the Technologies team a chance to expand how they go to market and enhance their business approach as they move into the future.

“P1 Technologies provides diverse systems integration, and we continue to adapt to the fast pace of change in the technologies world,” Danny said.

“This was truly a group effort. Each team member shared their expertise to collectively bring this project to successful completion.”
