Technology Consulting

Clients are increasingly utilizing technology to improve quality of life for seniors, provide new classroom experiences for students and achieve improved efficiencies for day-to-day operations. Much of this technology is going wireless, which means that an effective infrastructure is critical for these systems to operate efficiently and reliably and ultimately provide a positive end user experience.

RLPS can provide services to evaluate needs for coverage, capacity, and the cabling infrastructure that supports your wireless network. Under the direction of Brian Crosby, our in-house director of technology, we can review existing network, telephone and audiovisual systems and subsequently provide recommendations regarding Information Technology (IT) needs and specifications.

 


Virtual Reality (VR) & Augmented Reality

RLPS now offers virtual reality (VR)  and augmented reality (AR) immersive viewing experiences. These new technologies, accessible via a viewer are valuable tools for illustrating design concepts by enabling users to immerse themselves in a space. The basic viewer, used with any smart phone and a digital application through which we pre-load images, provides an enhanced experience for visualizing design concepts.


3D Printing & Photorealistic Renderings & Fly-throughs

RLPS is continually expanding its knowledge and resources to support our clients’ efforts related to fundraising and sales as well as communication of planned construction to public constituents, staff members and community residents. Our design team utilizes a wide range of software resources to illustrate design concepts, vernacular, building massing and views. This includes a 3D printer to efficiently produce a physical model that is particularly helpful when developing new sites.

 


Laser Scanning and Existing Condition Documentation

RLPS has added Laser Scanning and Point Cloud modeling to our portfolio of services.  Laser scanning enables us to assist clients with obtaining accurate existing conditions of buildings that need to be renovated or documented. By using the laser scanner, we can minimize errors and redundant field measurements leading to a better overall deliverable when documenting existing conditions.
