Control Systems Project Manager
Brandon manages the installation of leading-edge fire alarm, mass notification, access control, security, and closed-circuit television systems that make clients’ premises safer and more secure. Working with clients, he evaluates their facilities and assesses their requirements. He then designs effective solutions, and prepares proposals and estimates that address clients’ needs. Once a project has been approved, he oversees the purchasing process to obtain requisite manpower and materials, develops schedules, performs continuous budget and quality control, and manages the project through to completion and turnover to the client. Throughout the process, Brandon’s objective is to give clients the peace of mind that comes from knowing their facilities are safe and their business’s continuity is protected.
