IT Infrastructure Support for Major Convention Center

Project Description

A major Convention Center requires a full-service IT Consultant, to operate and maintain the Center’s IT function, including the transition of the Center’s offices to a newly constructed office space. Approximately 40 – 50 staff of varying disciplines, including accounting and construction management, will be relocated to a 15,000 square foot open office space across the street from the current location.

Project Goals

The Center partnered with SDI to provide full-service Information Technology (IT) Consultant services to operate and maintain the Center’s IT function, including the transition of the Center’s offices to a newly constructed office space. The Authority requires that all Services of the Consultant be performed with that degree of skill, care, and diligence normally shown by a professional performing service of comparable scope, purpose, and magnitude.

The schedule for move-in in the Fall of 2019. Once the new office space is established, the Consultant will undertake the complete management of all IT Infrastructure support.
