Smart Building Company, OKTO Technologies has built an impressive national reputation for delivering ground-breaking concepts, new technology and Modern Methods of Construction that deliver fundamentally better designed – and radically better-connected projects. Clients who employ the Lisburn-based company benefit from a single point of contact, time and cost savings, and significantly less stress and risk for the contracting and development teams.
Read eight ways OKTO can remove your RISK:
1. Multi-disciplinary service – NO scope gaps, NO co-ordination issues, NO compatibility issues
OKTO understands that employing multiple subcontractors can result in unavoidable scope gaps, leading to a lack of consistency and quality, and the strong potential for programme and budget overrun. To avoid these issues, all services are provided by OKTO entirely in house. Each OKTO project has a single point of contact who is ultimately responsible to the contractor for all coordination and integration. A key part of OKTO’s ethos is to engage all their specialist in-house engineers to ensure scope gaps between disciplines are a thing of the past, and compatibility is no longer compromised.
2. 5 year warranty & 5 year service level agreement included
For complete peace of mind, OKTO systems come complete with a 5-year servicing and maintenance plan. This includes servicing, repairs, parts, maintenance and comes with call-out assistance. The warranty encompasses all OKTO components and labour to minimise any inconvenience to you during the warranty period.*
*Exclusions and conditions may apply.
3. Off-site Mirror Build of complete and operational system
The pressure on contractors to deliver on time without compromising quality is immense. To relieve this pressure, OKTO developed Mirror-Build™ – a FULL bespoke build and test of the entire technology system, all completed off-site. The OKTO team believes that the key to success is preparation and flexibility, which ensures every single solution is bespoke to each project.
4. Every system programmed, tested and commissioned off-site incl. OKTO’s 8 phase testing
By meticulously pre-planning each project, and by carrying out a full test installation off-site prior to actual site installation, OKTO can ensure that each component functions exactly as required and that there are absolutely no connection or control issues within the system as a whole, significantly reducing risk for their contractor and developer clients.
5. 66% reduction in installation programme
OKTO’s unique Mirror-Build process allows them to deliver completely snag-free systems, and means the company can guarantee to reduce the installation and commissioning programme for on-site active equipment by 66% compared to a traditional installation.
6. Fewer operatives on site
For the contractor, the thorough off-site pre-build and testing carried out by OKTO means less time and less operatives on the site. This in turn, minimises the impact of these works to other trades, reduces waste, costs, storage, labour requirements, prelims and makes the installation process significantly safer.
7. Employ one subcontractor not 9
Today’s smart buildings require the detailed interfacing, management and ultimate coordination of many diverse subcontractors that may each only specialise in a single discipline. Often this results in nine or ten separate subcontractor teams to manage and co-ordinate, with each subbie competing for access, space and time on site.
OKTO Technologies insists that it shouldn’t have to be this way. They offer a single team with full end-to-end responsibility and dedicated specialist in-house teams – no more dealing with nine different subcontractors.
8. Lifetime solution – Design, Production, Installation, Maintenance
OKTO’s single source solution means they are responsible for each and every aspect of the building systems – design, production, installation and maintenance for connected systems including BMS, EMS, security, lighting control, audiovisual, and IT, cabling and containment as well as wellness management with OKTOair. For each project OKTO provide a dedicated team consisting of unique specialists, the best engineers in the industry covering every aspect of the bespoke design and install of smart building technical systems – all under a single roof.
