Building Services - Mike Barker

At Mike Barker and Associates we aim to redefine what to expect from monitoring and control of your heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment. We put into perfect balance your building’s occupant needs, operational issues and budget pressures. You as the client will get an unmatched solution that helps simplify facility management, boost productivity and reduce costs.

Security Systems

CCTV - Surveillance solutions permit truly intelligent recording, enabling the user to specify what types of recordings they require captured and when. Recorded images can include not only the incident, but also what happened immediately before and after, providing you with a complete picture to enhance your investigation process and outcome.

Leading surveillance solutions integrate seamlessly with the security and life-safety, promoting effective management of information and intelligence. TCP/IP architecture allows for the use of digital cameras taking full advantage of the client’s existing enterprise network structure, making it possible to locate and relocate cameras anywhere in the building’s network. Network cameras eliminate the need to lay dedicated coaxial cable, make use of power over Ethernet, offer megapixel resolution and integrated PTZ and audio control and secure communication through encryption.


Audio Visual Systems

As the information age expands, more and more companies find themselves engaged solely in the exchange of ideas or information. Indeed many companies and the individuals within those companies are judged on their ability to make a presentation. It is to that end, that Audio Visual Systems, Inc. is dedicated.

Our mission to help every client look his/her best whether in the board room, training room, conference room or on the front lines in front of a prospect. When your presentation requirements call for an installed audio-visual system at your facilities, a rental system in a hotel or the tools needed by today's road warrior, Audio Visual Systems will be there for you.


Building Management Systems

Building Management Systems (BMS) have been employed for as long as commercial buildings have existed, whether this be through manpower loading coal into coal fired boilers or opening water pipe valves manually with the use of a handle so to enable heated water to flow through a radiator circuit. However, "BMS" as a phrase, is relatively new (the past 20 years or so); the phrase has only really existed since the introduction of complex electronic devices that are capable of retaining data for the purposes of managing services such as power, lighting, heating and so on. Before the modern, computer-controlled BMSs came into being, various electromechanical systems were in use to control buildings. Many facilities management offices had panels consisting of manual switches or more commonly, lights showing the status of various items of plant, allowing building maintenance staff to react if something failed. Some of these systems also include an audible alarm.

Fire Systems

Fire Systems technology is a necessity in order to ensure the safety of building occupants, as well as assets. In a critical situation it is important to have early warning, the relevant information and the ability to control your environment. Fire Detection comprises various application specific devices that are deployed in fire sensitive areas and which activate an alarm in the event a fire is detected. Once a fire has been detected Fire Suppression occurs. This involves the deployment of gas which extinguishes the fire. More recent technologies are environment-friendly and people-safe
