Overview

Home to 19,000 students residing in south San Diego county, the Southwestern Community College District (SWCCD) spans 163 acres plus offsite locations throughout the county. SWCCD consistently ranks in the top 100 of the 1,100 community colleges nationwide with the number of associate degrees offered.

Scope

The SWCCD IT infrastructure team desired to implement a set of standards for new construction and retrofit projects. To address this, Exante360 was tasked with creating standards and CSI specifications for their Security and Audiovisual disciplines to be used on all future projects. In order to achieve the project’s goal, a District-wide field assessment of the video surveillance, intrusion detection, and audiovisual systems was performed. Interviews with key operational stakeholders were also performed. The results of the assessment and interviews resulted in an executive report which paved the way for the final deliverable – a set of standards and specifications for Communications (ICT), Security, and Audiovisual systems that will be used for all new construction and retrofit upgrade projects for the College.
