Rob has extensive design experience with security and fire detection systems, as well as power distribution, power generators, and interior and exterior lighting systems. Some of Rob’s other projects involved multi-building campuses featuring integrated control and monitoring systems. Other challenging projects include data centers focusing on concurrent maintainability and maximum time on-line.  Rob’s design approach involves coordinating ease of use, ease of maintenance, and cost effectiveness for a product that results in flexibility to meet present expectations and future needs. Communications, teamwork, leadership, and followership are terms Rob uses to describe his participation on design teams and with clients.
