RMF Engineering launches A/V-Telecomm Group
Paul Bruckman will head the group’s operations with the support of nine electrical staff.
RMF Engineering launched its audio/visual (A/V) and telecommunications group to support the building market’s growing need for efficient, cost-effective, and future-ready systems. The group will offer full-scale, in-house A/V and telecomm services. The A/V-Telecomm Group is based out of RMF’s Raleigh, N.C. office, and will serve clients across the U.S. and abroad.
Tim Griffin, RMF division manager in Raleigh, said, “For the past 12 years, our North Carolina office has garnered extensive expertise in telecomm design and implementation, as well as A/V support. Now, with the launch of our A/V-Telecomm Group, we are giving our clients and architecture partners a more holistic service offering from design through implementation in both the A/V and telecommunications capacities. From fiber optics and structure cabling to projection systems and teleconferencing, our new division will bring all services under one roof, making for stronger all-around design and project coordination, and serving as a strategic complement to our traditional MEP services.”
Paul Bruckman, electrical designer at RMF’s Raleigh office, will head the new group, backed by a team of electrical support staff. Bruckman, a Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD) and a Certified Technology Specialist Designer (CTS-D), has extensive experience in the field of electrical power distribution, uninterruptible power supply, interior and exterior lighting systems, fire alarm systems, security and emergency power generation, and data communication systems serving educational, healthcare, and government projects, including mission critical assignments. His design experience encompasses all phases of project design from survey through construction administration of both renovation and new projects.
Bruckman earned his CTS-D certification from InfoComm International and his RCDD from BICSI. The certifications acknowledge Bruckman as highly qualified and trained to provide A/V and telecomm design and engineering.
