From higher education to healthcare research, corporate workplaces to cultural centers, organizations are turning to technology to streamline operations, improve productivity and enhance the user experience. A robust and reliable network has become an essential utility in facilities. Its importance will continue to grow, along with the growing reliance on interconnected systems and emerging technologies.

SmithGroup's Information and Communications Technology (ICT) team brings the latest knowledge of advanced technologies and processes focused on enhancing the building's performance and the user's experience. Integral to our interdisciplinary design ethos, the ICT team addresses our client’s current needs with future-focused solutions to support the evolving nature of systems and technologies. Working across the nation, the team has designed projects for clients such as Michigan State University, General Motors and Boston University. Given the complexity of visioning, planning, designing and constructing today’s buildings, having an ICT team involved from a project’s inception avoids costly delays and ensures optimal network connectivity.
