We cannot be emphasized enough the importance of good documentation. At Bluewire we focus on what we know, low-voltage systems, and that includes structured cabling, fibre optic, audio visual, security and surveillance systems (to name a few). These systems all run on multiple cable drop locations, often in numbers that are far more significant and complex than other trades. Due to the sheer volume of cables, it is recommended to keep precise records as well as have a strategy pre-installation– cue Redline Plan™ by Bluewire.

Our consulting services help you accurately plan out your build by marking-up your site plans (blueprints). These construction-prints become an installation guide for contractors and a reference document for your information technology (IT) personnel in the future. This is particularly useful for large installation facilities like municipalities, schools, and hospitals, where a good set of data plans will change the outcome of the project. Detailed record keeping can reduce down-time and overall costs. No project is too big or too small for a Redline Plan™, as there is no replacement for a professional installation plan.

OUR DESIGN

Your blueprints become your structured cabling data plans with Redline Plan™ by Bluewire. The first step is filling out the form below. We’ll need to know some brief details about your project. The information provided will be used to give you an estimated cost. We will then ask for a copy of your construction drawings. Begin by clicking the button below, so we can get to work for you!
Your Plan

Our consulting process carefully follows our structured wiring installation process. Much like our network cabling, our plans are neat, orderly, precise and easy to follow.

All Redline Plan™ projects receive the same care and attention to detail that our clients are familiar with. You can expect each cable drop location to be labelled with a wire tag. This marker should be used by your installer in the field, all cable labels should match location markers upon the final handover. Should there be any moves, adds or changes (MACs) you can contact us to revise your plans for a nominal fee.

In addition to wire labels, we use predictive technology to plot an approximate cable path for your installer. Keep in mind this is an estimated location and may vary greatly upon installation due to construction constraints, other trades, or contractor cabling preference and practices. We will also outline important notes on your blueprints so that your contractor will give them extra scrutiny. The installers should carefully review all the details of your plans prior to submitting their bid to you or beginning work on site. Our data plans are a guide and should be followed as such. We do not take responsibility for all site details as we can only draw attention to what we consider important information with the provided blueprints.

Each set of construction drawings are unique and require a different time commitment. We try our best to have your plans ready in 5-7 business days. Simply follow the form below, you’ll need to know how many cable drops you have before you begin. We will get to work making sure your request is filled in the order it was received. By request, we can also print plans or create wire wraps for you, standard shipping charges and delivery times apply.

REDLINE PLAN™

Structured Cabling Consulting Services Vancouver

Redline Plan™ by Bluewire is a consulting services and construction plan design company specializing in low voltage wiring diagrams.

Clients can send their digitally marked-up Redline Plan™ by Bluewire to contractors to obtain accurate and consistent pricing with little error as all cabling locations are precisely plotted out and marked with a wire label. It should be noted here that the installation contractor should follow the wiring diagram explicitly, including labelling all cables, outlets etc., as indicated in plans to obtain the desired results.

Redlines:  are original drawings that have been “red-lined” or marked-up to reflect the changes that have been made during the construction/installation process.

As-builts: are a representation of a building or space as it has been or was actually constructed.

Based on the above definitions of Redlines vs As-Builts. You can see that Redlines are more of a working set of plans and not the finished product. To capture changes as they happen during a project, drawings are “red-lined” sometimes in red (or whatever’s handy). These mark-ups reflect what is actually installed onsite – learn more about architectural drawings on Wikipedia.

That does not mean that a proper set of Redlines cannot be an As-built. In fact, it is recommended to mark-up drawings as accurately as possible so that final As-built submission is an efficient process with as little changes required as possible. Redline Plan™ by Bluewire are the control sequence of how a project is implemented, this is the first step to a successful build.
