Untangling Your World

COMMUNICATIONS INFRASTRUCTURE PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

If you’re a person who likes to be in control of your building, but you have no time to find out what telecom service providers (TSPs) are doing in your building, then this is the service for you. The communications infrastructure property management program controls your buildings’ communications infrastructure (CI) core spaces, ensures telecom codes, standards and regulations are followed, and frees you and your people from dealing with TSPs all together.

If you’re a TSP, you just got a fix for the common last-mile issues. Now, you can access the building right when you arrive, receive guidance to the building CI core spaces and your equipment and, when required, have plan reviews completed in days by a registered RCDD.

Legend says the griffin was known for being especially powerful and loyal. They were said to be amazing guardians of their owners’ treasures and priceless possessions; similarly, SPRECOM is an amazing guardian of a building’s CI.

CIPM PROGRAM

Communications Infrastructure (CI) refers to the cables, pathways, equipment and core spaces within a building that are used for distribution of those critical communication services to tenants and building systems. The Property Management (PM) aspect represents the comprehensive management attributes that a building has normally, but with a twist: our property management is fully focused on the building’s communications infrastructure.

As founders of the CIPM industry, Sprecom offers a unique solution that operates in any building type.  All CIPM programs are specifically tailored to meet our clients’ communications infrastructure needs, building by building, and provides building owners, managers and telecom service providers with a tangible outcome – control. Any building can have a CIPM program, which will give you control while ensuring the building’s communications infrastructure is telecommunication codes, standards, and regulations compliant.

SPRECOM is the leader in making CIPM services fair, transparent, and of significant value to building owners, managers, and telecommunication service providers in any building type.

OUR MISSION

To deliver quantifiable value nationally through our CIPM program.

CORE VALUES

Expertise: through continual learning. 

Openness: by listening and sharing.

Leadership: caring for those who follow.

PROGRAM BENEFITS

Government decisions* have made building owners solely responsible for their building’s CI Core Spaces. In combination with that, the demands on building owners’ and property managers’ time are ever-increasing and the skills required to maintain these complicated areas are becoming increasingly specialized.

SPRECOM’s CIPM Program is responsive to these needs and delivers the following benefits:

Increase in productivity and time through Sprecom’s Controlled Access service, while outsourcing CI related responsibilities to industry experts.

Your asset value is protected by ensuring that the condition of the building’s critical CI core spaces does not degrade over time but rather improves.

Management of the building owner’s liabilities to telecom codes, standards, and regulations.

100+ years of collective telecom experience and expertise in telecom code, standard and regulations.

Risk management through telecom occupational health and safety, operations, and security.

Experts in Intra (within the building) and Inter (operating from the building) contract negotiations ensure you are getting fair market value while protecting your asset.

Per regulations, the CIPM program can be partially offset by the telecom service providers and this fee is distributed equally amongst the providers.

Retain and attract tenants though well managed Communications Infrastructure by ensuring your buildings readiness for evolving CI technologies.
