Why do I really need an independent Bird Control consultant?
1. Because you can't get good answers when you don't even know the right questions to ask.
Remove confusion between manufacturers competing to be specified and installers who may not have all the best product knowledge.
2. You get someone whose interests are aligned with yours. This allows me to work with various top suppliers and help evaluate installer qualification criteria objectively.
3. Individual attention to your project through all phases, commitment to participate regularly scheduled calls, meetings, site visits, etc.
Can't I get everything I need from a product manufacturer or potential installer?
1. Manufacturers are hardly familiar with the intricacies (trickiness) of field installations. They pitch their product as "easy to install" to encourage more service providers to install them.
2. These people are motivated by how much stuff you need installed. They don't make money by showing you how to eliminate the need for their own products.
3. Installers want to do a job and do not have incentive to reduce or eliminate the need for deterrent systems
I act on your behalf using my expertise, product knowledge, and industry contacts to get you the best products at the best price. I manage the process from initial site survey to product selection, construction documents, purchasing, and quality assurance through installation.
Since no party takes liability for system success, it's important that someone think things through.
I know the things that have made installations more difficult and have degraded aesthetics and how integration with the rest of the project can alleviate such.
Example: You want an electric track system on exterior facade ledges, but don't know how it should best be powered. Solar? Units need to be hung which can either be unsightly or difficult to wire down from a rooftop to the exterior locations. Plug in? Where should the outlets go? How many will you need?
I know to put the plug in charger units in an internal maintenance closet and have the electrical contractor either run lead wire through conduit or use plenum rated wiring to bring power out to the exterior. I know how to calculate the maximum linear footages each charger has capacity to handle.
