Design and specification experts with an unparalleled ability to enhance your project team!

Clients, architects, owners’ representatives, contractors, and project managers attest to our
reputation for excellent service and outstanding credentials…

Layne Consultants International (LCI) electronic and physical security system design projects begin with the client conference, to determine the requirements and scope of the project. A detailed survey is generally recommended to determine additional need or status of existing security systems. The completed survey provides a general guideline for the actual design of the proposed system.

LCI employs experienced professionals in each area of specialization required to complete a security design project. Our associates include professional engineers, certified fire protection specialists, communications specialists, and other consultants with extensive experience in the design and specification of electronic security and fire systems.

Our design projects often include the preparation of security and fire system specification and bid documents. We also offer our assistance in the selection of qualified vendors, conducting pre-bid vendor conferences, supervision of system installation, and final inspection of project completion.

LCI brings to each client our sound reputation for service and reliability. Except where specifically requested to protect the confidentiality of a project, we provide a complete list of previous clients for reference information. We're proud of our relationship with clientele, which continues long after the completion of a project.

Security design projects performed by LCI include executive residences, multi-residential facilities, manufacturing and industrial facilities, cultural institutions, educational institutions, commercial complexes, health care institutions, office structures, financial institutions, government complexes and much more. We consider our engineering associates to be the "best in the business", and our clientele regularly verify that statement.

We have significant experience in the use of access control systems, video surveillance and recording systems, fire protection/detection systems, communications systems, intrusion detection systems, control center design, and special situation systems. We have complete security engineering design and AutoCad drafting expertise. As independent (non-product affiliated) consultants, we have extensive product knowledge from a wide range of technologically advanced systems.

Our fees are based on the time necessary to survey and determine the needs of the project, engineer and specify the system components, complete engineered drawings, and present information. A "not to exceed" or package fee is offered, along with a close estimate of actual expenses necessary for travel and accommodations. Only those expenses authorized in our pre-project conference are included. Clients often tell us we offer more quality and quantity at a reasonable fee than many competitors.

LCI is proud of its strategic alliances with several leading firms, offering the highest quality engineering and consulting solutions to clients in the United States and abroad. These alliances allow us to expand our support base for projects now taking us throughout the globe. While significantly improving our ability to provide the best in system evaluation, design, and specification, we're not changing players, but adding to the team. Our same reliable design teams remain involved in direct management of all design projects.
