HID Facility

The Client

HID Global Headquarters- Austin Texas. HID started as a subsidiary of Hughes Aircraft in 1991 and since 2000 has been a key part of its parent company, Assa Abloy.  Assa Abloy boasts sales (2018) of $8.7B and over 45,000 employees.  HID Global is viewed as an industry leader in Access Control.

The Business Challenge

When HID Global began designing its HQ in Austin, they knew they needed a state-of-the-art showplace facility to host their key customers and partners. With 184,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space and 62,000 sq. ft. of office space, HID also needed strong physical and perimeter security to protect their government “Classified” activities.  This included a “Sally-Port” large enough to handle a Semi-Truck and Vaults that required “Dual-Authentication”.

The Business Solution

The opportunity to be selected as a Consultant for a major manufacturer is a real honor.  Working closely with key stakeholders and within the guidelines of strict requirements, TPI ensured that the strict security needs were met from a design and an implementation perspective.

As a “Show Place” facility, it was also critical to make sure that HIDs customers & partners had a great experience.  Whether in the training facility, meeting rooms or the Cafe’, a quality Audio/Visual experience can be the difference between a good and a bad meeting.  During design reviews, TPI discovered shortcomings that would have provided an inferior experience.  TPI worked closely with HID & their partners to ensure the high-quality expectations were fully met.
