BDA Maintenance Contract and Recertification for public safety DAS is an aspect that catches many building owners and general contractors off-guard.
As of 2018 Municipalities are adopting and enforcing NFPA/ICC regulations quickly, as well as their own AHJ additions for BDA maintenance and recertification. New mandates are making response times of critical system events require a two (2) hour response time, and annual re-certifications a clear must. A building owner must have a yearly BDA Maintenance contract in place with a qualified contractor. National Data Contractor brings a unique one stop approach to this soon to be demanding and complicated mandate by offering a BDA maintenance contract, BDA Monitoring services, and extended component warranties under the same roof that can design and install your system.
The BDA maintenance chart below shows the plans that we offer. We are currently offering these contracts in Florida and California, with expansion to other states in the very near future. We carry a Florida electrical license and a California C7, and are FCC licensed and OSHA certified. Our BDA Maintenance contract is in coordination with the manufacturers, as we work with them directly to ensure you get a properly executed bda maintenance contract.
Why BDA inspection and Recertification? For all new clients we will need to inspect the system for proper installation in order to attach one of our Maintenance plans to your system. We also take a detailed inventory of your system components in order to properly access what bda maintenance plan we can offer. BDA Recertification is part of the regulatory process to ensure your building is complaint with local and state authorities, and is known as bda acceptance testing. Failure to comply can and most likely will result in fines, and even the possibility of the fire department refusing to service your building under certain circumstances. Their lives, as well as yours and your tenants very much depend on your compliance to these rules.
Property owners and building managers rarely have any contact with the original company that installed the BDA system, and even less if the building has changed ownership. The majority of contractors do not offer maintenance plans so owners find themselves searching to find someone to make them compliant immediately. The costs are usually higher for one time or year to year services, but that still leaves them without an actual bda maintenance contract, which is mandated. For this reason NDC is offering maintenance Contracts with incentives that will save valuable dollars and valuable time.
Let NDC re-inspect, re-certifiy, and offer you a top notch maintenance contract that will keep you compliant, keep your troubles away, and keep a bit more money in your pocket.
