John Larkin Featured in Security Sales & Integration Magazine

John Larkin, Senior Partner with Electronic Systems Consultants (#ESC_LLC) was featured in the December, 2014 issue of one of the security industry’s premier publications, Security Sales & Integration (http://bit.ly/23GuibM). The topic of conversation, service contracts, led John to share his thoughts when asked to sign a new client’s own contract.
“We like to provide our own terms and conditions with all of our contracts, and sometimes there will be occasions where these terms must be changed,” says John Larkin, senior partner with Electronic Systems Consultants of Columbus, Ohio. “When this happens it’s always done in face-to-face meetings where everyone concerned can agree on changes. If the situation escalates because of disagreements, then legal advice must be considered to move the contract forward”( How Alarm Dealers Can Raise the RMR Bar With Maintenance & Service Contracts, http://bit.ly/1maaP1e).
John has learned by experience, working in state-operated prisons throughout Ohio, that when signing any kind of service agreement that it’s necessary to know all the facts that can affect his firm’s success. At the core of this concern is the time it takes to stage service in these kinds of facilities, as well as the time it takes for a service crew to move from place to place within them.
“Our biggest concerns when working in the correctional industry is the additional time that must be accounted for when it comes to checking into the prison and the additional time it takes to get through our service/inspection because of the need to have escorts,” says Larkin. “When it comes to government facilities, you must always be concerned about getting in and out of sensitive areas. This must be planned out in advance with the end user to ensure you can provide a complete inspection or you’ll have to document what areas were not finished and the reasons why.”
It’s not every day that someone is featured in a prominent magazine of his/her peers. As an expert in security and life safety, John has had this distinction not once, but several times as the industry seeks the benefit of his experience and knowledge.

If you’re looking to install access, fire, video, or security, John Larkin can help you make the right choices for your application, situation, and budget. If you already have one or more of these systems in your facility and you’re looking to expand or change the equation, John Larkin can assist you in a variety of ways.

ESC's John Larkin Featured in Recent African American News Journal Article

John Larkin recently was featured in a well-done article in African American News Journal where he was quoted regarding his part in construction taking place at the Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML). Larkin’s company, a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) certified firm, recently won the contract for all fire alarm renovations, installations, and on-going service and inspections within the entire CML enterprise.

The following is a reproduction of this recent article by Nancy Tidwell, a Diversity & Inclusion Consultant expert.


Columbus Metropolitan Library is Serious About
Construction Project Diversity and Inclusion

By Nancy R. Tidwell

When the CEO of Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) first sat across the table from me in a meeting about construction and asked, “What do you think?” I knew I was in good company. Rarely does the owner’s top officer of any construction project sit at the same table with the diversity and inclusion consultant, much less ask for an opinion. This I can attest to after nearly 20 years of experience in the field.

It continued to happen time and time again as perceived wrinkles in the program were worked out and everyone including community advocates, library staff and construction management knew without a doubt that CEO Pat Losinski, backed by the CML Board of Trustees, is serious about diversity and inclusion. His concern is not commitment—it is “how” do we make it happen?

Pizzuti, the owner’s representative, is leading that charge and has already demonstrated that its team is bold enough to see the project through in achieving the desired results.

The project is off to a good start with the construction management team at Turner Construction keeping their eyes open for every opportunity to be inclusive. The first two bid packages exceeded the 20% MBE/WBE goal for contract awards and are committed to achieving 10% minority/6.9% female goal for employment.

When budgetary concerns led to shutting down Main Library during renovation, creativity came into play and “cut and cap” work was identified for mechanical, electrical and plumbing. All three were awarded to minority contractors—the local office of Coleman Spohn, DEH Electric and Clive Stephens Plumbing. With that same creativity, technology cabling for Main Library and six branch locations was divided up between three primes—Gudenkauf, which subcontracted 19% of its work to an MBE firm; U.S. Communications, a female-owned company; and Crossbow Systems, a minority-owned firm.

Perhaps one of the most significant contract awards thus far is the bulk purchase of a fire alarm system for Main Library and seven branches. Selected was Electronic Systems Consultants, a minority business enterprise owned by John Larkin.

“As a startup company in Central Ohio and the sole source provider for the library’s fire alarm and life safety system, we are very excited about the opportunity to be a part of this project. We are not only committed to providing a seamless installation but to developing a long-term relationship with the library,” stated Larkin.

CML’s diversity and inclusion effort doesn’t stop here. Job referral flyers have been posted in all of its locations in an effort to identify individuals in need of work who are also interested in construction. With a shortage of construction workers in the forecast, the project team will forward this information to contractors who are hiring. At the same time, every job referral form submitted will be responded to with information on employment resources and training, including apprenticeship programs. In addition, awarded contractors will be asked to consider the internship placement of local students pursuing a career in construction.

CML is in the midst of building five new libraries, renovating two and transforming its Main Library in downtown Columbus. Two earlier branches, Driving Park and Whitehall, were completed under a different delivery method. In order to facilitate a more effective diversity and inclusion process, the project delivery method for the remaining libraries was changed to Construction Manager at Risk.

One thing is clear though—it is the project owner that makes the difference in determining whether or not diversity and inclusion is taken seriously. In this case, Columbus Metropolitan Library is setting a precedent that will long be remembered.
