Jetbuilt, the Newport Beach, Calif.-based provider of a global AV, security and IT project platform is adding engineering services with the addition of the Jetbuilt Engineering Lab (JEL). JEL provides access to CAD drawings, presale engineering, 3D renderings, REVIT and more as a solution for companies of all sizes.
According to the company, the service reduces the cost of hiring in-house personnel with the proper skill set, and allows experienced staff more effective use of their time.
After a project is designed in Jetbuilt, it can be shared with the JEL team along with notes, scope of work, and any relevant files, such as hand-drawn system flow, images and floor plans. The JEL team can also ask questions directly in the project’s Discussion thread and be given direction as needed for accuracy. Professional CAD drawings are created with respect to a company’s formatting preferences.
“In the context of a major labor shortage in the AV industry, the addition of JEL allows subscribers to scale their throughput to meet demand within the normal Jetbuilt workflow,” remarks Tom Peters, Jetbuilt director of business development. “I believe our subscribers will find JEL to be a very cost-effective addition to their operation.”
Jetbuilt says its proud to partner with AV Design Labs, “a highly regarded company used by many of the world’s most respected integrators, to bring JEL to the Jetbuilt platform.” Utilizing AVDL in tandem with Jetbuilt creates a seamless workflow within one platform, making Jetbuilt a comprehensive project solution from sales, design, estimating, rendering proposals and RFP’s, to managing installations.

“Our model of providing a dedicated staff that scales up and down based on the customer’s needs has been very popular,” says Sunil Botadra, VP of engineering for AVDL. “We’re excited to merge these services within the JEL Platform.”
With respect to Jetbuilt’s mission to reduce bottlenecks and create efficiencies in an integrator’s office, Jetbuilt Founder and CEO Paul Dexter remarks, “When it comes to technical documentation we wanted to do far more than build yet another drawing tool. We deliver those drawings and many more engineering services within a truly integrated solution.”
JEL is set to release in March. Jetbuilt will be exhibiting at ISE Barcelona May 10-13, 2022 and cavlo on May 11th in Nashville.
