Who we serve...

Comp-Utility Corporation (CUC) is a facilities engineering and construction company specializing in design and construction of network operation centers (NOCs), data centers, computer rooms, and telecom facilities. Our customer base includes information systems and telecom executives, facilities engineers, architects, and contractors. Our geographic area is unlimited. Click here to see our client list.

What we do...

We make your life easier by minimizing your facilities headaches. We understand how difficult and time-consuming it is to select the appropriate equipment and software for a reliable network - without the additional worries of power outages, overheating, space utilization, and poorly marked cabling systems. We find most companies' interests lie in network components and software selection. We provide mission-critical infrastructures that are friendly to network equipment, so you can focus on the parts of the system you know best and leave the headaches to us.

More specifically, what we do...

  • Power, cooling and cabling solutions for the smallest rack to the largest data center.
  • Pre-sales technical expertise to specify the project with the right, most cost effective solution for the customer
  • Turnkey electrical engineering, installation and supervision
  • World class, local, dedicated service engineers for start-up and post-sales service

Applications we look for:

  • IT Clients looking for turnkey solutions
  • IT Clients with data centers including replacement of older systems and efficiency upgrades
  • IT Clients prime for consolidation – many small units converted to mid-range or larger systems
  • Roll-outs/refresh networking gear (campuses of ISD's, hospitals, retail, companies with multiple sites)
  • Green initiatives (improve efficiency, reduce heat dissipation, and save on utility bills)
  • Annuity Business (service agreements, battery replacement, modular upgrades)

Topics of discussion:

  • Are you tasked with increasing efficiency?
  • Are you out of power or space?
  • Are you being asked for consumption and efficiency reports ?
  • Do you need to monitor distributed systems at multiple locations from one screen shot?
  • Do you need more power to your racks?
  • Do you have hot spots?
  • Do you need your power monitoring plugged into VMware?

CUC's turnkey facility-related engineering, products, and services include:

Your goal is to have a well-designed, coordinated, fully functional, and reliable network. We bring you the facilities expertise to help you achieve this goal.

How we do it...

With our buying power, CUC maintains strategic partnerships with leading industry manufacturers of data center support equipment, components, and services. These are independent relationships, not guided by quotas or sales goals. We take great pride in our reputation for determining the right equipment for each project -- and that guides our purchasing recommendations to our customers.

Upon receiving an inquiry, a Project Engineer is assigned to quickly guide the customer through the process of project definition. These client-oriented professionals act as the client's advocate, interfacing with CUC management, its manufacturers and installation crafts. This puts an expert in your pocket for resolving any site issues effectively and expeditiously. The project may involve a single UPS, or an entire data center construction project - in either case, our goal is to simplify your complex decisions.

We are involved in every phase of the purchasing process. We track shipments, even accept deliveries and store equipment and materials, if necessary. We also perform in-house installation services with a trained staff of craftsmen who believe in their work. We are hands-on project managers and speed up the construction process by thinking ahead. We also offer service plans to maintain equipment in future years.

Company Profile...

CUC is privately held and was formed in 1992 by Randy Collier (President). Working in the industry since 1984, Randy's experience includes thousands of network installations. He is a graduate of the Engineering School of The University of Texas-Austin (BSME, 1983), a Registered Professional Engineer in Texas, and manages the company's activities to those exacting standards. 

Larry Knapp, our Field Supervisor was hired at the inception of the company. Larry's construction, moving and maintenance experience dates back to the 1970's. He is cross-trained on all of the products that we offer and has first-hand knowledge of the critical nature of network equipment and computer operations

CUC's installation team has been assembled from some of the industry's finest craftsmen, each chosen for their own specialized technical ability and expertise. Our people are timely and efficient. They are cross-trained in the field and have attended training courses with some of the best manufacturers and service organizations in our industry. They pride themselves in  a job well done and on time.

All of us here at CUC strive to recognize and evaluate requirements of the job to provide a complete package of products and services designed to keep your systems running. We have a sincere interest in providing our clients with prompt, professional, accurate information and technical assistance that reaches beyond the customary contractor's or supplier's technique.

Why use Comp-Utility?

Comp-Utility (CUC) is uniquely qualified to provide stable and reliable infrastructures and components. Our experience includes designing and installing some of the most mission critical network operation centers (NOCs), data centers, computer rooms and telecom facilities in the world.

It is imperative that support equipment, cabling systems, and cabinetry act as a system - and we guarantee compatibility. We pledge thoughtful operation of the system and expert advice on its day-to-day operation and future maintenance requirements. We promise you that in a side-by-side comparison, we provide a product no one else offers.

From the date of receipt of the request for quotation through the life of the systems, we will ensure accurate technical information and professionalism, not typically found with the average suppliers of these systems. Our trademark is implementing systems that reduce problems, very often to the point of eliminating the problems entirely.
