Life Safety and Automation Design Institute (CLADI)
CLADI was created in
2004 to serve the communications, life safety, and automation
(CLA) industries. Although the term CLA is relatively new, the
various industries are not. In fact, CLA
systems are established and essential elements in the life
of a modern commercial building.
All commercial buildings
contain separate systems and accompanying infrastructure to transport
energy and information. CLA systems transport information.
CLADI was formed to:
- Help CLA consultants
integrate into the construction process by providing information,
design tools, and discussion forums.
- Create awareness
of CLA industry expertise within the building design and construction
- Broker relationships
between associations and manufacturers throughout the industry.
- Establish a broadbased
CLA industry design certification.
CLADI is a partnership
and cooperative effort involving associations and manufacturers
from all areas of the CLA industries. The CLADI Web site is maintained
by BICSI (www.bicsi.org).
