Office Equipment

ICP’s head office and bran­ches are sup­plied with sta­te- of-the-art office equip­ment com­pri­sing modern per­so­nal com­pu­ters, all necessa­ry user soft­ware.

Each work sta­ti­on has inter­net access, e-mail and is lin­ked via intra­net to all other work­sta­tions and to a com­mon data ser­ver.

CAD-work sta­ti­ons can be plot in color up to DIN A0 size. Our digi­ti­zer tablet digi­ti­zes plans of sizes up to DIN A0.
