I asked a colleague who is in that line of work and he wrote this:

Not really that much to go on there. "Access system integration" could be anything and there are about 50 different directions to go.
If $4400 is brand new from the ground up they can't be getting anything good.
I'm going to assume that the building already has a card access system in it, and that $4400 is to add two doors to it.
A door "dress out" is usually a maglock, PIR sensor, card reader, emergency exit button.  $2200 per door is not that bad.  I don't know the labor rates of the area which is usually the bulk of the cost and probably using a low security 150lb mag lock.  (they keep the honest people out)
We usually ballpark about $3k per door

If he knows of anyone in your area to suggest, I'll contact you off-list.

A question for those of you who have ID card lab access control.  Do you have it in all labs within a building?  What company did you use?   A researcher would like to install this system in a lab that has two doors and he/she was given a quote for $4400 (Access System Integration).  

If you have any familiarity with these systems of access control, please email me off-line at yamy**At_Symbol_Here**

Thanks,   Yamy
