The first major infrastructure work was going to be a litmus test for the remaining underground work that was planned. When construction ended a month ahead of schedule it established a benchmark by which we were able to set standards, protocols, and procedures more effectively for the next phases of underground work.
Relocated incoming communications (Verizon) services for cabling and equipment to improve telephone/data services and to facilitate the completion of future master planned projects. The scope of the project included:
- Verizon cabling and equipment relocation
- relocation of campus fire alarm cabling
- new & rerouted campus communications cabling
- landscape & hardscape patch and repair
The revised main Verizon cabling used existing communication manholes along the primary campus road, while some of the existing distribution cabling was rerouted through new duct banks located outside future building development sites. Verizon equipment was relocated to a new building location - LADM MPOE.
This was an operating community college campus during the construction of this project. The work of our team included management of the design process with a particular focus on providing the most effective final design solutions while maintaining full services and safe campus access for students, staff, and visitors. Our Team worked collaboratively with campus personnel, the design team, the construction manager, and the contractors to ensure both a successful process as well as a successful completed project.
