NETS Network Upgrade!
304 Telecommunication Outlets (TO's) each with 4-copper and 4-fiber connections were installed. 255,000 Feet of CAT6A copper cable were installed, over 48 miles. 60,000 Feet of Multi Mode OM4 fiber were installed, more than 11 miles 2432 station fiber terminations + 336 trunk fiber terminations were completed.
Install new, ground up, network in 3300 Mitchell Lane capable of supporting current and foreseeable networking needs in accordance with NETS, NCAB, UCAR/NCAR, BICSI, and federal, state, and local jurisdictions building codes.
A method to deliver a project in which the design and construction services are contracted by a single entity. It relies on a single point of responsibility and is used to minimize risks for the project owner and reduce the delivery schedule.
The design build can take the owner out of the loop by the contractor/designer making decisions that the owner should be involved in. In the more traditional Design-Bid-Build, Change Controls are more prevalent and keep the Owner more informed and there more involved in the project.

◦ Marking of facilities not to be demoed ◦ Temp (construction) network installation ◦ Relocation of Multi-use fiber to FLA ◦ Relocation of FLR(B) to FLA ◦ Preparing drawings for installation crew ◦ Order all parts for installation
NETS work during contractor work ◦ Monitoring contractor progress to ensure that network specifications were being adhered to ◦ Attending OAC Meeting to ensure that changes were not made that affected the NETS installation ◦ Scheduling NETS installation with other trades
Project installation followed construction progress ◦ installation of distributor [room] infrastructure (tray, racks, and cable managers) ◦ cable installation and termination ◦ Testing and documentation ◦ Coordination of people move information
Equipment installation followed construction progress ◦ installation of network equipment: Switches, VG242’s (analog), UPS’s, AP’s, Monitoring (Geese), Patch Cables ◦ Activation of network ports: Network, Analog, Special ◦ Verification of networks
The project schedule changed due to ◦ HVAC Design and Installation problems Installation of additional Ducting all floors Room remodel required on all floors Replace undersized fan on roof NETS Schedule ◦ Personnel then reassigned to other projects NWSC Marshall Ongoing normal WR’s
Previous occupants returning, few new phones needed AP’s already in update schedule Reusing the NETS Switches and UPS’s ◦ Not due for regular replacement ◦ Still under maintenance
Keeping the installation up to UCAR/NETS Standards when the scope of work changed ◦ Full remodel instead of partial ◦ Addition of Comm Outlets after budget set ◦ Multi-use fiber removal and replacement ◦ All new comm conduits throughout the building
Strong technical installation team UCAR/NETS Specifications All Product arrived on time Same electrical contractor as FLA
◦ Construction timeline Comm Rooms and Chases built first Always Promised Never Delivered ◦ Move Template Information The sooner the better From NETS sooner To NETS sooner
Comm Room size, minimum of 130 sq ft, prefer 150 sq ft Only straight sleeves in cores between floors Increase the number of cores between floors ◦ Increased size of cable Daily morning meetings kept the whole team informed to the ever changing Design build Project. This is critical for keeping ahead of a project of this size.
BAS on NETS cabling ◦ Building Automation Systems Becoming Industry Standard to use IP ◦ Space in our cores ◦ Space in our Comm Rooms This project was a design build ◦ Design and Construction done together ◦ Changes come fast and often ◦ Harder for NETS to remain within budget
Thanks to the NI Crew for all of the hard work and long hours that went into this project.
