Fairfield University – Outside Plant and Telecommunications Vault Relocation, Fairfield Connecticut
The project required the evaluation of existing conditions and eventual design for the relocation of a telecommunications vault and conduit system relocated to a new maintenance hole and conduit routes to enable the construction of a new Dormitory building. The telecommunications vault supported various communication services to most campus buildings to include Fiber Optic LAN/WAN, Voice (Fiber Optic/Copper), Cellular, CATV, and Fire Alarm (Fiber Optic/Copper) cabling. The project required the relocation of all active services to a new maintenance hole, the removal of abandoned cabling and the shut down and re-activation of active circuits for Fairfield University connections, the Community Access Television and multiple Cellular Service Providers. The Skyline Group worked to augment the Fairfield University staff in conjunction with their respective contractors and service providers to determine all cable media to be replaced, removed and/or relocated and the restoration of services to normal operations.
