Foley Hoag LLP (FH), Boston, Massachusetts
Foley Hoag LLP, Boston Ma. Tech
Foley Hoag LLP is a prestigious law firm located in downtown Boston. After years of residing in PO Square, FH decided to relocate to the new tower in the Seaport District of Boston, known as World Trade Center West.
The new location consists of approximately 6-2/3 floors or about 220,000 square feet, located on the 11th through the 17th floor of the World Trade Center West Building. Within this impressive space, John and his team designed the Tel/Data systems in the open and enclosed offices, conference rooms, computer room, main telephone equipment room, satellite Tel/data rooms, training rooms and lower level storage spaces.
At the time of planning the move, FH intended to move their existing PBX and all the handsets to the new facility over a weekend. The assessment of the existing system included documenting all the existing components of the Nortel SL1 Telephone system. After this assessment and discussions with FH, the team decided to design a new system and purchase a new PBX instead of moving the existing system. John and his team created the RFP for the procurement of the PBX and associated services, reviewed and ranked the proposals and recommended a vendor who best fit FH current and future voice system requirements.
As part of the project we also created structured cabling drawings and specifications to accommodate the present and future bandwidth and application requirements.
