Challenges:

Fiber and grounding system was to be installed as the General Contractor was finalizing the building construction and in a three month time frame. We beat the scheduled completion date.

Installation of Data Communications system cabling as the Owner was in the process of commissioning their equipment which meant that portions of the process was operable.

Installation of the Security and WIFI cabling systems while the plant was in operation which meant multiple shifts required to meet the schedule.
