Health Care Telcom Projects on the Rise
WBE Telcom Vice President Steven Bradley was the successful bidder to DPR Construction for Phase 1 on Floor 2 of National Health Care’s Data Center in Northern California. Our crew, which included 11 technicians, began work on the project in August of this year, with final inspections taking place mid-October. The $3 million project encompassed a long list of data installation that included 75 Wrightline Cabinets, which will house the data requirements on this floor.
The Health Care Organization, who relies heavily on their data, specified Systimax Lazrspeed/Teraspeed Fiber for this project, which is designed to operate over the entire wavelength range from 1280 nm to 1625 nm — removing the water peaks (high attenuation) in the 1400 nm window. This increases the useable wavelength range over conventional single mode fiber by more than 50%.
Project Manager, Kirk Chudzinski has been a vital part of WBE Telcom’s long standing relationship with this organization over the years. Kirk managed this phase of the project, while Foreman Steve Globe was the onsite lead. During the final inspection, Commscope’s Engineer Doug Hugill pointed out the “phenomenal” job Steve and his crew did on the 22,656 fiber ties. Steve’s crew included Chris Beltran, Eric Bern, Chris Kruger, Jacob Jones, Ryan Galloway, Dennis Dudics, Paul Gigliello Sr., Sam Coe, Alex Martinez & Jim Graf.
According to WBE CEO Leslie Murphy, “Relationships such as these are invaluable to us and our field crews do a great job at strengthening them.” Ms. Murphy personally thanked Steve for “…making WBE shine at the data center project!”
