A new construction project that involved a unique laboratory and open ceiling installation requirements.
As part of a multi-year plan to improve its campus facilities, Carroll University replaced an aging facility with the new, state-of-the-art Michael and Mary Jaharis Science Laboratories building, which opened for the 2016 academic year.
CC&N designed a unique cabling plan for classrooms, general-use areas and laboratory needs using the CommScope-Systemax 1071 copper cabling infrastructure system. A unique challenge was presented by the open ceiling architecture. Special care was required to aesthetically mount and route the cable around other system components in the ceiling. Connectivity to other campus buildings involved boring and excavating to connect 72 strands of fiber to that existing fiber network that runs through-out the university campus.
Additionally, the CC&N installation team provided connectivity for other systems that included:
- Access Control system/card readers
- Surveillance cameras
- Mechanical systems
- Wireless Access Points
- Student Services systems
- Instructional devices
