The project encompassed evaluation of the existing communications infrastructure, recommendations for upgrades to the outside plant, structured cabling system and wireless coverage.  Based on the design documents created, budgetary estimates were produced and subsequently design modifications to meet budgetary requirements.  Contractor bids were reviewed and evaluated for accuracy and reasonableness.  Through the bidding process contractor questions were addressed and alignment between design and contractor scope was verified.  Planned network upgrades by the Department of Health Services (DHS) were integrated into the design model, cooling requirements and new telecommunication room design.
