SMCiS Awarded Purchase Orders For Crown Castle Fiber LLC Project
It is with great pride that we announce that on May 7th of 2020, SMC Infrastructure Solutions was officially awarded purchase orders from Crown Castle Fiber LLC to construct both copper and fiber optic cabling infrastructure to serve multiple Hub locations and Small Cell Node sites throughout the Ward 5 sector of Northeast Washington, D.C.
SMCiS is excited to begin forging a working relationship with Crown Castle Fiber LLC as we share a mutual goal – to build communications infrastructure to advance connectivity in the ever-advancing technological world.
Charging Forward through the Global Pandemic
SMCiS is expected to start construction June 24th of 2020 despite the current global situation. SMCiS has implemented numerous safety precautions to keep employees safe while working in these unknown times. This project consists of several hundred thousand feet of aerial and underground cable placement to be constructed in small engineered segments that will encompass all the Ward 5 sector in the District of Columbia as a whole. Crown Castle Fiber LLC already holds many of the essential permits in place for this work along with a large portion of make-ready for aerial attachments and existing conduit pathways proofed.
Projects of this size often entail many change orders, and this project is no exception. SMCiS anticipates that there will be several changes in the scope of work, but following along with our mission, SMCiS is committed to providing the experience, capabilities, resources, and communication necessary to adapt to such changes in a way that will far surpass the needs and expectations of Crown Castle Fiber LLC.
