The Technology-Forward Global Corporation Selects Vancouver Firm for Project X
AxisTech Services design and built a 20,000 square foot training outpost with numerous technical and structural challenges. The open-room team concept needed to be built in a condensed timeframe to accommodate the client’s expansion into Vancouver. The AxisTech four-man team logged 10+ hour days at six days per weeks to achieve this critical deadline and deliver the project within the budget submitted.
As the building progressed, the client’s need for further customization to the training facility quickly became an area of concern. Therefore, the evolving scope of the project required an immediate action plan from AxisTech team leader, Joana Barbulescu, Partner.
“The demanding networking environment at Project X was challenging for all teams involved. Working for a IT Infrastructure Multinational on their first training facility in Vancouver and delivering on our collective promises is cause for celebration.” – Bob Fedoruk, Partner
Key challenges of Project X also included the installation of 500 CAT 6 cables in a highly compressed timeline. The teams achieved these deliverables by installing Cable Tray and a Unistrut Grid in order to distribute cables to the work stations efficiently and effectively. Within each of the Communication Rooms (IDF), racking , cable trays and Fibre duct raceway were installed to support the high density of copper and fibre cables. The turn-key installation included the patching of 500 ports to Network Switches for a fully operational system. The unique solution reflects the Project X mission to inspire continuous improvement through an “unfinished industrial look”.
