Oldcastle Precast Supplies Precast Products for Camp Pendleton Upgrades


Oldcastle Precast supplies precast products for Camp Pendletonís new $103.4 million base-wide communications and electrical systems upgrades.

Littleton, CO, November 04, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Oldcastle Precast, a leading U.S. precast concrete manufacturer, is in the process of manufacturing and installing four hundred and sixty one precast concrete manholes and pull boxes for the communication system upgrades at Camp Pendleton, California as part of the United States Marine Corps $103.4 million base wide utilities infrastructure upgrades. The $54 million communications upgrade will improve connectivity and provide critical support to other projects on the base.

The joint venture (JV) of RQ Construction and Bergelectric (RQ-BERG) awarded Oldcastle Precast the contract for the 461, six foot by twelve foot by seven foot, precast concrete manholes of which 105 will have a McGard Fibershield locking frame and cover for added security. Communication manholes serve as conduit termination points for both fiber optic and copper wire cables. The manholes facilitate the pulling of cable through conduit, provide a secure space for cable splicing, and enable the redirection of cable away from the manhole. All of the precast concrete manholes are outfitted with galvanized racking, ladder and steps.

RQ-BERG, as part of the URS GMAC Team, is overseeing the $54 million communications upgrades and the $49.4 million electrical upgrades. In all RQ-BERG is organizing and supervising the installation of 47 miles of underground communication duct bank, 38 miles of copper wire, 50 miles of fiber optic cable, 461 precast concrete manholes, more than 85 miles of overhead transmission lines and more than 2000 new power poles.

The communications and electrical upgrades are scheduled to be completed by March 2013.
