North Platte, NE, March 15, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Oldcastle Precast has announced the completion of a major Satellite Uplink Collocation Tier 2 facility located in North Platte, Nebraska. The project was a turnkey design-build facility constructed for Pinpoint Communications as well as designed to meet the collocation needs of a major satellite internet provider. The new facility provides the market’s #1 rated high speed satellite internet service and Pinpoint’s entire array of communications services to consumers and businesses in the region.
Pinpoint performed the planning, land acquisition and fiber engineering while Oldcastle Precast concurrently performed the design, engineering and manufacturing of the Maxi-Mod 3056 modular precast building for the Satellite Uplink facility. Upon permit approval, Oldcastle Precast prepared the remote field location, completed facility and satellite foundations and delivered a virtually complete 1680 square foot facility to the location within weeks and set the structure in only (1) one day. The quick turn-around permitted Pinpoint Communications as well as the major satellite internet provider to install and test their equipment allowing for go-live only (4) four weeks after the Oldcastle Precast facility was in place.
“Pinpoint had a very tight timeframe to get this building up and operational, and Oldcastle stepped up to the challenge. We could not have met the necessary timelines if not for the efforts of Oldcastle and their professional team,” stated Chris Karn, COO Pinpoint Holdings, Inc.
Constructed offsite in a quality controlled environment, the Maxi-Mod is designed as a virtually impenetrable shelter solution for highly sensitive and costly equipment whatever the seismic or loading requirements. The Maxi-Mod is a customizable product with a sustainable 50 year lifecycle that was delivered and outfitted with the following features: Energy Efficient and Impervious Walls and Ceilings, (3) Dedicated Rooms, Infrastructure Management Systems, Multi-Stage Cooling Systems, Redundant Utility and Power Systems, Clean Agent Fire Protection Systems and provided all the required system testing services prior to placement into service.
The Satellite Uplink Facility is up and operational and is successfully serving the needs of consumers and businesses in this region of the country. The strength and long-term durability of an Oldcastle Precast building will provide Pinpoint Communications and their customers with a safe and sustainable facility for many years in the future.
