As work on a U.S. Military base comes to a close, Alamon crews are doing finish work and ensuring all systems are operational in this turnkey project.
One of those final tasks was connecting offices, conference rooms, classrooms, and hangers to a new communications room and an existing one. That includes: pulling cable through conduit to jacks and patch panels, identifying & lacing cable, attaching jacks & faceplates, mounting racks & patch panels. Along the way we used a few tricks to work more efficiently, one of which was getting the cable ran through existing conduits.
Supplies: Pull String, Plastic Bag, Vacuum, Cable.
