Their challenge

In order to meet the district’s developing needs, leadership decided to undertake a $96 million overhaul that would involve upgrades to structured cabling, school communications, classroom audio/video, CCTV, access control, network infrastructure, and the bus GPS locating system, as well as technology infrastructure for multiple new facilities in the district. In order to successfully complete these upgrades within schedule and budget constraints, the district needed a highly organized, responsible engineering partner. They chose Salas O’Brien.

Our solution

Our team’s design comprised an estimated 12 million feet of category 6 cabling, 3,000 wireless points, 5,000 PA speakers, 2,500 cameras, and 450 retrofitted doors for card access. The district’s new constructions included four new middle schools, a new CTE high school, three ground-up rebuilds of current elementary schools, and a new transportation facility. Our team handled the technology for each of these new constructions, and we were also involved in the planning of a new high school, a ninth grade center, and early college and elementary school prototypes.
