“Many thanks to all of you and your staff for assisting with this MLK celebration project. The use of the State owned Metro Area Network fiber giving us the ability to share this ceremony with all state employees and the public would not have been possible without this concentrated effort by all.  The set-up and tear-down went very smoothly, thanks to the professionalism and dedication of the people involved. Once again, proving what a great team we have in State Government Employees.  I look forward to our next opportunity to work together.

“DENR contracted with the Structured Cabling Services group from the Office of Information Technology Services to review the telecom infrastructure plans for the DENR building of the Green Square project.   A comprehensive review was performed, and the final building design incorporated many of the review’s comments and details.”

Jill Pafford
Green Square Project Manager
Office of the Secretary/NC DENR

 

“As a result of the quality of this first review‚ one month later DENR also requested this same team review the telecom plans for a second building, the Nature Research Center.   DENR and the architect’s telecom consultant believe these two reviews with resulting design recommendations will result in fewer issues and potentially fewer change orders with the construction project.”
