Syracuse City Schools initiated a major consolidation program aimed at increasing efficiency and reducing costs across the district’s 45 schools. A key component of this effort included a $6 million contract to consolidate all school communications systems.
Under a $2.5 million contract, O’Connell installed and tested the voice and data telecommunications systems at 38 out of 45 Syracuse City schools, providing all project management, labor and materials. A pivotal piece of the project relied on O’Connell’s ability to staff and tool for the extensive structured cabling and raceway requirements, complete with wire mold and cable tray systems. Our fiber optic fusion splicing capabilities afforded another component of the project’s success. All told, the Syracuse City Schools project showcased O’Connell’s proficiency in tooling, equipping and resourcing a multiple site communications project on schedule and within budget.
