Austin & San Antonio, Texas
Plummer assisted the Zayo Group in their recent deployments of Fiber to approximately 100 cell towers within the Austin and San Antonio Market areas. To date, Plummer has successfully designed and permitted over 750,000 linear feet of new fiber network.
Plummer developed highly detailed designs requiring full civil design, pavement restorations, traffic control, subsurface utility engineering (SUE) and utility coordination. Designs also included detailed tree survey and environmental assessment impacts to critical water quality zones.
At the core of the project scope, Plummer was tasked with “Value Engineering” in which we performed route studies, feasibility planning to identify the “least costs” method of construction balanced with network resiliency. We identified project roadblocks such as long lead permits, bridge attachment feasibility options and schedule impacts and advised the client on mitigation plans.
During construction, Plummer was on call to quickly address design changes and expedite permitting to maintain construction continuity. Plummer also led multiple survey crews innovating new high-speed data collection processes. Estimated construction costs are approximately $45M.
Plummer assisted a major telecom provider with developing an Aerial to Underground Conversion Cost Study for approximately one mile of dense urban facilities.
This project included a half mile major realignment and reconstruction of street in a large city in Texas.
We design solutions to the world's greatest challenges. We're ready to take on any problems you may run into.
