Work has begun on California State University, Bakersfield’s telecommunications infrastructure project, funded by Proposition 47, the school bond measure passed by voters in November 2002.
AMI Electrical & Telecom, Inc., of Anaheim is the contractor for the $5.34 million project that is expected to take a year to complete. The project is to upgrade the telecommunications infrastructure in all state-owned buildings on campus.
“This project will allow us to bring modern network capabilities to every user,” said Mike Neal, CSUB vice president for business and administrative services. “When the project is completed we will have modern network electronics, modern fiber optics and modern network connections for our employees and students.”
The first phase of construction will include outside directional boring and trenching that will occur along the north side of Student Way from the residence halls to Runner Park. Also included in the first phase will be the work of pulling cable beginning inside the Student Services building.
Regular updates on the construction progress will be available on the Web at http://www.csub.edu/tii/.
