The new InterMed building in Portland, Maine, is completed and now open for business.
The ten-story, 100,000 s.f. building is the cornerstone in a series of new developments either in design or under construction in the revamped “Bayside” area of Portland. The glass and brick building has four stories of parking under six floors of Class A medical/office space.
Connectivity Point installed a Category 6 structured cabling system with more than 1,400 outlet locations on InterMed’s four floors. Multi-mode 50 micron fiber serves as the primary backbone between the MDF on the 7th floor and the IDFs located on each floor above. Some thought and creativity had to go into the configuration
of equipment and patch panels within the equipment
racks since space was limited.
Moving equipment and opening an extremely busy medical office was a challenging task for the
staff of InterMed who rallied to get the new space ready for patients. As with any project of this
size, things got intense as opening day drew closer. Connectivity Point provided a number of support
functions including installing the Cisco wireless access points, installing patch cords, and performing
weekend cutover support.
“Connectivity Point was definitely a bright spot for us,” said InterMed, upon completion of the project. “It was great knowing that even in the middle
of the night on a Saturday someone was there to pick up our call to address our concerns during a crucial weekend move. Working with the highly skilled techs you had on the site made things run very smoothly and managing that project from our end was seamless.”
