When Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) decided to build a state-of-the-art dedicated gas operation and control center to monitor its natural
 gas operations, it 
turned to
 CH Reynolds to wire the on-site data
centers that connect to the operations’
 video monitoring 
“nerve center.”

Under tight deadline and amidst structural design changes to the data centers, the project required the wiring of two small data centers within a state-of-the art 10,000 square foot control center. With over 100 miles of network cables, it was imperative that CH Reynolds use off-site prefabrication in order to complete the project in a timely manner.

The CH Reynolds team wired each of the 1,200 square foot data center rooms that feed data into the video monitoring center using Cat 6 horizontal Ethernet cable connected to the video monitors in each of the serving rooms, and then wiring the backbone ties to the two server rooms with single-mode and multi-mode fiber. CH Reynolds then cabled to both server rooms, setting up patch panels. Throughout the process the client was able to preview the setup to ensure the quality met or exceeded their expectations.
