The project proved challenging. Black Box Team Members worked in an exposed building during winter, and change orders included adding more workstations and cabling for wireless access points. In addition, Black Box’s installation schedule had to be carefully planned around those of other construction crews and service providers working on-site.
But the most daunting challenge came from the general contractor. Because of an upcoming inspection, the nursing area of the center needed to be done at least a week and a half sooner than planned! Black Box was notified on a Thursday. Black Box responded by committing that the work would be done by Monday. No one, including the general contractor, construction management, and the technical analyst for the health system, believed it would be done. But the entire Black Box team pulled together and went to work in the building. Only one person stayed behind at the Black Box office to answer the phones. The team worked late into Friday night and finished the job on time and as promised.
