Main Entrance WSSU

A Mechanical Contractor was excavating an area in an attempt to uncover some defective steam pipes when they dug through several (3) 300 pair voice cables taking down a portion of the campus.

Triad Technologies was contacted and immediately dispatched the necessary personnel. Two teams worked through the remainder of the day and throughout most of the night to splice the damaged cables in order to restore operation.

During the following Memorial Day weekend, Triad Technologies replaced all of the damaged 300-pair cables with new cable, made all permanent splices and enclosures inside the manholes. It was necessary to supply personnel with cell phones in every floor of the dorms to serve as “Fire Watch” in case of an emergency until the replacement was complete.
