Mount Carmel is home to retired Sisters of Charity for the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM) who are in need of different levels of care. This Design/Build project is a 250,000 SF – (4) Story Wood Framed Independent Living Facility, which is an extension of the main campus of buildings. Our scope of work includes offering residents and guests access to a wireless data network that is IEEE802.11 compliant. Each of the 116 resident rooms are equipped with a coaxial connection for access to the cable provider’s community antenna television (CATV) network, a CAT6 data drop, and a landline telephone connection (if desired). 125,000ft of CAT5E cable will serve 650 network connection points throughout the building and resident rooms. The buildings are connected with a backbone of Single Mode and OM3 laser-optimized fiber optic cabling, and 100 pair copper phone cabling. Our scope also includes a Fire Detection and alarm system, a Card Key Access Control system, and a closed-circuit TV (CCTV) security system.
