This firm fixed price contract was performed for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers located on McGuire AFB, New Jersey. Eastern Construction was a subcontractor on this project.
Eastern Construction and Electric, Inc. was tasked with the installation of a new communications cable backbone consisting of copper and fiber optic lines. This addition to McGuire’s communication infrastructure was required to connect the new facilities being constructed to support the new aircraft to McGuire, the C-17 cargo aircraft and to provide for future expansion within the C-17 bed-down area. In addition to the underground cabling work, this project incorporated the construction of a 610 square foot building addition to house the necessary switching equipment. The building addition was designed and constructed to be self-contained with its own HVAC, fire suppression and electrical systems including an emergency generator and automatic transfer switch.
