Teecom showed drawings of layout for Telecom rooms. Robert, Mark and Clonia
developed initial solutions to problems in conduit routing. Clonia clarified
scope between Teecom bid package and KH design for prime contract on plywood
backing for attaching conduits to walls, and structural support for conduit
- Telecomunications Design/Build Bid Package
Mark advised of a recent meeting between Clonia, TEE and Teecom, and
City of San Francisco officials.
Mark said that Teecom is preparing a telecommunications scope for a
design/build bid package to be let separately from the prime building
Telecommunications bid package will include...
- Life Safety Systems
- Building Automation
- Door hardware
- Elevator Systems
- Temperature Controls
- Lighting Controls
- Security Systems
Mark advised that the prime building contract will include construction
of conduit. The Telecom bid package will include pulling the wire in
Mark advised that the cable is fiber optic.
The sweeps require 4' so a double sweep requires 8' for the curvature
of the conduit.
- Finish Schedule for Telecom Rooms
Plywood Backing for Conduit, with Internescent Paint
Mark says Teecom's spec calls for connecting conduit to 3/4" plywood.
Robert says KH can design a wall for attaching the plywood.
Teecom will specify that utility and fixture "boxes" must be flush
with the surface of the plywood.
Clonia said the plywood for conduit runs will be part of the prime
building contract, designed by KH.
- Prime Contract Bid Package Shall Specify...
3/4" plywood is to be provided on all the walls for the
telecommunication rooms. By General Contractor
- Finish shall be Internescent paint.
- KH to coordinate door hardware with Teecom telecom scope
- Structural Support Telecommunication Cable Trays
Robert says that because the ceilings are high, Teecom should include
in its bid package for the Telecom system, miscellaneous metal
structural support for conduit cable trays.
Mark says the Teecom Telecommunications conduit requires cable trays
on all floors.
Mark says structural support needed for 14' ceilings.
Clonia says KH will provide structural support for conduit cable
trays. KH should provide structural support for Telecom conduit cable
trays only for ceilings over 14' high.
Clonia instructed that an express note be provided on the plans for
the contractor to provide structural support for telecommunications
Robert asked for loading requirements of conduit cable trays?
- Mark says Teecom will submit cable tray layout and loading
requirements to KH.
- Teecom specifications are to call out structural support for
Mark indicates that KH should provide structural support for all
ceiling areas in Telecom rooms in basement, 2nd and 3rd floors for
the East quantrants.
Robert suggested support requirements for cable trays to be a pair of
angles at 48" OC (to be confirmed.)
Mark noted that Pacific Bell's floor loading requirement for the main
telephone room in the basement for this application is 150#/SF.
Clonia said that the floor is designed to support 250#/SF.
Robert asked if any vertical conduit runs require bollard protection?
- Quadrant 2 Telecom Rooms Conduit Routing
Decided to run the conduit exposed on the wall at line E.5 near line 1.
- The conduit can go through the mezzanine, swing to the exterior
wall at grid 1 near E.5, into the electrical room.
- It will be routed into the telecom room next to the electrical
- Conduit to continue up the exterior wall at grid 1, penetrate the
ceiling at floor 1 and swing the conduit onto grid line 1.
Mark says this route will work.
- Quadrant 4 Telecom Rooms Conduit Routing
The proposed route runs over the North wall of the Telecom room at
grid 4.6 near E.6, under structure to the South wall of Elevator 7.
Conduit continues up the S. wall of Elevator 7 wall to Telecom rooms
Robert investigates mechanical and architectural drawings and does
not notice any conflicts.
- Quadrant 1 Telecom Rooms Conduit Routing
Mark says the conduit will run from the South wall of the Telecom room
in the basement near B 1 over to the wall on A6 between grids 1.5 and
2, through the security office and into the telecom rooms above.
Mark said there are no problems with Elec.
Robert checks mechanical drawings for conflicts.
None are identified.
- Quadrant 3 Telecom Rooms Conduit Routing
Robert clarified that the Telecom rooms on 2nd and 3rd floors are moved
from 4.3 to 4.6.
Robert and Mark developed the following route...
- Conduit to route up the South wall of the basement Telecom room at
grid 4.3 near A.5
- Through the wall chase behind the urinal at 1st floor through the
mechanical room at mezzannine
- Swing over South of grid 4.3.
- Telecom room moved Sough of grid 4.3 with new door location at South
- Conduit routes to the South wall of the new location, and up to
