Challenge: To provide coverage throughout a sprawling facility of 2.85 million square feet on 716 acres. Work on the facility could only be performed with the production lines shut down. The sheer size of the project coupled with the work restrictions presented the need for an aggressive approach.

GIANT Solution: The requirement for the production line to be dormant caused us to look at a holiday shutdown to complete the work. We deployed 4 local labor union crews to the facility working 24/7 to complete the work in the compressed time frame.

The design provided superior coverage to greater than 95% of the first, second, and third floors as well as the Mezzanine areas of the Paint and Body Shop. The system installed consists of an iDEN Base Station and a CDMA repeater powering a Mobile Access fiber DAS for main assembly, body, and paint. The Power House installation consists of an iDEN repeater and CDMA repeater source equipment.
