Sir Francis Drake - San Francisco, CA
RLS-CMC, Inc. acted as Construction Manager and Owner’s representative (CMOR) for the property-wide IDAS installation of this iconic hotel. Built in 1928, the property brought unique challenges that required creative solutions and expert coordination of multiple trades to ensure the successful completion of all 24 floors. RLS-CMC, Inc. provide pre-construction, design, electrical engineering, structural engineering, hazardous material remediation, utility coordination, and project management services to complete the installation of this historic hotel located in Union Square. The installation required complete coverage from the basement areas, hotel lobbies, meeting spaces, guest floors, and up to the newly renovated top floor. To meet these demands, RLS increased the electrical capacity to power the active equipment in the top floor head end room and all six IDF rooms. The RLS team self-performed all coaxial cable testing and the complete PIM mitigation of the system to ensure all 95 antenna locations were able to meet or exceed the highest of carrier standards. Although the coronavirus presented some unforeseen challenges, the RLS team was able to complete this project on time and on budget.
