Network IT Completed at Gates Medical Facility

Norwood, MA – LAN-TEL Communications, Inc., based in Norwood, has completed the installation of the network infrastructure project at the 33,000sf Bill & Melinda Gates Medical Research Institute facility at One Kendall Square. The project included installation of Panduit general premises wiring solution.  

Due to COVID-19, the NECA contractor’s project scope expanded to include additional low-voltage requirements, including telecom/phone and A/V installations, as well as IT network integration of the Cambridge facility with Gates Medical Research headquarters in Seattle, Wash.  

Jay Burke, LAN-TEL PM  and Ted Matte, foreman, headed the project team, supervising an IBEW Local 103 crew in the fast-track, 12-week project, which was completed in August.
