HBK is working with WOW! to assist with delivering more than 2,000 route miles of fiber optic network within the Chicagoland market. This includes more than 500 macro tower sites, more than 500 small cell sites, and more than 45 lateral sites which will utilize the 2,000 miles of fiber as the cellular backhaul to the mobile voice and data switching network for Verizon Wireless. We came into the project about half way through to assist with meeting the client’s project obligations to Verizon. HBK has assisted in all phases of the network design and delivery. This includes developing desktop fiber routes, phase 1 walk outs to secure final routes, surveying (both aerial and underground), design and engineering, permitting, conflict coordination and Chicago paving coordination. Our services quickly expanded to providing a team working on site at WOW! to assist with internal project coordination, construction management and construction observation. We have implemented advanced technology to safely and efficiently work our way through each phase of the project. Our team is committed to making this project a success, not only for HBK but for our client.
