Our construction division has been actively working on an expansion fiber to the home project in Huachuca, Arizona; a rural town in Cochise County with a population of around 1,853 residents. BPG Designs was awarded the opportunity to extend the Sierra Vista network +/- 4 miles north to feed the town of Huachuca and will continue building north to another rural town called Whetstone. The project’s first major deadline with a need to build a fiber route that would bring light to the first three service groups, including their highest priority, the school library was met. We were able to complete the construction for the first three service groups with a lot of work and help from our in-house splicing and fiber-pulling team.
One highlight, I’d like to share, was an opportunity to attend the local town hall meeting in which the intent of the ongoing work was presented to the community. Being from a small mining town myself, I felt our networks were always behind and outdated compared to the larger metropolitan areas throughout the state. Seeing a community that was excited and anxious to have fiber and more capabilities in their network was rewarding both personally and as a professional. Professionally, as a contractor, we do not always get to see the results of our work and how it can positively affect the communities that we are building for. It brought even more clarity to the “why” and purpose of the industry that requires, at times, demanding efforts from all who are involved. Thank you to all who were involved in helping to make the deadlines and the first major benchmarks in this project a success. by James Ruiz
