DirecTV Uplink Stations
Multiple Locations, West Coast
Completed simultaneously, these two uplink stations were rebuilt from existing structures and totaled 44,000 sf. Each has an MER with electrical racks, a Telco room with telephone, LAN and data uplinks. Additionally, we supervised installation of the satellite dishes and amp/3p systems that power them. Both facilities have redundant systems in case of power failure so if one goes down the other will be able to pick up broadcasting without customer service interruption. Our initial success led the owner RenovationMetro.com to have us add new antennas and pads, all associated electrical tie-ins and a 20,000 sf parking lot to each site within the year.
