Forest Electric New York assisted with a multi-floor restack and workstation migration initiative and the design and construction of a state-of-the-art data center. 

Our team provided engineering and support to help develop and install a structured cabling system that consisted of hundreds of thousands of feet of high performance Systimax Cat6 cabling connecting approximately 3,000 workstations. 

Additionally, a new data center was built on the twelfth floor to anchor expanded power and data thresholds.

We restacked floors 2-9, 12, and 13 and built a new data center, which involved installing the following:

  • Systimax Cat6 cabling
  • Corning fiber optic cable
  • Corning fiber optic MTP trunks, APC cabinets, and containment for the new data center
  • Security cabling and devices
