In January 2017, VectorUSA joined Mazda Motor Corporation’s buildout efforts for a building the company was leasing two miles from their headquarters in Irvine. The project called for the remodel of the building’s six floors. VectorUSA was tasked with building and designing the building’s network infrastructure from scratch, including the fiber optic backbone; CAT6, CAT6A, and coaxial cabling to support wireless; end user devices; Audio and Visual; CATV; and new circuits. VectorUSA also installed a new Cisco wireless infrastructure and network. Mazda had strict deadlines and wanted to move staff into the building in four months.

A challenge VectorUSA encountered during the buildout was being flexible while other contractors occupied the same area simultaneously. Our Cabling Team had coordinated cables which the crew needed to lace through custom-made modular furniture while also working with the furniture builders and millwork installers to complete each setup. The client was highly satisfied with the work VectorUSA provided and remains a strong advocate for our Infrastructure expertise.

Team members leading the charge for this project included Regional Sales Manager Chris Kyaw, who provided leadership and technical expertise for the client as needed; Communication Foremen Jeremy Sanderfer, Gabriel Castaneda, and Billy Washington who all provided great infrastructure cabling; Network Engineer Jason Hernandez, who provided wireless expertise; and General Superintendent Edgar Ochoa, who provided direction on conquering a unique floor setup.
