Tectonic was retained by Verizon Wireless to provide Turnkey Program Management services for the site acquisition, leasing, permitting, and engineering design of 2,000 generator sites in the North Carolina and South Carolina, Arizona, New Mexico, California, Nevada, and El Paso markets. All services were performed sole source utilizing Tectonic’s in-house staff.
Tectonic’s turnkey services included the following:
- Program Management
- File Audits
- Physical Site Audits & Design Inspection
- Constructability Review
- Lease Exhibits
- Environmental/Regulatory Review
- Zoning and Construction Engineering Plan Preparation
- Zoning/Municipal Permitting
- Building Permit Application
- Close Out Documentation
The project had very aggressive time frames. In less than 6 months, Tectonic was able to obtain over 300 building permits for the Verizon Wireless construction manager to start generator construction. This included sites in coastal and historic zones. Due to coastal flood zones, as well as regulatory concerns, Tectonic designed a special containment system which was approved by Verizon Wireless and enabled Verizon Wireless to utilize diesel generators on sites previously thought to be unfeasible for placement in flood plains.
