SBInet Virtual Fence Roadway/Site Improvements – Arizona/Mexico Border
The SBInet Program along the Arizona border had initially consisted of approximately 170 fixed communication towers and four central control facilities. Hoskin Ryan was involved with the construction of the 23 existing towers, and the new central control facility. The diversity and remoteness of the sites required a significant level of attention to minimize disturbance to the surrounding native environment, while ensuring construction access and future maintenance access was provided. Hoskin Ryan provided the necessary field work to prepare topographic surveys for the proposed tower compounds and the access roads to the compounds. We also supported the program by providing hydrology reports, civil construction documents for tower sites and access roads, Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan, and preliminary site assessment reports for potential sites in the Tucson, Cagliari, Nogales, Sonoita, and Ajo sectors. Reacting quickly to the construction schedule for both the Tucson and Ajo sectors, Hoskin Ryan provided the necessary construction staking manpower to meet the needs of the construction schedule. Record field measurements were obtained once construction was completed and the as-built plans were prepared and submitted.
