To the City of Orillia it was clear the timing was right to replace the outdated water tower on Brenner Street in the north end of town. The aged tower served as a home base for antennas operated by local emergency services as well as the municipal water reservoir monitoring equipment. The city had specified in the tender that RM Products would provide the enclosure for the base equipment room of the new tower.
The fiberglass enclosure was required to house the newly erected towerï¿½s computer and switching equipment systems for the emergency and municipal services, as well as an additional cellular service to the area.
Assembled in the RM Products factory, this fiberglass enclosure was designed to specification by the contractor to include a service panel, electrical outlets, a light switch and heating.
The communication equipment requires the temperature to remain constant and dust to be minimal. RM Products fiberglass insulated sandwich panel provided a perfect solution. The seamless insulated fiberglass panel resists dust and eliminates the possibility for moisture growth. Along side these key features, RM Products modular buildings are virtually maintenance free, making them an ideal fit for this type of application.
The fiberglass building, once assembled and equipped, was delivered to the site, which had already been fenced. A crane was used to lift and place the communications building onto the pre-poured insulated concrete pad. The entirely fiberglass construction is light in weight, making the structure easily portable to any location.
Due to the amount of cables entering the building from the tower, a custom cable entry port (pictured below) was designed and created by the RM Products team to allow for a specific entry location for the tower cables.
Once completed, the building received rave reviews by The City of Orillia and the contractor who was awarded the tender. He stated; "This building should be the standard for the industry".Click here to view Case Studies on our Communications buildings.
