Ten miles outside of Anchorage, Alaska, there sits one of Shelter Works’ telecommunication shelters, protecting an 8000-pound battery plant, relay racks, cable trays, fiber optic cables and coax cable as well. GCI Communications Corporation is the largest telecom carrier in Alaska, providing wired phone service, cell phone, Internet, Cable TV and data systems for the vast state of Alaska. They reached out to Shelter Works to meet their very exact specifications for a custom-engineered telecom shelter.
GCI Communications Corporation maintains a facility that handles telephone, cable, wireless and internet services throughout the state of Alaska. This telecommunications shelter is co-located with a fire station and a natural gas pump station and needed a fiberglass telecom shelter to protect the telecom equipment that could meet special requirements in terms of functionality, protection from the Alaskan weather, integration equipment, and finally, color.
