Cabling Success Stories

Graham & Dunn

Pier 70 – Seattle , WA

Interface Technologies NW performed the design in conjunction with the client for the complete space including backbone, horizontal communication cabling, and overhead paging speakers. The complexity of the structure required extensive planning and detailed execution.

This project was fast tracked to turn over nearly the entire Pier in 7 months. Despite the unique challenges inherent with a vintage building, Interface Technologies NW was able to complete the project on time and meet the expectations and last minute requirements of Graham & Dunn.

Stafford Frey Cooper

Two Union Square – Seattle , WA

Interface Technologies NW installed a Belden/Panduit Category 6 solution for Stafford Frey Cooper for their new offices within Two Union Square . The infrastructure consisted of a main Server room with (2) remote IDF closets connected with a combination of 50 micron MM fiber optic cable and Category 6 backbone cables.

The carpet trade also delayed parts of this project nearly 14 days while the move date slipped only 7 days. With carpeting, painting, and ceiling cover in the last 20 days of construction over 1.5 floors of new construction at Two Union Square , Interface Technologies NW had to increase their crew size significantly to meet the condensed deadline requirements put in place by the General Contractor.

We were successful in meeting the deadline that the client had outlined for us in conjunction with the accelerated construction schedule.

Installed 300 C6 cables & backbone fiber, copper, coax


Keane Care, Inc.

Opportunity Building – Redmond , WA

Interface Technologies NW first assisted with suggestions on designing the Cabling RFP document that we also intended on responding to along with our competitors. After providing the most thorough and competitive proposal, Interface Technologies was awarded the work. Prior to awarding the work, Keane was concerned that our labor estimate of 402 hours for 454 cables within an 18,000′ space was not sufficient and we assured them that our estimates were accurate and that we were comfortable with our proposal

During the project, Keane had several additions, which we were able to incorporate into our ongoing installation process without any trouble. In the end, Interface Technologies’ Keane Care Inc. project came in on time, below the proposed hours (396 hrs), and with a level of infrastructure quality in our installation that they had not had at their previous facility in Bellevue

Installed (454) Category 5e cables & an (11) speaker Valcom Paging System


Barclays North, Inc.

Barclays Campus – Lake Stevens , WA

Interface Technologies has performed nearly all of the communications cabling infrastructure within the 5 building campus in Lake Stevens , WA plus installed a campus wide Avaya Merlin Magix phone system and ran copper and 10Gig fiber between all structures on the campus. The work started with a complete design/build of the Headquarters building originally known as Building C. The Building C structure itself was mainly hard lid ceilings at 10′ to 16′ throughout prompting a complex Electrical Raceway Design by Interface Technologies delivered directly to Barclay’s North to forward on to their Electrician to ensure the proper raceways were installed.

In addition to the complimentary Electrical raceway design and leadership in the construction process making the Telecommunications piece a priority, Interface Technologies was also asked to layout a server room that would be treated as a showcase for Barclays North to tour their clients through. We worked with the amount of space allocated to provide a showcase level server room to their approval.

Finally, Barclays North has asked us back, without competition, to perform the underground cabling between the Campus Server room in Building C and their two new buildings, Building D and the Garage ( Training Center ). Once complete with the underground connections, Interface Technologies will also be performing the entire infrastructure communication cabling and server room layouts within both buildings and making the additions to the Avaya Magix phone system to bring up connectivity in ALL four buildings for both voice and data communications.

Building C Installed (120) Category 5e cables

Building D Installed (190) Category 5e cables

Training Center Installed (48) Category 5e cables


Reinisch Weier Mackenzie Law

Washington Shoe Building – Seattle , WA

Interface Technologies NW designed and built the Category 5E infrastructure cabling solution and also moved and re-installed the legacy Norstar phone system. The job was on a very compressed time frame, which required ITN to carefully coordinate and plan the installation. Complications and oversights by the electrical contractor required us to spearhead and manage the installation of the proper raceway/piping solutions to meet the functional and esthetic needs of the client.


Telephony Installation Successes

Barclays North, Inc.

Barclays Campus – Lake Stevens , WA

Interface Technologies NW has performed several phases of infrastructure cabling as Barclays North has expanded. In addition to their cabling infrastructure, Interface Technologies has installed an Avaya Merlin Magix phone system serving the entire campus. The work started with a complete design/build of the Headquarters building originally known as Building C. Challenges included service to the building from Building A creating a need for an OSP (outside plant) design for their campus cabling.

After completing Building C, it was connected with a Laser Optimized 50 Micron 10Gig 12 strand fiber optic cable backbone and a 100 pair cable for connectivity between A and C for our Avaya Magix telephone system. Once complete with this piece Interface Technologies re-terminated the previous vendor’s cabling in Building A to patch panel to provide a universal system allowing for easy MAC’s (Moves, Adds, Changes) in either building on both the voice and data cabling within building A.

Finally, Barclays North has asked us back, without competition, to perform the underground cabling between the Campus Server room in Building C and their two new buildings, Building D and the Training Center . Once complete with the underground connections, Interface Technologies also performed the entire infrastructure cable plants within both buildings and making the additions to the Avaya Magix phone system to bring up connectivity in ALL four buildings for both voice and data communications.

Northwest Hand Specialists – Ballinger, Everett, Woodinville

Interface Technologies has worked with Northwest Hand since their move into their Ballinger Headquarters facility in 2003. NWHand had a unique goal in mind when creating this new facility to have much of their staff consistently mobile and therefore not pinned down to a desk and a phone. We utilized a combination of an Ayava Legend phone system and Engenius wireless units that operate off several stations and provide multi-line connectivity anywhere in the facility and beyond. This is accomplished through some clever programming and use of analog ports to treat each wireless phone as it’s own extension off of the Avaya phone system.

In addition, we have Everett and Ballinger tied together via a point-to-point T-1 enabling 3-digit dialing between offices among other shared efficiencies such as a single voice mail unit. Finally, the new Woodinville clinic has recently come on line and is also connected to Ballinger via PTP T-1.

Legacy Telephony Successes


Premier Lending Group

Union Bay Building-Eastlake – Seattle , WA

Interface Technologies had been assisting an Everett based Telemarketing firm with the relocation of their predictive dialer a few times over the years but only when this firm sold their dialer to the Premier Lending Group on Eastlake did the true challenge begin. In addition to providing a complete cabling infrastructure, Interface Technologies was asked if their newly purchased legacy’ predictive dialer would be able to interface directly with their existing Avaya Legend phone system. Knowing that our years of experience with the Avaya Legend phone system meant that we had a fair shot at making these two 10-15 year old systems transfer calls and communicate with each other but some careful planning was going to have happen in preparation for an effective synchronization. Our telephony group spent some time confirming the expectations of the client prior to the linking of the system so that once the system’s were connected, they would operate as expected providing an efficient flow of qualified lending clients over to the senior level lender’s in a quick and organized fashion. After some careful planning, our Telephony group led by Kevin Schmidt, overcame many challenges relating to the older equipment’s limitations and abilities all the while keeping the pre-arranged call flow design in mind. In the end, both of the systems now operated as planned exchanging information at the best efficiency that their level of technology would allow and the Premier Lending Group was very satisfied with their systems and our support.

Relocated a multi cabinet Avaya Legend phone system & synchronized with Predictive Dialer for inbound sales. Added 3 rd cabinet, multiple T-1 cards, and station cards for growing staff.
