InstallerUFB: 

hmm - very interesting as you cant just move the ETP in this case, as its a BUDI box for more that one connection (up to 6 on a single Microduct and a 12core blown fibre) and would have been designed to be in that position - concrete cuter in ths case is the muppet


they did move the BUDI box from outside to inside in the end

some pics attached

unfortunately after 2 days of attempts the UFB installers are not able to blow the fibre through on the street side though

I realize it was only a small amount, but I thought it was illegal to take any quantity of sand from the beach unless you have resource consent. Especially for commercial purposes.

For commercial purposes it's illegal. For residential purposes (to fill a sand pit etc.) most regional councils allow you to take a cubic metre from memory (did an RMA paper at uni).

After a quick Google: Greater Wellington allows individuals to take up to 15 cubic metres from river beds!

chevrolux: I don't see the issue. The concrete is already broken. Just lift the piece between the saw cut and the natural Crack and dig the trench. People seem to be allergic to using a shovel these days...


It usually becomes impossible to fit the concrete back in after working under it.

Interesting that the scoper had not realised that concrete cut in planned location wasn't feasible, could have chosen a better spot for the BUDI. Scoping is often rushed/inadequate, but then its always easy to blame the scoper and hard to predict what issues other teams are going to have. Possibly a better result in terms of pretection with the BUDI inside anyway, just looks a bit ugly.




Qualified in business, certified in fibre, stuck in copper, have to keep going  ^_^
