Connect without core drilling
36° North, a base-camp for entrepreneurs in Tulsa, Oklahoma, needed
to install cable management solutions able to accommodate all users
with power, data and telecommunications access without intruding on
the workspaces. Connectrac wireways were chosen to seamlessly
accomplish their objective.
“The building used to be a former Model-T car dealership back in the
1920’s,” said Dustin Curzon, Executive Director of 36° North. “The
building itself is over 100-years old and it was out of the question to
trench or core drill.”
The headquarters had six conference rooms in need of cable management: one board room, two video rooms and two
standing rooms. Their board room fits up to 16 people with power and data connections available on top of a conference
table. The video rooms provide a more relaxed setting for clients with L-shape stadium-seating coupled with A/V connectivity.
The two standing rooms were lined with tall tables and stand-up stools. Additionally, 36° North wanted to route power and
data throughout their 1,500 square-foot dedicated workspace.
“Connectrac would allow us to run power and ethernet to each workspace in a cost effective way without having to use
core drilling or trenching,” said Curzon.
The installation team quickly installed Connectrac In-Carpet Wireways throughout the
dedicated workspace and their six conference rooms. Simple to install, the wireways
gave 36° North the complete solution they had been looking for. With company
growth and changes sure to happen, Connectrac enables 36° North to access and
reconfigure any cabling they see fit in the future.
“Data was a huge thing for us in making our building. We needed something that
channeled data but was ADA compliant and ADA friendly,” said Curzon. “We loved
how accessible it was. If you want to add something, it’s okay because we have
room in Connectrac and we can just throw it in. It was very helpful for us.”
With all cable management installations complete, 36° North can now live out their
visions of building and providing opportunities for aspiring businesses and entrepreneurs.
“It is a very innovative environment they have created at 36° North,” said Clint
Strong, CEO of Connectrac. “Entrepreneurs will now have everything at their disposal
in order for their businesses to thrive.”
