Our Pre-construction, Construction & Restoration Process
Wyyerd requires contractors working for us to restore all property, private and public, to the condition that it was in prior to our work beginning. We have a Wyyerd Inspector on these projects that takes before and after photos of the construction route to confirm that the restoration has been completed.
Currently, asphalt and concrete restoration is taking longer due to material shortages. We are required to use materials approved by the local municipality and the lead times are currently four to six weeks to obtain the asphalt and concrete.
5 STEP PROCESS:
Hang door hangers, send construction notices to every resident, ask residents to sign up for email communications at fiber.events. The construction crews will mark the approved running lines with white paint and the Wyyerd team will take photos of approved construction paths.
The various utility companies with facilities in the area of our painted white lines will mark their existing path with the appropriate color paint or flags. Red for electric, orange for communications, blue for water, etc... Upon the completion of the utility locates, a pre-construction meeting will be held with the municipal Inspector and a start date will be set.
Perform construction work, via directional drilling and limited digging, including running our fiber-to-the-home internet to each home (up to Two GIG). Contractors will also complete decorative restoration work along the construction path and take photos of the restoration. Customers will then be able to order internet and phone services.
Perform the hard surface (concrete and asphalt) restoration along the construction path.
Perform a walk through with the municipal Inspector to verify that all restoration is complete to the satisfaction of the municipality.
Q. Will you be digging in my yard or on my sidewalk?
A. It is possible. All construction will be in the Public Utility Easement, which is from the back of the curb and extends into your front yard. But rest assured, we will fix anything we might have moved in the process. Please take photos of your yard today for reference.
Q. What if my sidewalk needs repairs after digging?
A. We replace and restore everything we touch to its original condition. Concrete patches are a 3 step process and will need time to fill, but be reassured every patch will be repaired to original condition.
Q. What are the markings or flags on my sidewalk and yard? Do you remove it after construction?
A. The marks on the sidewalk and the flags in your yard are to help the construction crews understand where the existing utilities are. The marking paint is not permanent and is designed to fade away over time. This is a requirement by law, and is managed by AZ811. We have been advised to leave the paint, and it will fade over time. AZ811 Operations Manager, Brad Simon, has said removing these marks could lead to major liability or injury and that we are asked not to paint over or pressure wash these marks. The city has also asked us not to pressure wash or remove marks as this could result in damage to the streets and sidewalks. If you have further questions, please call Brad Simon directly at (602) 659-7501.
Q. Will it be noisy? What hours will you be working?
A. Please expect additional traffic noise. A typical work day starts at 7AM and ends at sunset.
Q. How long does the construction take per street?
A. Approximately 2-4 weeks. Restoration will follow.
Q.How long after you build can I get service to my home?
