Target is the second largest discount retailer in the United States. With more than 1770 stores across 49 states and up to 100 new store openings annually, Target maintains a unified, focused approach to retail facility operations and infrastructure management. Target keeps information and communications technology systems current through regular store upgrades, renovations, and maintenance. In addition to ensuring continued efficiency of store operations, these modernization measures promote the Target brand by delivering contemporary, state-of-the-art technological interfaces at every consumer touchpoint to help maximize the overall customer experience.
O’Connell has been keeping the data and security networks at Target stores current and up to date with the latest technologies for over a decade. In coordination with more than a dozen local unions we have worked at over 50 retail facilities across New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. This year, O’Connell will contract for eight to ten store remodels.
O’Connell’s data and security work involves the installation and updating of closed circuit television (CCTV), voice over internet protocol (VOIP), data, sound, and WiFi systems. Our structured cable design and installation spans the store service entrance, equipment rooms, fiber optic backbone and distribution system. We also perform all cable certification testing on both existing and new installs.
Target store remodel projects run on tight schedules with short windows of opportunity to accomplish all necessary work. To help meet time demands as well as minimize interruptions to store operations, O’Connell often establishes a third shift to accomplish work outside of store hours. Our project management team maintains open communications with the customer throughout each project and makes regular visits to the job site. Across our ten year working relationship with Target, O’Connell has completed every project within dictated time parameters and recorded no safety incidents.
