Document Description
The project will provide a new security perimeter fence encompassing the Fremont Campus for the California School for the Deaf Fremont, the California School for the Blind, and the Diagnostic Center Northern California to protect the students and property. Work will excavate holes 3 feet deep and 18-inches in diameter for each of the approx. 900 postholes to install approx. 6,400 linear feet of eight-foot-high ornamental and/or chain link fencing. Approximately 21 gates will be installed for the driveways, emergency, pedestrian, and maintenance access requiring trenching to install electrical conducts, wiring, card readers, access and control panels. Work will also remove 35 trees so the fence and gates can be installed and to prevent access by climbing the trees.
