Quandel and their team were instrumental in the successful completion of the Foss Home project here on the Main Campus in Danville. This project was a complex project - meshing old with new construction and installing today’s technology systems into an original knob and tube electrical system. Their team was exemplary in the coordination of all construction and interfacing of Geisinger’s product into the Home. Our thanks go out to Quandel for a job well done!
