connecting BL enclosure to -48V DC power

I am in the process of ordering a new BL p-class enclosure and blades. My environment is a telco facility with -48V DC power. I have reviewed all the enclosure install guides available online, and they don't get into the details of connecting to the facility.

My account manager got me the attached document, that in fact states the facility dc connection kit only includes power cables, and that the power bus box is still required. However, now I can't find installation details on the bus box.

I'm leaning toward ordering just the bus box, and having our facility electricians install their own cables to the unit. Has anyone gone through installation of these enclosures in a telco environment; can you provide advice?
