Comms Centre provides structured cabling and cold aisle containment solution for a global leader in the beverage and alcohol industry
The client is a large multinational company that owns a range of prestigious beverage brands. Their overall headquarters are in London
The client wished to reduce their combined footprint across London, which spanned over multiple sites. The challenge was to relocate and consolidate the London-based employees to a single location and undertake a complete renovation whilst keeping in line with the company’s ambition to become one of the most inclusive employers in the world.
A main contractor was employed by the client, and relevant consultants designed and built the space as required. Comms Centre were part of the tender process supporting all integrators with the compliant technology designed by the client’s design team. Comms Centre’s offerings included:
- Copper horizontal Cabling
- Fibre backbone cabling
- Network and server cabinets
- Power distribution units
- Cold aisle containment solution for the MER environment
Comms Centre were involved throughout the tender stage and construction phase with responsibilities for technical submittal, product compliance, programme management, logistic management, and costings.
The project was delivered on time and in budget to meet the agreed programme. One MER and two SERs were successfully deployed across four floors. Around thirty network and server cabinets were deployed along with six-thousand copper data cables. Diverse fibre backbone routes were deployed.
The project was a success, with the client moving into its new premises on time and to specification. It was a great project to be part of and our relationship with the integrator has developed as a result of this.
We have been working on this project for roughly three months. It usually takes around four to five months to complete a project of this type and size.
The key stakeholders are the end client, which in this case would be the hospital. The facilities team in the hospital identified what room could be used and the IT team then identified what equipment was needed. They then communicated with an M&E design consultant to create a design plan for the project. Other parties were then instructed such as the structured cabling team and ourselves.
