We designed and implemented structured cabling & CCTV on a very rural Foresty Commission site in Gloucestershire, and now provide ongoing telecoms & broadband with 24/7 monitoring from our UK Network Operations Centre. The implementation works were completed during a complete rebuild project working under a principal contractor’s Construction and Design Management Regulations 2015 (CDM).
Verstech were engaged to design and implement a structured cabling & CCTV solution for this stunning new build Foresty Commission building in the Forest of Dean, with provision for broadband & telecoms. The client’s requirements included implementation alongside a complete building rebuild, allowing the tenant to take over immediately following practical completion.
The major challenge for this project was broadband connectivity; the client had a requirement for remote viewing of CCTV & provision of public WiFi. However, this area suffers from non-existent mobile phone signal, and has very limited ADSL capacity. The site is also located five miles from the nearest BT cabinet, thereby meaning that the installation of a leased line would be cost prohibitive.
Whilst on site, we were additionally engaged to design a background audio system for the café which was implemented by others. Overall, we met the client’s objectives in ensuring they could open with all services in place following practical completion.
