Yorkshire-based Kirklees College is one of the 20 largest colleges in the UK, with 1,200 members of staff and 20,000 students.
The college approached our team with a written specification to design and install a structured cabling infrastructure solution across nine sites within a tight timescale, working with their existing contractor to install and test systems over the six-week holiday ready for the beginning of the academic year. Other key challenges were the fixed budget and the large data transfer capabilities needed to facilitate the high number of employees and students.
We designed and delivered a tailored solution for Kirklees College utilising Cat6a cabling, an om4 fibre optic infrastructure and C/W compartment dado trunking to create a high speed, reliable infrastructure that met their requirement to transfer large quantities of data between multiple sites. We also supplied the college with bespoke cabinets and electrical power to all classrooms.
Through effective time management, planning and ongoing testing, our skilled team delivered a high quality, up to date, reliable and scalable solution on time and within budget, achieving cost savings as a result of working smarter throughout the project.
