Overview

The Client was aware that the relocation of both staff and specialist electronic equipment to Cody Technology Park would be a very complex project requiring the professional services of a company to design and project manage all aspect of the works, to ensure there was no loss of business continuity.

Client objectives

A key priority for the Client was to use the relocation as an opportunity to design a new facility that would fully support their business requirements for the future. With a mixture of new office space, reception area, meeting rooms, breakout areas, electrical test laboratory, screen rooms and computer room.

They required a space that was functional, flexible and yet designed to encourage creative thinking, whist ensuring the project was delivered within budget and to programme.

What we did

The project was designed and project managed to provide the above facilities. However, as a technology based company, with a high demand on voice and data systems, a great deal of design was focused on specialist areas. These being the comms room, testing laboratories and screen rooms, which required numerous miles of CAT 6 data cabling.

In addition liquid cooling packages were installed between cabinets in the comms room to maintain the correct operating environment for the Client’s specialist equipment.

Electrical utility supply and associated distribution throughout the building needed to be upgraded to serve the substantial electrical loads. In addition new UPS’s and standby generator were installed to support the business critical functions.
