Sept 2014 - TE Connectivity IT cabling restructure over 6 months

Whitepack have been engaged to carry out the IT cabling restructure in conjunction with the major refurbishment of the clients national control centre in Suffolk. This project is planned to take approximately 6 months and involves the relocation of staff in phases from the control centre to temporary premises to allow for the refurbishment works to take place in each respective area. Whitepack are required to fit out the temporary premises with a suitable LAN infrastructure along with the moving, adding to and changing of the existing infrastructure in the control centre to suit the revised office and desk plans. All new and existing LAN infrastructure cabling is TE branded keeping in line with the clients stringent quality requirements.

To date Whitepack have completed the first phase which involved the installation of cabling in a temporary portacabin city to provide swing space, the re-arranging of cabling for 60 desks and a the first installation of 268 new category 5e TE cables to an area adjacent to the phase one desk space. This phase was delivered successfully despite the tight timescales set by the client’s property group. Phase 2 of this project is due to start in week one of October.

Upon completion of the project the collective areas of the control centre will be able to accommodate an additional 100 staff which will allow nearby satellite buildings to be vacated and therefore the leases ceased.
