Case StudySPIE UK
SPIE UK is part of the SPIE group, the European leaders in electrical and mechanical engineering, HVAC services, energy and communication systems. The Company provides multi-technical and support services from initial mechanical and electrical design, through installation, testing, commissioning to long term maintenance and facilities management.
SPIE UK operates from a wide UK branch network to deliver exceptional quality and innovative solutions to customers. The Company is committed to technical innovation and constant development of skills to bring genuine benefits to their projects.
SPIE UK went through an office expansion, investing in a new and technically advanced head office on 33 Gracechurch Street, London. ISG technology was chosen to design, supply and install network cabling throughout the large office space. The new network infrastructure had to serve all business communication needs and to provide an opportunity for future business growth.
The main challenge of the project was the tight timescale. In just one month ISG technology was required to supply and install 430 Cat6 data outlets and also assist with the patching of new telephones and PC’s so that the project could be delivered on time and within budget.
Even last   minute changes to the building’s floor
design did not delay ISG technology’s engineers during the installation process.
The unconventional false floor within the new design was shallow and tapered at one end of the building which required ISG technology’s engineers to redesign the location of the clusters for the under floor cabling. Due to the false floor, strategic positioning of PVC protection boxes ensured the outlets wouldn’t be pulled and damaged.
ISG technology’s engineering team successfully supplied and installed 430 Cat6 outlets on new 24-way   patch   panels,   1U management   panels,
white PVC faceplates at the user’s end and below the false floor, all in the agreed timeframe.
Upon the completion of the installation works all the cabling and termination products were tested in accordance with all the necessary standards to ensure best quality practices were followed, despite the additional change of cluster locations.
ISG technology's engineers labelled the cabling system, which was approved by SPIE UK, and provided   all   the   necessary   documentation   for
utilising the improved system. In addition to the cabling project, the engineers also provided the complementary services of patching the outlets within the communications room and assisted with unpacking and assembling the IT and Telephone equipment for SPIE’s employees.
