Project: Rowberry Morris Reading and Staines Offices Data Cabling Grade 2 Listed Building

Client: Rowberry Morris | Sector: Solicitors | Duration: 1 Month

Rowberry Morris are a solicitors company with several offices based in Reading, Richmond and Tadley

Due to an upgrade to a VOIP Telephone system in the Reading and Staines offices new Cat5e cabling was required throughout both buildings

Due to the nature of the business all these works were carried out of hours over several weeks of overnight working requiring the data cabling installation and replacement of the office to its working condition for the next day

Rowberry Morris Reading Data Cabling Grade 2 Listed Building

The Cat5e wiring in both buildings were of totally opposite requirements

The Reading office is located in a listed 16th Century House, previously incorporated as a Village Inn

Due to the listed nature the structured cabling installation had very specific rules and requirements with regards to routes, drilling and containment of the data wiring

 

Special considerations where given to the timbers and structure of the building due to their listed nature.

As the photos show the building shows its age and character and everything was done to maintain the aesthetics and credibility of this structure

The Staines office was of a more straight forward data cabling installation.

Located in a main room of shops and commercial buildings the building consisted of 3 floors.

The upper two floor were solid ceiling requiring data cabling trunking to be installed throughout to run the Cat5e cables

There was after a need to work within the building loft to route IT cabling on the upper floors.

Once again all work were undertaken overnight to minimise disruption to the business

Project: Schaltbau, Milton Keynes

Client: Schaltbau | Sector: Transport | Duration: 2 Months

Schaltbau structured cabling Cat7a and Om4 fibre

Schaltbau is a electromechanical components and systems producer for transport and industrial applications

The new office and warehouse unit based in Rooksley, Milton Keynes was designed with a high specification structured cabling system employing Cat7a throughout and Om4 fibre cabling links between server and main data cabling cabinets

Due to the high data cabling installation and termination requirements of Cat7a cabling, specific care was taken in the design, installation and positioning of the data cabling outlets

Cat7 Data Cabling

The Cat7a data cabling would be employed for the Schaltbau Telephone Systems, IT Systems, WIFI and DECT Phone base stationsSchaltbau structured cabling Cat7a and Om4 fibre

As the property was part offices and part warehouse space, data cabling was required to be installed from electric scissor lifts at 8m working heights. This would be required for running the data cabling to the WIFI and DECT access points

The Office space was only aesthetically refurbished so part of the data cabling design for NM Cabling was how to incorporate the containment for running and terminating the Cat7a structured cabling

A range of dado and maxi trunking was employed for this purpose

The installation of bespoke containment and shrewd design allowed the Cat7 cabling to maintain its bend radius and allow for correct termination at the user end

One of the challenges with cat7 cabling installations is the correct containment, pre designed routes and allowances which needed to be overcome on this project

Upon completion of the Schaltbau data cabling installation and termination the testing was undertaken with a specific Cat7 cabling tester. The last unique element of this project and any Cat7 cabling project

Data Cabling

Cat6 data cabling was the basis of the horizontal cabling throughout the offices, run through false floors and along exposed cable tray such was the industrial design setting of the building

Cat6a data cabling was also installed for the audio visual system and to a dedicated cinema room.

OM3 fibre optic cabling was also installed as data links between satellite areas  within the building.Structured Cable solutions Cat5e Cat6 and Cat6A for Uswitch

Upon completion of the horizontal IT Cabling and to keep continuity, Zoopla commissioned NM Cabling to patch in all of the IT Cabling, Telephone Cabling and WIFI Systems

This way a consistent data cabling patching installation was achieved and colour coded for ease of maintenance on their IT and Telephone cabling

The WIFI units were also mounted and commissioned along with the data cabling patching
