Electric Center. July 2012


Computer Cabling Solutions Ltd were delighted to be offered the chance to work for the Electric Center, a nationwide distributor of electrical products. With existing site offices in Warwick, staff members and directors were being relocated to new offices in Leamington Spa. A new Draka Cat6 system was chosen by the customer as their preferred cabling infrastructure. 156 lines were to be installed after the removal of the existing Cat5e system in place. With the new offices being totally refurbished and new Dado trunking being installed by the electricians, we were asked to first fix our cabling then return to site once building works were ready for us to continue. We positioned our network points in accordance with site drawings within the Dado trunking around the perimeter walls. A new communications rack was supplied and all new cabling distributed from this. We suggested to the customer about the benefits of installing Wireless Access Points which were not requested within the original tender. However after consultation, it was agreed that these should be added to the project. Each individual point was fully tested with our fluke equipment and all test results and site plans were handed over to the customer upon completion of the project. Two engineers were on site for a total of six days to complete this installation.
