HW Technology have recently provided services to an existing client moving office. The legal services business had outgrown their previous premises and had agreed on a lease on a new property close by in West Sussex.
The client’s previous premises was a fully serviced office so the project required some strategic planning to cover off:
- Structured Cabling
- Network switches and POE voice switches
- Internet connectivity for voice and data services
- New Wi-Fi solution
- Testing and move day assistance
Due to the complexity of the project, HW Technology sourced and provided management services for the entire project and dealt with 4 third-party contractors to complete the work.
The initial stage of the project was to assess the building and identify any potential issues with the cabling and layout. A number of items were required in terms of cabling provision and as such HW Technology contacted a local cabling contractor to undertake the cabling and testing work.
We then provided support and assistance to understand the VoIP telephony requirements and worked with the voice provider to prepare the solution. A leased line was sourced and configured to enable voice and data to be provisioned with the correct levels of service required by the business. This included a backup line to allow the administrative staff the ability to answer calls in case the main line went down.
Our on-site team then installed all network and voice switches on-site and mounted new wireless access points. On completion, all network points were patched ready for the clients to move into their new premises.
On the move day, our engineer provided assistance to connect all devices in the new office including laptops, desktops, multi-function devices, mobiles, tablets and the VoIP phones.
ML, Managing Director:
“HWT masterminded all technological aspects of our recent move to new office premises. They responded well to all issues that inevitably arise in a major upheaval of this kind, were proactive when certain contractors were dragging their heels and handled the whole undertaking with patience and good humour, even when ours were fraying at the edges a little. The project reminded us of how fortunate we are to have such a supportive partner.”
