BC Engineers set to work on a network cabling and a new Panasonic telephone system install project today!
A reputable construction contractor approached us to tender for network cabling and installation of a new telephone system for a site on a major road improvement project.
Before the quote was written and delivered to the customer, Business Communications requested information about what cabling routes, phone system requirements incl. extensions, need for linkages between locations and /or site cabins and also if there are planned future changes such as expansions or site relocation. This helps when we are deciding on the types of cables and Panasonic phone system suitable to meet the customer’s needs. Also since it is our company policy to re-use equipment (reduce wastage) wherever possible, our team will ask if there are equipment at an old site that can be refurbished or serviced and reused. Generally, this will reduce costs for the customer = BONUS!
Once Business Communications’ account manager has got the ‘go ahead’, the next internal processes are:
- Ordering equipment
- Refurbish / service equipment from the customer, ready for the next installation
- The project team members are agreed – dependent on skills required, also CSCS cards and accreditation are up-to-date
- Cabling routes agreed with the customer (often tweaked, even on the day of install)
- RAMS (Risk Assessments and Method Statements) are drawn out and sent to customer for approval before attending site
Since we delivered the quote a few weeks ago and got the ‘green light’ last week, today is the ‘d’ day!
So this morning Business Comms has butterflies in its belly because our engineers are just about to commence the project!
Well they are all ready for the work and geared up in their PPE – Hi-Viz and Hardhat and DP4400 to hand for communications!
What’s the deal:
- Over 300 Cat5e Network Points to be cabled
- Voice and Fibre Linking to Connect Remote Site Cabins
- Panasonic Phone System with over 60 Extensions (install, programmed and training users)
- Conference Units (installation, programmed and user training)
Now that Business Communications has had a BC project initiation meeting with the engineering team so everyone is on board, now we say, ‘bring on the challenge‘!
Enjoy the sunshine if it pops out #shadeson
