A full structured cabling and electrical fit-out was required by the client as part of their refurbishment project. Every desk needed to be able to accommodate a range of devices. As GCL are accredited installers for almost all cabling manufacturers undertaking this project met the engineers training, experience and high standard for quality.


Working as part of the client’s team, GCL’s relationship and experience provide peace of mind for the client. GCL work closely with their client to achieve the desired solution and this manifests as the engineers provide the detail and answers as rapidly, smoothly and effectively as possible. GCL cross-trains its engineers in both structured cabling and electrical power meaning that throughout the project the team could support both IT and Facilities in resolving any unforeseen issues.

The client also benefited from:

  • A trusted partner on the client’s side
  • Organised, new cabling and networking
  • Multi-skilled engineers available to support


Having worked with this client on previous projects, GCL is the preferred supplier for office infrastructure. As a result, the GCL engineers had an early introduction to the project, working closely with the main contractor managing the refurbishment. A full design and plan that takes into consideration current usage, as well as accommodating possible future expansion are created ahead of project commencement.

Typically, the first on-site and the last to leave, GCL installed CommScope, Netconnect structured cabling, additional power and lighting solutions. The long-standing relationship built over the years with this client and GCL’s experience in providing structured cabling solutions meant that the installation went according to plan, without challenges or delays.

“GCL are superb, Phil, Andy and the team have just finished a huge job in Worcester. I don’t how Phil gets everything done, his reply is always “yeah we can do that” to every request we make! Organising testing projects and moves, are all well-coordinated and completed on time."
