Structured cabling for Universities & Colleges
Your educational buildings need to regularly update their technology to make certain that your facilities can support the latest requirements from both students and staff. There is now additional pressure to undertake improvements as clients and stakeholders demand for an increase in sustainability.
In 2009 approximately 43% of the UK’s carbon emissions came from buildings. Clients are now demanding more sustainable practices, while legislation is becoming more stringent. These changes will require a trusted electrical contractor with industry experience.
GCL have extensive knowledge and expertise working with educational buildings. As part of The Supply Chain Sustainability School, we provide you with sustainable building solutions, saving you money and increasing building efficiency. We will work closely alongside you to provide a range of infrastructure services including:
- Structured cabling for all college buildings and extensions
- Updating IT infrastructure, network capability, and telecommunication installations
- Energy saving lighting – LED retrofitting
- Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS)
- Wi-Fi installations and enhancements
- Integrating your building services to create an ‘intelligent’ building
Your electrical contractor should carefully plan effective collaboration with your institution so that you receive the most suitable solution, with minimal disruption to educational activities. GCL frequently work in fully occupied premises across many sectors, so health and safety considerations are at the centre of all project planning.
From setting up a complete cabling system to modernisation, refurbishment and maintenance projects, our experienced team utilise industry best practice in everything we do. But don’t just take our work for it; see how we have helped the prestigious University College of London.
