UIS helps the Centre for Digital Built Britain move west

last modified Jul 31, 2019 08:57 AM
The Network Infrastructure team recently completed a network installation project for the Centre for Digital Built Britain. The installation was part of a series of works to move them into new offices in the Broers Building on the West Cambridge Site.

Network Infrastructure team lead, Gary Arber, said “A bit of joined thinking was required within the UIS. Everyone worked well together and completed the project on time. Having been approached by CDBB, we delivered exactly what was required”.

The move will allow CDBB to expand into a new office space and continue its research into smart digital economies for infrastructure and construction. Making sure the network was up to the job for now and into the future was an essential part of the project brief. Consultation and design took several months and involved coordinating with Estate Management, contractors and various teams within UIS.

Nik Thomas (Head of Operations) from CDBB was very happy with how the move went “I want to thank Gary and the team at UIS for all the hard work they put into the project. CDBB is now well placed to continue its research and having a fast and reliable network is critical to that.”
