A significant question which often confronts our customers is not just how to distribute the cables within their buildings, but how to extend their infrastructure between their buildings and this has been a frequent issue throughout the many years we have been installing IT cabling solutions.

as a result, we have developed a strong relationship with a local civil engineering company, which partners us on any such projects, typically requiring one or more of the following:

  • Armaco barriers (eg, vehicle reservation barriers)
  • CCTV pole installation
  • Tarmac pathways (with ducts installed underneath)
  • Directional drilling under (eg) football pitches, with ducts subsequently installed within the bores
  • Trenching for UK Power Network feeds to temporary buildings
  • Conventional twin-wall ducts with manholes
  • Duct surveys utilising Sonde* and/or camera technology

when applicable

Our services for such projects include obtaining the necessary road-opening licences from the appropriate local authorities and utility companies and then managing the installation of ducts beneath public roads.

Linking customers’ buildings and sites with private underground ducts invariably provides them with substantial savings within a very short space of time, thus delivering an excellent return on their investment. This is often achieved by reducing or entirely removing the need for expensive central equipment in multiple buildings, coupled with immediate savings on public network telephone calls and/or annual service costs, whilst also providing better overall performance and enhanced system security.

* The dual-frequency compact Sonde can be used to trace drains, sewers and other non-conductive utilities to a depth of up to five metres. It acts like a signal transmitter and can be attached to a range of equipment including drain rods, boring tools and inspection cameras.
