Manage and install the IT infrastructure throughout the college campus during a five-year rebuilding programme, including Category A and Category B fit outs in seven new buildings. The principal challenge was to keep the college IT network fully operational during the relocation of the main equipment room while each block was either renovated or built. The project was a major undertaking with an overall contract value worth around £40m to the main contractor, Wates Construction.
