Project Detail: Sep 2012 - 2016 – Framework contract for structured cabling services to support voice & data network infrastructure across three diverse campuses

The business requirement

The University of Reading were running an upgrade programme for their voice and data cabling within various buildings on the Whiteknights Campus. The project involves the installation of new containment systems, within environmentally difficult areas, for the upgrade of the IT cabling. Therefore a trusted and skilled contractor was needed to carry out the work.

The SSE Enterprise Telecoms solution

SSE Enterprise Telecoms proposed a solution that encompassed completing the installation during teaching periods and how it can be managed to ensure minimal disruption was caused throughout this period. Work tasks would be programmed and performed to a strict regime, to ensure that noisy works was completed outside these periods, but not to the detriment of the timescales.


SSE Enterprise Telecoms enjoys a close working relationship with the University Estates and Facilities Department having been a preferred contractor with the University of Reading for over a decade. During this time the University of Reading have awarded SSE Enterprise Telecoms 3 consecutive 4 year framework contracts due to our ability to deliver a quality service.

The framework includes a wide variety of works and services that SSE Enterprise Telecoms will provide including: structured cabling systems, voice networks through to new fibre backbones and laser ‘point to point’ wireless links.
