The electrical team within the Gateshead Housing Company installed data cabling for many years. However, due to a lack of funding, training and support with equipment and tools, it was decided that a competent contractor was needed.
One issue arose with a data cable not transferring data correctly. KBR were
contacted through the Gateshead Housing Company procurement framework
and, with all the information requested as part of the tender process, it was
noted our Risk Assessments and Method Statements ticked all the boxes of
the Gateshead Housing Company’s check sheet.
How We Helped
KBR tested the problematic cable and identified the optimal replacement. To
resolve the problem, we provided a Multimode OM3 fibre-optic cable
installation between the ground floor cabinet and the cabinet in the loft.
With decades of experience carrying out cable installations in a wide variety
of settings, our Enhanced DBS-certified engineers were able to complete the
job in a timely fashion with minimal disruption to Gateshead Housing
Company’s regular activity.
KBR have been entrusted with solving many other issues around installing,
commissioning and testing data networking for the Gateshead Housing
Company. The organisation now considers KBR their go-to supplier for data
The service that KBR provide is second to none. They provide very competitive quotes for work, they provide CDM 2015 information very quickly when requested and they arrive on site and complete the work when they say they will.
