Telecommunications and IT

We have worked in the telecoms and IT sector on projects including new build fixed and wireless networks, the construction of data centres and the development of bespoke systems and products and their integration within infrastructure projects.

We understand the process for the development of telecoms and IT systems through the phases of design, manufacture, off-site testing, integration testing, site installation, acceptance testing and commissioning. The length, and sometimes subjective nature, of the development process requires critical cost management and planning/scheduling skills.

In addition to this, systems are often combined with other technical packages and installed within a construction environment; interface management and associated change control procedures are therefore a key factor.

We have prepared feasibility studies for network operators to advise them in deciding on the locations of switch stations, and established a nationwide framework of contractors for their construction. We have also put the associated facilities management contracts and procedures in place.
