Network Rail (Scotland) Office Refurbishment

We recently completed an office refurbishment that saw us installing Brand Rex Cat6 and OM3 fibre optic cabling to very tight timescales. The works were in a “live” building meaning extra care was needed when organising deliveries and working within the offices to ensure there were no disruptions to the other staff.

Network Rail runs, maintains and develops Britain’s rail network, which includes rail tracks, signalling, bridges, tunnels, level crossings and many key stations. In Scotland, it owns 351 railway stations and manages over 2,754 miles of track that criss-crosses the country. Scotland’s rail network serves urban and rural communities and along with transporting 90 million passengers a year, it carries numerous freight services.

Minimising disruption to passengers is crucial when carrying out work on any part of the network and consideration needs to be given to how projects are delivered, when work is scheduled and health & safety. Projects vary in size and requirements, ranging from national Wi-Fi surveys with Network Rail premises to installing network cabling, AV cabling, monitors and VoIP telephone handsets.

Network Rail’s offices, stations and maintenance depots are spread right across Scotland, from Wick in the north to Dumfries in the south, and we have carried out work on many of their sites. Each presents its own unique challenges, either thanks to their remote locations or their live nature. Work for Network Rail is ongoing as it continually invests in its infrastructure.

Additional works also included specialist AV cabling and mounting screens throughout the offices to display business critical information to allow monitoring in real-time. All of the data cabling outlets were patched out with a full patching schedule provided on completion which then involved the rollout of PCs, monitors and Cisco VoIP handsets onto desks. The VoIP handsets were programmed and tested to ensure the correct extensions were on the desk to minimise delays once the staff moved in – all of the work was managed under Network Rail’s strict health and safety policies.
