Business Situation:

Cory Environmental had been appointed by Cornwall Council as the preferred bidder for the contract to collect Cornwall’s waste and recycling.

  • Kingshill – Bude
  • Moorswater – Liskard
  • St Erth – Hayle
  • Windwhistle – Bodmin
  • Tregongeeves – St Austell

Technical Situation:

Working across six sites within the county, a comprehensive survey of each site was carried out to ascertain individual needs. The products were carefully selected to deal with the different challenges that the individual sites posed. A report was produced to qualify specifications and give transparency to cost and time frames.

“All tenders were evaluated using a strict set of criteria, and CDS Cabling scored highest on value and quality aspects of the evaluation process.”

Solution:

CDS Cabling Ltd was chosen to design & implement the Cabling infrastructure to provide a complete solution so the company could share data fast & securely across the county and internally UK wide.

By using the existing Newham site in Truro as a base, CDS Cabling was able to implement every installation of structured Cat 5, fibre, connectivity & cabinetry across the sites in a smooth & organised manner. In addition the phone system was installed and is now managed under a service contract offering remote & onsite support.

‘Their teams are well trained, conscientious & always deliver on time, to budget.’

Benefits:

CDS Cabling were able to provide Cory with turnkey solutions for each individual site, meaning that all six depots infrastructure were functioning to the optimum level of performance immediately. With all new & legacy cabling correctly inspected, tested & labelled this enabled the clients internal IT Team to execute their installation efficiently & effectively making the handover of the Cornwall Contract seamless.
