Company profile

Simon Balle School is a leading state school in the county town of Hertfordshire. With an excellent reputation for providing teaching that leads to great result and fantastic Ofsted reports year after year the school is committed to using the most up to date & cost effective technology available within their restricted budgets.

Business situation

The school planned to carry out major refurbishment to the Maths and History blocks. This made it necessary to install new om3 fibre backbones to the English, Music and 6th form blocks to allow them to remain as part of the larger data infrastructure

Technical situation

During the Survey process it was found that existing fibre & voice cabling was routed against potential risks to service. We planned to run the new cables through some existing unused ductwork that provided a better route. We designed further ductwork requirements.

Solution

CDS Cabling planned &installed the major works required. Even with an unforeseen stoppage due to asbestos removal we delivered on time. Working within a short holiday period the fibre & voice cable infrastructure was implemented, connected & tested. We also completed the installation of all projectors, speakers & screens in the new classrooms. All voice, data & AV was fully operational before school resumed at the beginning of the new term.
