We are often subcontracted by electrical and mechanical engineering companies to work on larger projects due to the growing importance and huge increase in the ICT element of many projects.
Main contractors use UTL because they realise how key to a project ICT and structured cabling has become and, therefore, choose to employ a specialist. Consequently, we now provide structured cabling expertise to some of the UK’s leading construction companies.
Given that the structured cabling element has become a considerable spend in any project’s budget, our expertise helps main contractors to achieve substantial savings on the overall job.
Secondly, and probably more importantly, by engaging specialist providers such as ourselves directly on a project, we can assist in the design and project management – and thus spot difficulties before they arise. We can also advise on cable routes, industry practices and health and safety issues.
Once a cabling infrastructure is in place and all the containment is closed and the final finishing and decorating has occurred, any unforeseen problems can be very expensive to fix. By providing advice and careful planning early on in a project, we can help avoid this scenario.
