Our client run and operate bus routes in London carrying over 720,000 passengers a day with a fleet of 1682 buses including over 100 hybrid buses that have the highest environmental credentials available.
The Installation Project
Project Skills Solutions were engaged to provide a range of services to our client after their acquisition of several new bus terminals.
The new premises required IT networks, electrical system and Air Conditioning system upgrades plus modification to allow integration of these systems and bring upto the required operational standards.
All sites had to be surveyed and a proposal to meet the multiple service requirements with costs for the client to approve prior to commencement.
These works had to be carried out in live working environments so our engineers had to provide these services without disruption to the busy working environments. Works involved the expansion of local area IT networks for the transfer of system data throughout the buildings and also provide live route data to their travelling clients. This required our cabling engineers to install new cat5e cabling and containment to provide a route between the outlet positions and the patching racks. Some installations required new patching racks due to insufficient capacity in the existing racks.
Additionally new air-conditioning systems have been installed in key locations for climate control of equipment and occupants. This involved new internal units and pipework connections through the buildings to the external condensor units.
Works had to be carried out to tight timelines to allow the smooth transition of their operations in the new Bus terminals around North and West London.
All works were fully tested and certified and will be supported with ongoing maintenance agreements.
