Our Client, FIA Services UK Ltd, recently relocated from the City to the 28th floor of One Canada Square. FIA requested us to project manage the provision of their telecommunications. The remit was that they had to keep their current telephone number and they needed the transition to be seamless and required broadband services be up and running before the office move took place.
We liaised closely with their Washington DC Head Office to gain a good understanding of their requirements. We also worked closely with BT Openreach, anticipating any potential problems with the relocation. In particular, we made the BT engineers aware that they were providing services to the 28th floor of the building.
One Canada Square is a very secure building where many health and safety measures had to be adhered to. We were able to ensure that the new lines were installed prior to the move date and that broadband services were in place. We installed a new phone system for them prior to the move and were able to provide continuous service as they moved from their old premises to new. Our engineer was on site on the first day in their new offices, but the textbook nature of the move meant he was only there enjoying the views from the 28th floor.
Another successful office move!
