Solihull Sixth Form College is a further education college for students aged 16 to 19. It is situated on the outskirts of Solihull in the West Midlands and draws students from across Solihull and Birmingham. Founded in 1974, the college consists of several large buildings on a single site.
The college required the installation of a new Category 6 structured cabling system to replace their existing Category 5e cabling across multiple buildings.
Due to the type of environment and most areas being occupied by pupils and staff, it was crucial that the site remained connected at all times. Therefore, Comfinity proposed a plan to install the new Category 6 cabling alongside their current network and strip-out the Category 5e during the summer holidays when the site is less occupied.
The project consisted of installing a new Excel Category 6 UTP structured cabling system throughout numerous buildings, including Hampton, Brueton, Blythe and Malvern. The new cabling system will support the requirements of all voice, data, wireless, CCTV and access control.
In addition to this, we installed a complete end-to-end basket containment system, supporting the new cabling requirements to maximise the fire safety of the college.
