Ardmuir Student Accommodation were developing a 155 bed student accommodation property in the heart of Edinburgh’s student zone.
G5 Technologies were awarded the contract to design, deliver and support the Wi-Fi network after having successfully installed Wi-Fi for their Aberdeen based student flats.
Being involved at the planning stage was crucial and the Wi-Fi network was designed based on architect drawings and backed up by an on-onsite survey during the construction stage. All of the infrastructure cabling was then carried out to support the Wi-Fi Network.
G5 dealt directly with BT to coordinate the installation of the internet connections and analogue lines required before the building was handed over to Edinburgh University. Nearing the end of the construction phase of the building a buyer came forward and the building was subsequently sold a few weeks before the handover of the building was completed.
G5 Technologies successfully commissioned and made live the Wi-Fi network in time for the students moving in. We are quite proud of this achievement, given the developer had taken on the operation of 9 new developments during the summer of 2014 and only 4 of the buildings had operational Wi-Fi in time for the students moving in, G5’s being one of them.
