CLIENT story
the white chapel building


Read on to hear how Coretek fitted out the entire IT infrastructure for this prestigious building, right in the heart of the capital for Derwent London.


THE ORGANISATION

Derwent London is one of London’s most innovative office specialist property regenerators and investors and are well known for their design-led philosophy and creative management approach to development.

They own and manage over 5.5 million sq ft in their portfolio. The majority of their property is in central London, especially the West End and City of London.

THEIR IT CHALLENGES

The White Chapel Building, in the Aldgate area of London, is an impressive state-of-the-art office building. The building was acquired by Derwent in December 2015 and provides approximately 273,000 sq ft of office space.

An experienced and reliable contractor was required to supply network cabling, CCTV, access control and wireless connectivity throughout the site.

Coretek were delighted to be selected to provide the infrastructure requirements for this prestigious redevelopment project.

OUR SOLUTION

Starting with the structured cabling to provide a reliable foundation for all of the additional services to be layered on top, CAT 6A cabling was installed throughout. This provided plenty of future scope, with ample capacity for network connected devices and with provision for 10 Gigabit speeds.

Structured cabling was run to various locations around the building to provide connectivity for devices such as access points, CCTV cameras and access control points.

Separate networks were configured to isolate different types of traffic such as communications, security and data, ensuring quality of service for each. Having these converged communications connected over IP made the entire network far easier to maintain and manage.

One of the primary services supplied was the provision of a building-wide wireless network, to provide reliable, fast wireless coverage across the entire site.

IP telephony was also installed in to the building, providing the maintenance and security teams with wireless communications devices.

Following the completion of this project, this veritable business hub now has the necessary technology foundations in place to service all of their tenants and guests with the high standards that Derwent are renowned for.

THE FUTURE

This project was a fantastic experience and a real showcase for our services to be used in such a prestigious building in the heart of London.

Coretek continue to work closely with the security and management teams at The White Chapel Building, providing on-going support for the network and their technology requirements.
