176,000 sq. ft distribution centre

176,000 sq. ft distribution centre

The requirement…

In April, Torque secured a new 176,000 sq. ft distribution centre at Wakefield Europort, Castleford, which now becomes there seventh operational site in the UK. Smartideas UK were appointed to design and install a data network to accommodate the rapidly growing site.

The solution…

A suitable location was established to house the main communications cabinet and 8 core OM4 50/125μm tight buffered optical fibre cables installed to the periphery cabinet locations. Diverse fibre optic cable runs were employed to ensure back up connections should any fibre optic cable be damaged or compromised in the future.

Fibre optic cables were spliced and terminated using an Innoview 6 fusion splicer and tested for integrity and data with an Ideal networks fibre optic verifier.

The communication cabinets we installed at strategic locations throughout the site to ensure all areas and levels would have data connectivity as the site was populated.

The feedback…

" Torque started to work with Smart Ideas in 2015 and the service provided in all respects has been very professional and of good quality. The company has shown a caring positive attitude in all areas. Our business is fast paced and has grown at an alarming rate with many changes, so we needed to build a close working relationship to call on a business when in need of quick results. Smart Ideas provide that and always go the extra mile which is appreciated "
