Project Skills Solutions were asked to supply installation services for their client, on UK wide MOD Communications Project.
The MOD Communications Project
There were three main projects that we were involved in:
- Common Core Platform (installation of the WAN fibre connection to a common node)
- High Speed Upgrade of Routers, including cabling, electrical and racks (compliance upgrade of equipment to meet JSP480)
- Secure Communications
Project Skills Solutions carried out regular surveys across the UK within 5 days of receipt, our engineers would then prepare a quotation from a pre agreed template rate schedule. We would the carry out installations within 10 days of receipt of an order. This project required the management and organisation of a fleet of vehicles and dedicated team of engineers to ensure surveys and installations were carried out in the agreed time frame.
All MOD base surveys and installations were arranged and booked through our office based project support team, and the engineers managed logistically to meet the required numbers and time scales. Our project management experience is extensive and was vital during a project such as this. Engineers had to be security cleared and conversant with JSP480 standards to meet the high levels of quality required for the contract.
The project demanded tight adherence to milestones and delivery that were met around the challenging military arena. Installations had to be carried out in critically operational areas without disruption to all ranks.
