Background

GKR Scaffolding is an award winning business based in Medway, whose projects include The Shard and the new Bloomberg European Headquarters. Working with partners including Mace and McAlpine, they are in a high profile sector in which professionalism and efficiency are paramount.

  • Multi-site network management
  • All IT services under one roof

Project description

Due to an ever growing London based workforce GKR decided to set up a London office which would enable management staff to be nearer to construction sites, whilst keeping their main Medway base.  The majority of workers spend a considerable amount of time out in the field and onsite so it’s essential that they have access to relevant files, systems and emails at all times. We implemented new, high speed internet connections and configured the London office to work seamlessly with the Head Office network, giving all employees the opportunity to work efficiently from either office and access their email and data remotely at any time.

The changes we implemented have streamlined processes, facilitated cross-team communication and allowed for instant access to key documents 24/7.

The Technology used for this project

  • Microsoft Windows 7 Desktops
  • Draytek routers
