Caledonian Modular uses i-MO for their site based management and installation teams.
Caledonian Modular, part of the Caledonian Group was established 20 years ago as a specialist manufacturer and supplier of “off-site” building systems.
Today Caledonian Modular is using it’s unique expertise in off-site construction systems to deliver projects from school buildings and offices through to medium and high-rise hotels, student halls and residential blocks, as well as accommodation for the Custodial and Military sectors.
Recently Caledonian has commenced work on a £121 million Ministry of Defence (MoD)/Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) contract for Hercules, a joint venture between Kier Group and Balfour Beatty. The project at Lyneham, Wiltshire, will transform the former RAF airbase into the new Defence College of Technical Training. As part of Phase I of the overall project, the new facility will provide a total of 1139 bedrooms plus communal rooms and entrance foyers at a value to Caledonian Modular of £27.5m.
In common with many construction sites Caledonian found that it was not viable to install conventional fixed line connections (BT) at this location, so, in order to ensure the site based management and installation teams had full and efficient access to their Newark Head Office services, Caledonian decided to implement the i-MO (Intelligent Mobile Office).
Tristan Dixon, IT Manager for Caledonian Modular commented…….
“The i-MO unit was chosen to provide high bandwidth, redundant, wireless connectivity. The solution also provides a platform to enhance our site based activities with services such as video conferencing.”
