R&D (South Lab)- Those wires!

Post categories:

In the video report the other week we mentioned that there are a fair few miles of wiring going into the new building. We've just received some pretty cool images from the wiring work, and we thought you may like to see what 130+ miles of cabling being wrestled into a small office building looks like!

Even on the 3rd floor, where the management team and support staff are based, the connectivity is cutting edge.

We're now less than a week away from the first moves, with research teams due to occupy the lower floors by Monday the 15th of February.  Later that week it'll be our turn in the communications and knowledge management team to upsticks from Surrey, and the final batch of moves is just a few days after that. 

We'll go back with the cameras to shoot those historic scenes, and we've had lots of feedback to let us know that film is keenly anticipated.  Do check back with us on developments.

Oh, and sorry for last week's hiatus in posting.  There's a really good reason for it though, and we hope to share that too in the next couple of weeks.
