Hill Dickinson LLP
The new offices of commercial law firm Hill Dickinson LLP are situated in the heart of Liverpool’s St. Paul’s business district, opposite the passport office and the Liverpool Echo building and rubbing shoulders with the city’s thriving firms of accountants, banks and financial services companies.
The offices are home to 576 people, gathered together for the first time following the amalgamation of four previous offices into the new space, occupying around 120,000 sq ft in the building, over seven floors, with the potential to extend the capacity of the office to around 700 people.
Digitech was appointed to design, supply and install a communications infrastructure throughout the entire building. Consisting of all user connection points, backbone systems, wireless infrastructure and AV connectivity, Digitech worked with appointed external Construction Management Consultants – Acies – regarding all aspects of design and progress.
The communications architecture consists of a Category 6 low smoke zero halogen horizontal cabling system radiating throughout each of the seven floors and servicing some 2000 user connection points. Each floor has its own communications hub, which in turn, are vertically connected to a primary communications room by means of resilient OM3 fibre systems.
The entire installation was underwritten and certified by Digitech in coordination with the product manufacturer namely Nexans PLC. And provided with a 25 year transmission warranty.
The project was designed, installed and managed by our in house team who worked in coordination with the appointed main contractor, Wates, architects Sheppard Robson & Audio Visual Supplier Asysco PLC.
