Nexus Associates worked with Kier Construction and the design teams at Archial Norr to design the infrastructures to support all of the ICT within this large batch of schools. St Anthony’s –the sample scheme- had a particular set of challenges. We had to resolve issues related to early works and temporary decants as well as continuity of ICT services during construction and demolition of this a multiple site scheme. We developed the decant plans for each school; a soft landing programme and initial ICT support; thereby providing a complete end to end service.
