Countrywide Telecoms, provider of specialist communication services to the UK construction industry, has been appointed as a strategic partner by Taylor Wimpey, one of the country’s largest residential developers, to deliver high-speed broadband services to its sites and sales offices.
Site Connect, Countrywide Telecoms’ internet connection solution for construction sites, provides the vital communication links required by developers from the moment building starts and throughout the sales cycle. The technology will be deployed to Taylor Wimpey developments this year, as well as to onsite sales offices and marketing suites.
Andy Feldon, IT Director at Taylor Wimpey, said: “Even with all the technological advances we’ve seen over the past few decades, the fundamental issue the industry has struggled with since the 1990s is connectivity on construction sites before a full IT infrastructure is in place. High speed broadband and an efficient communication system is mission critical, and we look forward to seeing Site Connect rolled out across Taylor Wimpey’s developments.”
Site Connect makes use of the latest advancements in technology to provide secure, rapid internet access wherever installed. Where traditional fixed line providers can take weeks and often months to set up a working service, Countrywide Telecoms delivers full connectivity within a matter of days.
PJ Farr, Founder and Managing Director of Countrywide Telecoms, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Taylor Wimpey, and are excited by the opportunity that this partnership presents to grow our business. Countrywide Telecoms is now providing connectivity solutions to some of the UK’s leading construction companies, but as we continue to grow we will maintain the ‘hands on’ approach that we have always taken, allowing us to act promptly to provide a secure and reliable network.
“Construction professionals need fast and reliable connectivity as soon as work begins onsite; Site Connect delivers this. The practicality of our product also ensures that when it’s no longer required, it can be simply picked up and reused in another location, making it a financially viable solution too.”
