Cricket victory for Amillan
Amillan has been appointed to install the communications infrastructure at the new Edgbaston Stadium for Warwickshire County Cricket Club.
The Amillan project team began work at the end of January and the installation will be delivered in conjunction with Hulse Electrical Mechanical Engineering Services.
In the advanced stages of construction with Galliford Try and due for completion by July 2011, Edgbaston Stadium’s building work is part of a venue wide refurbishment programme based on a design by Broadway Malyan. Accessed via a new main entrance, the venue will seat 8,250 spectators and include media and press rooms, a members’ area, catering services and a museum.
The technical solution developed by Amillan with Hulse Electrical is a complex system that will support a number of advanced services for WCCC over a blend of fibre optics and copper. It will deliver over 1,000 access points throughout the entire venue including interior and exterior areas. The design specification has overcome the challenges of integrating the existing building with the new scheme in a single seamless network.
