The Network Communications Division has carried out many projects on behalf of the Historic Royal Palaces at sites such as The Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Place, Kew Palace and The Banqueting Suite. Below is a sample of a project that was recently completed.
To design and install a communications infrastructure supporting voice and data throughout the estate for both operational use and commercial use, facilitating reliable connectivity in a resilient architecture.
The Network Communications Division was commissioned to supply and install in excess of 3,500 structured cabling outlets and countless miles of voice and fibre optic cabling within these buildings of historical importance.
The “Telecom project” was rolled out over a period of 4 years and during this time installation works were carried out various HRP sites such as the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and the Banqueting House Whitehall.
WT Parker has been instrumental to many events hosted by the Historic Royal Palaces such as international summits held at the Banqueting House, Whitehall which involved UK & US heads of state for which the company received high praise and commendation for the high quality of workmanship and the standards of efficiency and service.
The network communications division has been privileged to work in these important historical buildings and the company has developed an aptitude for working in this type of environment being sensitive to the constraints and issues when installing cabling infrastructure in and around historic/listed buildings particularly regarding the preservation of the fabric of the buildings with total discretion when working around members of the visiting public.
Ms Barbara Crow (Telecoms Manager) at The HRP comments:
“I have worked with W.T. Parker for over 10 years now in our 5 historic palaces. We are especially anxious to ensure that our cabling engineers are aware of the importance of preserving every inch of our historic fabric and WTP engineers consistently demonstrate a consistently high standard of installation while maintaining a sixth sense (and the first 5 senses as well) on when to stop and seek approval to proceed.
Our surveyors have commented to me that the standards W.T. Parker work to should be the example for all of our contractors to follow. WTP have worked on contracts worth several hundred thousand pounds and small individual contracts of a few hundred pounds and all are approached with the same care and attention”
