Since their inception in 1991, The Orders of St John Care Trust have grown significantly from the original management of 16 homes in Lincolnshire, to the operation of 68 care homes and 12 extra care housing schemes. Currently employing approximately 4000 staff, OSJCT are responsible for the care of over 3500 residents.
As part of their continued growth, the Trust are overseeing the construction of multiple care homes, including The Lakes Care Centre, opening in South Cerney near Cirencester.
Adaptive IT's Solution
Following the successful tendering of the Structured Cabling package through M&S Electrical, Adaptive IT undertook the installation of 285 Cat5e data outlets plus a minimum of 26 outlets for the home’s new WiFi system.
The data cabling was patched into a brand new 42U data cabinet, sited in the comms room, and terminated in RJ45 faceplates throughout the home.
All outlets were labelled and tested ready for the client.
Due to open in March 2017, The Lakes Care Centre is designed specifically to enhance the quality of life of people living with dementia.
Working alongside other contractors, we managed to complete this project in a short timeframe to an exacting standard. It was a pleasure to work again with M&S Electrical and we look forward to our future business both with them and within the Care Sector.Raymond Phillips
