Moving CCTV Recording Equipment for a Colchester School

Date: 5 October 2022

The Facilities Managers for a Colchester secondary school got in touch. They wanted to move part of their CCTV System.

A refurbishment was taking place at the School and some offices were being moved around.

One of the changes involved the Site Office. This was the location for the existing CCTV recording equipment.

So it needed to moved to the new Site Office.

But the School still needed to have CCTV coverage during the building work.

The best way to do this was to get that job done first. Before the other building work started.

The Facilities Management Company accepted our quote for this.


The job involved:

  • removing the existing CCTV recording equipment from the original Site Office;
  • extending the existing cables from the original Site Office to the new Site Office;
  • re-installing the existing recording equipment to the new Site Office; and
  • re-connecting the extended cables.

Once the work was complete, we tested and commissioned the system.

Our engineers then returned to Colchester to tidy and make good at the School.


The before and after photos show the extent of the cabling used to complete the works.

The client told us that they were pleased with the works carried out. And the engineers who did the alterations.
