The school holidays are always a busy time for our IT department and 2022 was no exception! Many schools take advantage of the empty premises to minimise disruption to the pupils. Our engineers worked in schools across the country, completing a range of jobs such as fibre optic and audio visual installations. This often involves working away to complete the work on time!
We designed and installed new cabling at Giggleswick School to enable it to be futureproofed so the network can grow without replacing cables in the future.
“This summer Paul and the team helped MSP LAB deliver an extensive fibre replacement rollout for a large, prestigious Independent School client in Yorkshire. As always, Officeworx exceeded our expectations and delivered on time, on budget, and delighted our client in the process. We trust Officeworx for all of ourstructured cabling and fibre requirements, and never hesitate to put them in front of our clients. You can depend on Officeworx, and we are very fortunate to have such a strong partnership.”
Dean Turner, Chief Operating Officer, MSP LAB
The summer holidays saw us replace some existing interactive screens with 83 new SMART interactive screens across 2 schools in an academy trust in Swindon.
“Officeworx once again delivered on our project ahead of time and to a perfect standard. Throughout this project we were met with delays and unexpected issues outside of our project, however the Officeworx team were able to offer key advice and solutions to combat this. This project covered the de-installation, recycling and install of over 80 Smart Interactive panels across two sites. The team, as ever, were friendly and approachable with nothing being too much trouble for them to facilitate.”

On top of our installation services, we offer a fault finding service using our singlemode and multimode OTDRs. These can often find a fibre fault within a few minutes, making it fast and efficient should your network stop working and stopping any guesswork.
Once faults are located, we can work to repair these in the best way possible, sometimes via a temporary fix before a full repair is put in place.
As well as installing new fibre optic cabling, we also terminate and test cables, sometimes installed by others.
Our audio visual installations can range from interactive whiteboards and projectors to interactive screens and TVs.
Our engineers can remove existing installations and dispose of them with full WEEE compliance and replace with new. Where we can, we donate working equipment to other schools and local charities, such as IT Schools for Africa, where even secondhand equipment can make a huge difference to others.
“Officeworx are a fabulous team with a committed social responsibility. They make a real difference in the local community by supporting numerous charities. Thank you for your ongoing support!”
