Franklin Mint produce “collectibles” predominantly marketed in the UK via the Sunday Broadsheets and magazines.
Based in South London, their lease was coming up to expiry due to a planned development on their site at Catford and they needed to relocate.
The 360ict Ltd. project team drafted the technical specification for the physical environment at their new premises in Londons Docklands to include equipment room and desk plan layout.
We liased with M &E contractors and also installed the structured cabling system. Our relocations team was mobilised and physically relocated the complete IT infrastructure after full planning, back up and decommissioning.
Server transportation was via our fleet of unmarked estate cars fitted with security glazing. Mounted within these vehicles is a 19” server case that can accommodate up to 12U of equipment. Our vehicles are driven by IT engineers who understand the tolerances and sensitivity of delicate electronics.
Each user’s desktop configuration was boxed, packed and marked individually so that it could be reinstalled swiftly at the new desk position.
The Franklin Mint continued to to operate throughout the move weekend with revenue unaffected. All back office systems were live on the Monday morning with on site engineering contingency to assist users with new login and ensure all printers were available.
“This major project was completed without a hitch, with much appreciation to 360ict”
