Client Experience

Wavensmere Homes Limited are award-winning property developers who specialise in unique restoration projects.

Wavensmere Homes are a residential developer with a passion for authenticity, who are rapidly expanding across several new developmentsThey first approached UK Connect in 2019, when they were looking for a reliable broadband provider for a large development in Birmingham.  


Over 900 homes, 3 site offices and 1 broadband provider: Wavensmere Homes sees rapid expansion and requirement for instant connectivity

No matter where a new development arises, the requirement for rapid on-site connectivity often remains the same. UK Connect understands the huge amount of pressure residential developers, such as Wavensmere Homes, face.

The priority is to ensure that all homes on site are built on time and to a high standard, and the pressure further mounts the larger the development gets. With fixed-line broadband providers taking anywhere between three and twelve months, sometimes even longer, this simply does not suffice when connectivity is needed on-site in an instant.

This necessity for rapid onsite connectivity, combined with an increasing number of developments, is the reason why the relationship with UK Connect and Wavensmere Homes has grown, but of course, not just any broadband provider will do.

More than just a broadband solution

The housebuilder was next on the lookout for instant connectivity on a large site, of over 900 homes, at the Nightingale Quarter in Derby. Due to the size of the development, there are three site offices, all of which required independent connectivity.  

Staff on-site need to have the freedom to focus on meeting targets, to ensure they stay on schedule. Although broadband may seem like a simple communications solution, it really is the piece of the puzzle that allows staff to achieve their goals, doing so with maximum efficiency.   

 However, on a large development such as the Nightingale Quarter in Derby, a broadband solution can only help its users to achieve these targets if it is reliable, secure and robust. UK Connect’s broadband solution is exactly that.  

 The solution offers superfast broadband speed anywhere across the UK, and in partnership with Cradlepoint, the market leader in Wireless Edge WAN Solutions, our routers are industry-leading and ruggedised – perfect for construction sites.  

Ben Clarke, Technical Director at Wavensmere Homes comments on why he chose UK Connect:  

There are multiple reasons as to why UK Connect are the right connectivity provider for us. With a guarantee to get our sites connected in under 10 days, which is usually beaten, and a clear pricing structure, the process of getting our sites connected couldn’t be easier. UK Connect always take the service one step further and staff are always friendly and quick to respond.

Ultimately staff on-site are securely and effectively connected, so that they can focus on what really matters – building and selling homes. Beyond this, Wavensmere Homes are assigned an Account Manager who is dedicated to ensuring that any new IT and connectivity requirements are dealt with, so that the housebuilder can work to maximum efficiency without having to worry about their IT infrastructure.     

KatDixon, Account Manager at UK Connect, looks forward to working with Wavensmere Homes as the developer grows:  

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ben and his team since May this year, and in that short time it’s been fantastic to get to know their business and support with their connectivity demands. I look forward to helping Wavensmere Homes with any new connectivity requirements as their sites progress, particularly as the company is expanding rapidly.
