Why is high-speed broadband fundamental on construction sites from the start?

The right infrastructure is vital for a construction site to function effectively and efficiently from the outset. Gas and electricity supplies, water mains and transport access are all absolutely fundamental to the success of a well-operated site. Equally important is the internet connection and this is often overlooked until the day everyone arrives to start the project, but invariably it can take months for the main providers to deliver the service.

Why is internet connection so essential from the very beginning?

It improves productivity

Even before the hoarding goes up, the construction team requires instant and constant connectivity with head office and architects, sub-contractors, suppliers and building control to name but a few. Working from a mobile to address emails or going back to head office every time they have to print off a plan or drawing detail is simply not practical if productivity is to be maintained.

It supports sales and marketing teams

By the time the sales and marketing suite is complete and the date of the sales launch confirmed, internet access becomes critical not just for the construction team but also for the sales team. They need a variety of tools at their disposal to excite their prospective new buyers that rely on an internet connection; from making touch screens work quickly, view hi-resolution site and floor plans and view on-screen CGIs and virtual reality walk-throughs, these empower the sales team to make that successful sale.

Helps new homeowners settle in and reduces customer complaints

From the moment a buyer moves into their new home they want internet access – and developers want happy customers and good survey reports. But most broadband providers have to wait until the buyer is moved in before they can install their service and that can take some time.

UK Connect has a solution that solves all three of these problems: Site Connect gets project offices and sales and marketing suites up and running within ten days from the point of order while developers who take advantage of UK Connect’s Home Connect can ensure their new residents have broadband from the day they move in until a fixed line is installed.
