University of Gloucestershire, Oxstalls Campus
Elite 3 Trunking
The University of Gloucester has invested in the development of its existing Oxstalls campus, seeing the School of Business and Technology move to a brand new premises. The £16 million development will be the home of many courses including Law, accounting and finance and the expansion also sees the addition of a brand new sports facility, including 4G pitches and a new sports hall and stadium.
Atkore Marco has supplied a cable management specification to the project, with contractors opting to use the Elite 3 range for the housing of power and data cabling throughout.
Atkore Marco’s Elite 3 system is the pinnacle of the Marco range. Its aesthetically pleasing curved design makes it feel at home in almost any environment. The range is supported by a wide range of fittings and accessories which allow the trunking system to be installed almost anywhere, in multiple configurations. The Elite system is CAT6 as standard, conforming to the latest data cabling regulations, and offering built in guides to maintain bend radius, making the installation of cables as easy and convenient as possible on-site.
Adrian Ball, Electrical Wholesale Manager for Atkore Unistrut & Marco commented: “As Atkore Marco’s product range and services continue to grow, the brand continues to prove it’s ability to present itself as the go-to choice for cable management specifications across a number of sectors.
This project used our Elite 3 range, and benefitted from all that the product has to offer, including its highly specified features which include CAT6 compliance as standard.
It’s great to see Marco’s products opted for, and even better to see them as the perfect fit for the installation.
Atkore Marco’s products are a great fit for any education environment. Additional optional features such as the Anti-Microbial and DDA options really give installers the peace of mind that compliance for building regulations and public health can be met.”
The mechanical and electrical installation on the project was managed by T-Clarke, who are a nationwide building services contractor, specialising in mechanical, electrical and IT installs.
The project was completed in July 2018 and opened its doors to students the following academic year.
