PW Data Group – Technology in Education Case Studies:
Now approaching its 50th year, Lancaster University is a world class campus for teaching and research and is located in a beautiful campus in the North West of England. Lancaster University is one of the UK’s top universities, consistently highly ranked in the UK league tables and established as a world player in research and teaching as reflected in its rising global league table position.
The “Now Society” and the demands of students on campus today for technology and particularly access to the internet and external resources through wireless technology is seen as a major differentiator when it comes to student accommodation selection. To address this issue and to improve the student experience, Lancaster University made a strategic decision in May 2012 to extend its campus Cisco wireless infrastructure into the retained residence on the campus.
PW Data Group were successful in securing the business through a formal tender process which included the requirement to be the principle contractor for Health & safety under CDM regulations on site.
