is important to understand that network installations costs can vary based on many different
factors, these include:

Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6a, Cat7, Single-mode Fibre, Multi-mode fibre and more.

Installation

Installation Environment

Installation
environment?

Warehousing, construction sites, work at height, offices, retail, external and outdoor events, underfloor and data centre.

Containment Requirements

management?

Are cable management systems required at the cabinet end. Examples include NeatPatch, vertical cable management and cable management bars.

Cabling Removal

Existing cabling
removal?

Is there an existing cabling system that needs decommissioning and removing?

Access Restriction

Access
restriction?

Can the network installation contractor complete works without restriction? Will employees or third party contractors be restricting access to site or areas within the site during the project?

required?

You will need to consider any third-party electricians costs for providing power and earthing connections for the comms cabinets if the network installation contractor can’t accommodate the power works.
