Case Study

Cruden Group

Fully Managed Site Connectivity

Cruden Group - Canonmills Garden, Edinburgh

Founded in 1943, Cruden Group is one of Scotland’s largest independent development and construction groups. Cruden Group has developed over 130,000 properties, working with local authorities, Registered Social Landlords, and Government bodies. Cruden Group has delivered extensive construction activity within the commercial, leisure, health, retail, and education sectors.

Canonmills Garden is a private 180-property residential development located on the Water of Leith River in Edinburgh. As principal contractor, Cruden Group approached Clarus to deliver a connectivity solution for the construction site team.

The Challenge

With previous solutions not able to provide a good enough connection to support the project’s needs, Clarus was approached to implement a network for 40+ users on the construction site. 

The solution had to provide enough speed and bandwith to support:

  • Video conferencing
  • Building Information Modelling (BIM) software
  • CAD software’s large upload and download file sizes

The Solution

Clarus engineers conducted a detailed survey, including spectrum analysis of all available mobile networks to identify the fastest and most stable mobile operator frequencies.

We then installed our industrial-grade M2M LTE device which maximises data speeds and connectivity in any location. This works particularly well in remote locations where other devices cannot deliver the required bandwidth and speeds.

For this project, we implemented a dual network, load-balanced solution. This solution offers the combined speeds and network resilience of two networks, with auto-failover, should one network ever go down.

We also installed two Wireless Access Points, with dedicated access allocated to Cruden Group employees and its subcontractors. 

The Results

Clarus provided the site with seamless connectivity, providing a high speed connection that allowed Cruden Group and its subcontractors to be connected like they are working from the office.

Fully networked site offices, allowing employees to access and share plans, CAD drawings and to collaborate with other colleagues across Cruden Group.

Instant communication with Head Office, partners, suppliers and the community.
