Property developers executive briefing

Our Openreach CEO, Clive Selley and Kim Mears, our managing director for infrastructure delivery, hosted a briefing and networking event with leading developers, managing agents and industry partners in London on Wednesday 22ndMarch.

We were able to present some awards to acknowledge some of the success we had working with developers in the last year. The categories were:

·        The highest ratio of fibre to the premises (FTTP) sites registered this year.

·        The innovation award for most supportive trialist

·        The highest ratio of Developer Self-Install sites registered this year

·        The highest proportion of on time site registrations

We also launched some new items that developers had asked for to support their people on site:

Four new quick guides covering essential stages of building the infrastructure needed to support internet broadband service. They’re currently available  on-line as a PDF that can be viewed on a tablet or phone or printed locally. We are currently preparing copies on tear resistant paper that should stand up to the rigor of your construction site. These will available from your on-site Field Based Coordinator or your Development Relations Manager in mid-April.

The guides cover the laying of ducts and building of joint boxes outside the home. Then inside the home they cover the options for internal wiring and developer self-install of Openreach Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) equipment.

The developer self-install guide is supported by a short self-install video with our engineer showing the easy installation steps.

We’ve also updated the fibre handbook that explains in full ‘how to build a fibre infrastructure” also available on line.
