Abzorb Completes Hotel Football's Network

Posted 8 years ago

Earlier this year, Abzorb secured a major contract to install a fully integrated network cabling solution at Hotel Football, a £23m project developed by GG Hospitality, a management company set up by former Manchester United players Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville together with The Old Trafford Supporters’ Club. The work was awarded by NWP Ltd, the project’s Mechanical and Electrical contractor.

Located next to Manchester United’s famous Old Trafford stadium, the football themed hotel has 4 floors containing retail, business and leisure facilities including bars, restaurants, café, gym, shop and a first floor conference area, with a further 7 upper floors comprising 139 hotel rooms. A roof-top mini five-a-side football pitch which doubles as an event space completes the football themed vision.

Abzorb has now completed the voice and data network cabling and a 200 point digital TV distribution system at the prestigious development. 

Using Draka’s UC Connect cabling system, recommended by cable distributor Comtec Cable Accessories, Abzorb installed Cat 6 cabling for the hotel’s wireless network, point of sales, and staff PCs as well as telephones in staff areas and the hotel bedrooms.

The cat 6 cables were installed and routed to a comms cabinet on each floor. These were connected to the main ground floor server room with fibre optic cables.

Kev Hall, Director of Abzorb Networks, “Winning this project was a real accomplishment for Abzorb, and although we have had to deal with a difficult construction programme, with various delays, we have now successfully completed the install. This was another positive partnership between Abzorb and NWP, and we look forward to working with them on future projects.”

The hotel and club is due to open imminently.
