Brentwood staff and engineers have decades of combined expertise supplying communications solutions to large construction and infrastructure projects. We understand that the main priorities in such cases are reliability, clear audio, strong signal coverage and robust equipment that will withstand the potentially tough environments construction sites can create.
With these factors in mind, we supplied Skanska with a fleet of high performance Motorola digital two way radios. Motorola has been at the forefront of introducing digital technology into two way radio, producing handsets that benefit from better signal range, enhanced audio and rich feature sets.
We periodically reviewed the equipment supplied throughout the project to ensure it was still fit for purpose as the site developed. By the end, we were providing Motorola DP4400e handsets, part of the company’s premium E-Series digital range. The DP4400e features Motorola’s best ever audio technology, with intelligent volume control and advanced noise cancellation making it ideal for use around heavy machinery.
Built to exacting industrial standards, the DP4400e comes with an IP68 rating for water and dust protection, making it versatile enough to use indoors or out, and therefore ideal for a construction site. Its enhanced feature range includes private calling and work ticket allocation, while it also provides critical safety features such as a one-touch emergency button and Lone Worker monitoring to ensure high standards are always maintained.
With the size of the site in mind, we also supplied a Motorola DR3000 repeater together with an antenna system. Repeaters work by separating out send and receive signals from two way radio, making transmission more efficient and therefore increasing signal coverage.
With this support from Brentwood Communications, the hospital was completed on time in 2018, ready to be opened to patients in April 2019.
