CTG Become First UK Telecoms Firm to Complete New Building Assessment

The Complete Technology Group (CTG), which is a landlord advisory service that also runs sister company Complete Fibre (i.e. they install full fibre broadband infrastructure into large apartment blocks), has today become the first company in the telecoms sector to complete Stage 2 of the new Building a Safer Future (BSF) Champion Assessment.

As the name suggests, the non-profit BSF assessment is all about ensuring that building companies adopt the safest environment and practices – for both their workers and residents (i.e. putting people’s safety first in how companies design, build, and maintain the built environment). Champion status is thus granted to organisations that can successfully demonstrate their leadership, culture and processes have building safety and risk reduction embedded within them.

Suffice to say, CTG have just completed the second phase of this assessment (they previously achieved the first phase) and they’re the first company in the UK telecoms sector to do so.

Chris McLain, CEO of CTG, said:

“CTG is not only committed to meeting industry standards but exceeding them and we’re delighted to continue our building safety journey with BSF Champion status. The process requires us to open ourselves up to scrutiny, uncovering any blind spots in our approach to building safety. So, to successfully complete the second stage – and become the only telecoms firm to do so – is testimony to our people and our culture.

We’re improving safety and quality of fibre installations in blocks of flats through our robust audit and adherence to Golden Thread principles. We’ve followed an incredibly detailed and independent review across our entities to achieve BSF status, giving landlords, residents and telcos confidence in our governance and the quality of what we do.”

Just to be clear, Complete Fibre installs full fibre infrastructure in MDUs, but this is designed to be harnessed by multiple Internet Service Providers to ‘plug and play’, reducing the need for multiple installations, and maintaining the structural integrity of MDUs. But equally, not every network operator wants to work with this sort of solution and many would rather do their own installs, which can sometimes create a point of contention.
