The Business Cyber Centre (BCC) in Wiltshire is the UK’s first business Cyber Centre. As part of the SWLEP, the BCC aims to make all UK businesses more cyber secure enabling a greater level of resilience for UK businesses.
Preparing companies to be future ready
We believe that future-ready companies know who they are and what they stand for and grow by scaling up their ability to learn and innovate. The Business Cyber Centre brings together world-class resources, innovation, and opportunities to deliver an ecosystem dedicated to supporting and enabling safer growth of the UK cyber business. Visually Connected was delighted to contribute to their ambitious project to expand its local/regional roots to provide a national service offering to make businesses more cyber secure. Visually Connected delivered a whole building audiovisual solution to create a digital rich user-centric experience throughout.
An ambitious project that exceeded expectations
From concept, the 3.7m government-funded investment was mobilised in less than two years and the 3-story building was up and running in a little over 6 months – a fraction of the time and cost of its counterparts in Wales and Scotland.
The BCC is not just an aesthetically pleasing environment but an operationally efficient ‘multi-use’ environment combining architecture, design and integrated technology solutions – including, audio, video, video conferencing, control systems, acoustics panelling, ICT – network infrastructure & security and access solutions. The BCC is not just a space where people can collaborate and innovate without barriers, but a community and ecosystem committed to helping businesses grow safely.
This is no ordinary building, and the technology solution is equal in its operational efficiency and procured to the level needed where the focus remains entirely on its users.
