One Technology Square

One Technology Square

Arch and Godfrey commenced work on the new headquarters for Cable & Wireless, one of Cayman’s leading telecommunications providers, in 2002. The three storey, reinforced concrete building was engineered to withstand 200 mph winds – the first of its kind in Cayman. The structure added approximately 37,000 square feet of space, which allowed for a state-of-the-art exchange facility and the relocation of vital components from the company’s older buildings to a new, custom-built space. A vast amount of additional work was incorporated into the scope to allow for office fit-outs on the first and third floors, and the complete renovation of the existing Co-Ax Building, including upgrading the roof to the same 200 mph rating as the new building. The Co-Ax building houses sensitive equipment that controls all international data for Cayman and the computer data systems responsible for billing. All of this equipment remained in situ and operational 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, for the duration of the works which required daily inspections and method statements to ensure the uninterrupted business of the whole Exchange.
