UK Connect’s partnership with Barratt Homes

Barratt Homes study

UK Connect solution Site Connect has been a partner of Barratt PLC for over two years. To commemorate the anniversary of the partnership, UK Connect break down the approach they took when approaching the industry-wide issue Barratt found themselves suffering from. This issue is the ubiquitous inability to get connected on-site. As a result, Site Connect was deployed onto both sales suites and site offices across the UK.


Barratt PLC came to Countrywide Telecoms back in 2014 to look for a broadband solution that could meet their requirements. We recommended Site Connect to the group, as this solution fitted their requirements and solved the issues that Barratt PLC and many other developers face.

Key Requirements requested by the client

  • Rapid deployment – Site Connect can be deployed anywhere in the UK within 10 days
  • Cost – In comparison to waiting for a BT line, or the cost of fitting telegraph poles and ducting, Site Connect offers fantastic ROI and cost
  • Reliability – Site Connect benefits from 99.8% up time
  • Secure – All data sent over our network can be sent via a VPN and is encrypted at the deployment site and head end with 256 bit encryption

Site Connect is taking the industry by storm

Site Connect solution is the one size fits all solution for construction sites suffering with slow or no internet connectivity. So far Site Connect is in use across the UK and it is not only Barratt PLC using the solution; Site Connect is causing a storm within the industry with construction giants such as Bellway Homes, Galliford Try, Linden Homes and Redrow homes on board.

Barratt PLC met with the UK Connect MD PJ Farr recently to discuss future requirements and we are proud to report that Site Connect will be rolled out over many more sites this year and UK Connect continues to be an integral part of the Barratt PLC I.T strategy.
