Kompetenzzentrum Deisswil 16:9

cablex is investing in the future of public works.

The Communications department of the Civil Work unit primarily carries out civil engineering work to establish the conditions for network construction. It is thus part of the core business. With the establishment of the "Construction Competence Centre", cablex is investing in a concept that should lead to a higher in-house production rate, even more expertise and the better use of synergies.

cablex invests in the future of civil engineering.

Goals of the competence centre.

Ensuring quality and resources.

With the measures being taken in the Deisswil competence centre, cablex wants to take expertise in the construction segment to the next level. The ongoing development of learning processes plays just as decisive a role as increasing the degree of in-house production. In this way, the experience gained from projects can be retained within the company. And this is also a relevant plus point from the customer's perspective. In addition to this, with the planned higher degree of in-house production, customers can be sure that the work carried out will meet the high quality standard for which cablex stands. Guaranteeing quality and resources is therefore the main benefit.

Using synergies and achieving optimal results together.

cablex has ten public works sites throughout Switzerland and employs around 100 people in this segment. Synergies are to be used more strongly here by promoting cooperation across divisions: The focus here is on results-oriented cooperation and mutual promotion in order to achieve goals together and promote the highest quality standards.

Cost reduction and better handling of workload.

The competence centre is also expected to have a positive effect in terms of cost savings and efficiency, both on the company and the customer side. Optimal work and resource planning, for example, should lead to ideal capacity utilisation. The aim of optimised planning is also to plan transport routes more efficiently, and thus save time and costs.

A concept on the test bench and the pilot project in sight.

Think big, start small - that is the motto of the "Deisswil Competence Centre" project team. The concept presented convinced management. This clears the way for a practical test in which the concept itself will first be put to the test. The ongoing public works projects at the Deisswil site provide an opportunity to analyse the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and risks and to "refine" the concept once again. Following that, the second step will be the pilot phase.

The public works specialists based in Deisswil will also carry out the pilot project in early 2023. This will involve work on the construction of works pipelines to create the conditions for the expansion of the optical fibre network in Kirchberg. We are look forward to seeing how the concept can be transferred to a specific project and what conclusions and results can be derived from the pilot for the development of the competence centre. We wish Fabian Peter and his project team at the "Deisswil Competence Centre" every success and great results.
