Here at Octopus Cabling, we’re committed to reducing our carbon footprint. We have introduced a range of measures to minimise waste across all of our operations.

At our headquarters in Colchester, Essex, we regularly sort and recycle our office rubbish, and we use a certified waste carrier for disposal of all items. 

All of our customer correspondence is carried out over the web wherever possible, and we only print what we absolutely need to. We’ll even send your cable testing results to you electronically so you can store and share them easily. 

When we’re onsite, we carry out our installation and maintenance projects thoughtfully to reduce waste and ensure any redundant materials are suitably recycled. All of our vehicles are regularly serviced and driven efficiently to keep fuel consumption to a minimum. 

Got a question about our environmental policy? Our team would be happy to talk you through our commitment to green issues.

Here's some genuine recent feedback from our customers...

  • “Jon and his team wired up my old Victorian property running Cat6 ethernet to each room and to a set of 6 CCTV cameras, as well as running shielded cables to my outbuildings (a games room and an office). It was very important to me that the age and condition of the property be taken into consideration (I didn’t want huge holes drilled through old beams/joists!) – Jon and his team completely respected this, making very tidy cable runs and cleaning up thoroughly. Performance (in particular latency) are critical to my work, Jon’s team took this into account by using high quality cable, having as few joins as possible and keeping the cable runs short (even though using longer cable runs and more joins would have been easier).

    The guys we’re far more interested in doing a good job than just getting it done quick, and it was very obvious by the results that this made a big difference. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Octopus Cabling and will certainly use them again.”

  • “ The re-launch of the Visitor Centre at Sandringham required a complete new fibre network to connect up both the new ANPR car parking system and EPOS to a dedicated network cupboard with dedicated broadband and 4G backup. The project was complex and required a contractor who was sympathetic to the needs of the operating business as well as able to work alongside a number of other trades. Jonathan and the team from Octopus were first rate, they provided a gigabit network using quality components and handed this over fully tested. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan and the team at Octopus to any similar such projects”

  • Having had Octopus carry out the work for two separate cabling infrastructure projects at the hospice, I would like to say how efficient and thorough your company was. Errol was always able to answer any questions we had and Octopus could not have been more flexible in responding to the ever changing deadlines on these projects. We have future projects in the pipeline and we will be using Octopus for these.
