Thanks everyone, its amazing how hard it is to do this stuff on your own.
Things I have learned.
Unpacking 50pcs can take 5 - 8 hours
Moving 250kgs of servers switches and cabinet can be hard work.
Moving 1.5 tonnes of PC's from one side of the school to the other is something I don't want to do again any time soon.
HP supply their top end severs with CD drives despite the server software coming on DVD's

Firstly excellent job Suite looks really good the only thing i would change is the seating as we have been informed by our H&S exec that the chairs have to rotate to save twisting the spine with a fixed gas lift up and down for personal height adjustment for viewing the screen at the correct height.
Just an observation not being picky as all looks really well.

I can sympathise. Had to shift a ton of kit down a flight of stairs myself... next time I'm calling in reinforcements!

I can sympathise also one of my first major IT jobs I did at my old High School was moveing 32 old school (read heavy with CRTs) computers from an upstairs lab to the other side of the school. Then carrying the 32 new computers up the stairs and doing the unpack. Luckily they did let me use the school van to get them to the other side of the school but its still tough going doing it all in a short period of time.
The new suite looks really good and massive in comparision to any of the school based labs that I have seen.

Ooh - we've just outfitted a new ICT suite with SCL's all-in-one PCs:
18 all-in-ones running Windows XP and with two network connections and eSATA ports apiece.

oooh nice pics!
May get SCL to quote us!
Been asked to get quotes to revamp 2 of our ICT Suites! though I'm pushing for all 4 ICT Suite!
Amazing what OFSTED can do
each suite has about 31 PCs so it'd be about 124 if i can get them to do the other 2 as well!
