Been a bit of a rollercoaster ride over the last few weeks, and a lot of people have worked very hard to get in ready to open. We've been installing and testing the network, wired and wireless, telephones, PCs, specialist AV equipment, creative media equipment and lots more! Yesterday many CiCS staff were in sorting the last few things out, but also going above and beyond - clearing up rubbish, unwrapping furniture, and reprogramming the plasma screens to show floor layout. We even built a diary room designed by Ian, and printed in immaculate fashion by our Print and Design service. From this:

Since then it's had a screen, camera and microphone installed and we've been recording visitors reactions to the building all day.
