About HOST

HOST has the huge undertaking of providing accommodation for all 1,496 contractors who work at the Hinkley Point nuclear power station – a £26 billion government project and an EDF-run project. The business’ mission is to provide a modern, comfortable environment for contractors to live and relax in after work, making campuses a home from home whilst the site is being built.

The Challenge

When the first campus opened its doors, HOST’s incumbent provider had four fulltime engineers permanently onsite. It was a costly and rigid format which offered few options to adapt and innovate as the site evolved and new technologies became available. HOST needed a full, end-to-end solution covering every aspect of its IT needs.

The Solution

After a seamless integration, we now deliver remote management and monitoring of all of HOST’s IT on both campuses as part of a five-year support contract which includes all IT infrastructure, networking, connectivity and management as well as enterprise-grade security and resiliency.

Wanstor have been a breath of fresh air. They are so proactive in making recommendations, both to improve our setup and to make cost savings."
