Cisco Systems, Inc. is an American multinational technology company headquartered in San Jose, California, that designs, manufactures and sells networking equipment.


The purpose of this project was to reconfigure an existing Cisco Office so that additional personnel could be re-located and accommodated from another office building elsewhere in Moscow. The offices were occupied and therefore all our works had to be scheduled to take place outside their normal working hours and not cause any disruption to the employees.

The scope included reconstruction of existing closed offices with new glazed and gypsum walls, demolition of an existing partly occupied area to create a more functional meeting room, relocation of desks throughout (including therefore new electrical and data cabling solutions) in order to accommodate additional work stations.

Because of the increase in people utilisation of the space additional air conditioning had to be installed (VAV type) and the fire alarm & public address systems modified and extending (and linked back to the base building master systems)


Altaca have undertaken a number of projects for High-Technology Companies including Apple, Oracle, Mentor Graphics, Google, AMD and Nortel Networks
