Secure I.T. Environments has completed a modular data centre design and build project for Proximity Data Centres.
The a 1 MW, 441 sqm facility was built into the ground floor of an existing building hosting data centres. The modular M&E design can handle a constant 1MW load, based across 200 cabinets, with the capacity to increase the load incrementally if required.
According to Secure I.T. Environments, the perimeter of the data centre was based on a 60 minute fire-rated modular wall and roof construction, with a separate UPS and switch room located in another area.
N+1 air conditioning has been used throughout the installation, as well as Novec fire suppression and VESDA detection, extraction systems, environmental controls and security systems.
John Hall, Managing Director, Colocation at Proximity Data Centres, said, “This was a significant expansion of the data centre services we offer at a key site, and we wanted to ensure the best possible outcomes. The data centre has been designed to achieve the best possible annualised PUE and Secure I.T. Environments has done an excellent job of delivering the project, handling every aspect of construction, installation and testing.”
Chris Wellfair, Projects Director at Secure I.T. Environments, added, “It is always great to work with clients that are truly committed to having the most energy efficient data centres. Having complete ownership of a data centre project, means we can ensure the most efficient build programme, and for our clients means they have only one place to go to get things done and discuss progress. It is great to be handing over this data centre to Proximity on time, in budget, and to a world class specification.”
