Fast Track data centre service delivers new data centre in just eight weeks
London UK, 12 January 2017 – Secure I.T.
Environments Ltd, one of the UK’s leading designers and builders of modular data centres, has today announced the completion of a new internal data centre for The Energy Systems Catapult, at its new head office in Birmingham, UK.
The new data centre, which is housed on the seventh floor of a central Birmingham office, was built on-time in just eight weeks. Key construction challenges included ensuring power supply cabling was adequate and could reach distribution boards, the close control air conditioning system condensers required extended pipework to enable the units to be housed on the roof.
The data centre has been built with raised flooring, cold aisle containment air conditioning, with great attention placed on ensuring space was utilised as efficiently as possible given restrictions of the physical building.
Environments was responsible for the design and delivery of the data centre which included power supply infrastructure, environmental controls, server racks, and UPS.
The Energy Systems Catapult’s vision is for a clean, intelligent energy system that works for people, communities and businesses.
They aim to take a whole systems approach to the challenge of transforming the UK’s energy sector, both affordably and securely, and is also helping the UK capture commercial opportunities and create new businesses across the energy sector.
With an emphasis on energy systems and efficiency central to the mission of the Energy Systems Catapult, delivering a data centre that reflected these qualities was essential.
Environments has used its skills in this area to ensure the data centre delivers a PUE of 1.17.
Chris Wellfair, projects director at Secure I.T.
Environments said, “Delivering a data centre quickly requires a great deal of skill, so as not to compromise success. We have built up a wealth of skills and a proprietary methodology in this area, which means we can deliver challenging projects at speed without compromising on attention to detail, energy efficiency, security or design quality.
This proven track record is one of the reasons that we were selected through the tender process to deliver this project for the Energy Systems Catapult.”
