Client: Multiple Confidential Clients
We have extensive experience in the design of large data centres, having to date designed c.120,000 sq.m of data centre buildings.
What we do:
We act as lead designers of the fast track design of these highly managed built environments in Ireland and UK.
Our client-focussed design management skills, aligned with a pragmatic design approach, offers assured hands for clients involved in datacentre development. Risk is proactively managed by us as team leaders, to navigate with certainty through design, statutory approvals and procurement.
Managing the larger project team, nurturing team relationships and building a collaborative team environment are key to delivering these complex buildings and we have strength and experience in such team building.
BIM is extensively employed in a collaborative data environment (CDE) including federated design modelling and clash detection.
Specific Competence in the Design and Delivery of complex building:
- We are exceptional Team Players
- Extensive experience in large industrial, logistics and datacentre design.
- BIM competence PAS 1192
We are specifically experienced in the fast track design, project management and delivery of large scale owner occupier data centres for notable data space providers.
What we do:
As of 2017 we have delivered gross 103,000m2 of data centre over a variety of sites with approx. 65,000m2 of white space. Presently we have 23,300m2 of data centre at varying stages of design and production. Our delivery orientated project management skills aligned with a pragmatic and honest design approach offers assured hands for clients negotiating Ireland’s localised planning and development regulations. We proactively manage risk to navigate prudent routes for efficient building procurement.
We consider each project in a phased manner accounting for energy security, secure access to fibre networks along with scoping for EIS and contextual environmental considerations. Early integration with the client security design teams enhances project delivery to evolving client standards. We are at the forefront of BIM collaborative environment using federated models and clash detection though Navisworks. Project managing face to face meeting with the full construction team, nurturing relationships and building on our experience to streamline the delivery process. We are acutely aware of MEP design can evolve during large project role out. We constantly revaluate best fit solutions for client benefit and innovative design.
