We have just completed a design project for the development of a new colocation facility for Space Data Centers in Nottingham. The IT facility, which will deliver up to 50 racks, will accommodate a combination of customers’ colocation equipment and managed IT services. It is designed to deliver capacity within the local area to both public and private organisations looking for professional and high performance facilities.
The design incorporates highly efficient modular M&E solutions to ensure the facility can scale with no disruption as the load increases, and a resilient infrastructure for concurrent maintainability with modular components to improve resilience. The facility was designed to Tier III specifications, with 2N electrical distribution and concurrently maintainable N+1 cooling and power infrastructure.
As lead design consultant Keysource also fulfilled the role of Principal Designer in line with CDM 2015 regulations. We worked closely with Space Data Centers to develop the brief and design and delivered all aspects of the layout and mechanical and electrical systems. We also provided strategic consultancy and business planning support, and will be supporting Space Data Centres through the construction phase and into operation.
Gary Digva, Director of Space Data Centres said:
Our facility will be a big step forward in the area for outsourced data centre services and it is vital that the design meets all aspects of best practice, resilience and efficiency so we can demonstrate our commitment to the highest levels of service. Keysource is the perfect partner for us on this project as the company has a wealth of experience and its in-house design and engineering teams can meet our exact requirements in a timely and flexible way.
