Surveys and design for resilient & modular data centres

Data Centre Surveys And Building Design For New Builds And Retrofits

We support data centre clients and contractors, with an array of multi-disciplinary survey and design services to create and upgrade/enhance mission-critical data centres – from small high-density server rooms to large commercial cloud builds, new builds, retrofits and capacity enhancement schemes.

Our engineers are trained to the very latest design standards and building regulations, with knowledge and flexible to adapt to international codes, to ensure that even the most complex data-driven data centre requirements are achieved, and have experience in working on surveys and design for some of the most intricate global data centre facilities in the UK and across Europe.

Data Centre Expertise And Services

We provide quality-driven, accurate surveying and design services to ensure the very best outcome for data centre projects and data centre resilience across Tiers 1 to 4.

From the outset of new data centre enhancement projects, we survey existing buildings and associated building services and conduct soil resistivity testing and earthing design. We evaluate power, air ventilation, lighting and security requirements to ensure the optimum data centre environment and prevent possible data centre downtime.

Where there are ever-increasing demands on servers, electricity and rack cooling requirements, we can assess the live environment for resilience and reliability with energy and airflow measurements and make recommendations for power, lighting and cooling improvements.
