IDS was appointed to provide the full technical design from concept stage, for a new build data centre campus in Hemel Hempstead. The two-storey data centre, when complete is expected to deliver 6 x 4 Mw data suites totalling 24Mw of IT load.

The initial phase one design comprised 6 new technology "white" spaces in a single building over two floors, with the addition of additional external support infrastructure buildings serving both the production and facility infrastructure. 

The design included the following primary system elements

  • Production infrastructure design
  • Facility infrastructure design
  • Internal containment systems 
  • External telecom ducts and chamber systems
  • Structured cabling systems
  • External CCTV
  • Wi-Fi
  • EPMS
  • BAS
  • RoIP
  • Voice
  • AV
  • ACS
  • CCTV

The design was completed using Revit to include all telecom elements in a combined AE team coordinated 3D model. 

IDS will undertake the construction administration works following the design phases, working alongside the appointed General Contractor and clients project team.

The project is due for completion in 2021.
