data centre design & Construction Project
INFINITI IT LIMITED a data centre consultancy and construction specialist has been awarded a "Fast Track" data centre design & build contract for a large global finance company with UK headquarters located in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Over the next 6 weeks we will be providing you with a detailed insight that covers the implementation of a Micro data centre facility. This Blog will cover all installation works right through to final commissioning, witness testing, project completion and handover to our client all within an aggressive 6 week programme.
The design ethos of the data centre facility is scalable and offers our client a complete flexibility with future expansion and will accommodate 100% growth if required, but still ensuring losses are kept to a minimum and that the data centre is as efficient as possible even at lower initial day loads.
Performance Specification Overview
- Modular Data Centre Construction with 1 hour fire rated composite panels
- Heavy duty raised access flooring system
- Modular 80kW N+1 APC Symmetra UPS with approx. 9 minutes autonomy

This week the main focus was to install or first fix the electrical containment that will be situated within the heavy duty raised access flooring which will be to utilised as a cold air distribution plenum as part of the cooling design.
Although only 8# 45U cabinets will be deployed initially, we opted to install the additional supplies as part of the main contract to mitigate potential risk to services and possible down time in the future as and when the extra cabinets are required. This design approach is favoured when building scalable data centres.
Cleaners sockets and fused spurs required to ventilation, security and other ancillary systems are installed fed from the Sub LV or non-ups backed electrical switch gear.
