Challenge 

NWAS released a tender in early 2018 and many companies and specialists applied to carry out the large amount of work tendered. Not only did NWAS require specialist consultancy but a company with great experience in designing, building and maintaining data centres. Who could also overcome a weight distribution problem as the Data Centre was to be located on the first floor. So, the INFINITI team not only had to overcome this challenge but also ensure that the Data Centre had a 2nd back up power supply in case the power in the area goes out. The NWAS required a company that could not only work under strict authorisation and privacy but delivered a team they could trust to get on with the work required and who would tick all the compliance boxes within the given time and budget.

Solution 

Shortly after the careful and thorough selection process to carry out the work, INFINITI who was selected went straight to work on the design of this new project. The work included; 

  • Design Build and expansion of a new data centre in new office space
