Data Center Conceptual Design

Considering building or renovating a data center? If so, we can help you determine the size, cost, power density, reliability, growth strategy, and overall layouts of the facility.

What types of engineering systems and how reliable?

How much will it cost?

How much land or can it fit into an existing building?

Single or multiple floors?

What is the PUE expectation and how much will it cost to operate?

Our focus is to answer the high level questions and provide the information you and your management needs to justify and attain the approvals to construct the data center.

Through a series of three meetings we conduct the programming and information gathering necessary to develop the concept designs and budget pricing. Working closely with your project team we will meet with and interview the appropriate stakeholders (facility, real estate and IT staff) to understand and incorporate their requirements.

A 4th meeting is held where we present our work to your staff. We can also assist and present to your executives or board of directors as necessary to help explain the project and scope.
