The concept of Data Center

Based on results of requirements’ and needs’ analysis, we develop the concept of a new Data Center, including the following areas:

1. Functional solutions

  • Data Center type: new building, adaptation of the existing building, rent
  • Rooms types: server rooms, office space, administrative and technical rooms
  • Access control and Data Center protection
  • Development in the Data Center surroundings (e.g. roads)

2. Technological solutions

  • Electrical power supply installation
  • Air conditioning and ventilation
  • Fire protection
  • ICT infrastructure within the Data Center
  • ICT infrastructure outside the Data Center
  • Monitoring and Data Center protection

Based on the concept of functional solutions, we design conceptual project concerning the land and Data Center building. Project contains drawings images and block diagrams, allowing to assess the overall functionality of the proposed solution.

Implementation process

Modern and Efficient Data Center.

A well-prepared project documentation is a key component of planning Data Center. It is important to share expectations regarding the operation of the Data Center, problems that have to be solved after the implementation of new technologies and a detailed audit of a current technical condition (in the case of modernization of existing data center infrastructure).

Each project is prepared individually, according to the given specification and construction of an infrastructure’s requirements. We rely on 3 stages while building Data Center:

1. Investment preparation stage. It includes all necessary tasks in order to achieve the final result which is the Data Center:

  • Preparation of functional concept
  • Customer requirements analysis
  • Feasibility study and financial analysis
  • Preparation of a full implementation plan

2. Implementation stage. Implementation schedule, including areas:

  • Obtaining a building permission
  • Obtaining necessary administrative decisions
  • Investment Implementation
  • Environment’s and Systems’ tests
  • Post-completion documentation

3. Technical service and Data Center maintaining. Administration services and technical infrastructure management, including:

  • Evaluation of the deployment of hardware in the server room
  • Ensuring maintenance, inspections, controls and repair of equipment and technical infrastructure systems
  • Systems and devices audits
  • Systems and devices migrations
  • Equipment installations and relocations
  • Remote monitoring of the work of individual systems in the Data Center

Design consultancy

Good practices of Data Center design.

The main project element is to prepare the complete information before implementation. That is helpful in verifying the technical assumptions and define more precisely the project costs.

We support every stage of investment: preparation of required information, preparation of plans, estimates, strategies and technical support.

Helpful information in Data Center building:

  • Type and method of data storage
  • Purpose of investment (outsourcing, own needs, external services)
  • Available energy infrastructure type
  • Type and amount of security systems
  • Possibility of future expansion
  • Development plan and technical parameters of investment
  • The expected gains on investments (e.g. heat recovery, energy efficiency)
  • Investment execution time

Substitute Investor

Deciding to entrust the project to Substitute Investor, you are sure that people with appropriate competences will ensure a success of your investment. Good project management provides selection of the best project team members and supervisors, as well as increases the guarantee of schedules and deadlines, estimated budget and your quality requirements.

Our company, as a substitute investor, provides comprehensive project management services including:

  • Investment supervision over the project implementation, required by building law
  • Giving opinions about preparation and project implementation, agreements concluded with the project team and executor, work schedules
  • Project cost control
  • Technical and design consulting
  • Technical and formal analysis of the project
  • Cost estimates
