Data Centre Design Reviews

If your facility has been designed by an architect or engineer without in-depth knowledge in data centre design, a design review by an industry specific specialist is essential.

Methodology

Future-tech have the capabilities to review whole data centre designs or individual elements. The process begins with the establishment of a clear review brief and following this, a team of Design Engineers and Consultants will be assigned to the project. In the initial stage, the team will examine the various elements of the design individually to identify any areas that will not meet or comply with the client’s brief, a meeting is arranged to go through these which provides robust mechanism for identifying shortfalls or potential issues. Depending on the nature of the project, further meetings will be arranged throughout the process.

Data Centre Peer reviews can happen at any stage of your design’s development. Engaging early will ensure your design team is fully prepared, have their requirements clearly identified and understand the projects drivers and constraints.

Output

Once any issues have been identified and agreement has been reached by the Design Team, the Lead Design Consultant will collate all the findings into a concise report to be issued to the client. A further meeting can be arranged should further clarification be required.
