Data Centre Standards

There are a large number of data centre standards that are both directly and exclusively written for data centres or have elements that apply to data centres within them. This standards landscape can be confusing and this confusion is increased by some standards broadly contradicting each other, while others are open to interpretation.

Why do I need a Standards?

Understanding what data centre standards are will help you achieve your specific project goals and objectives is key, it will also ensure that your data centre is standards compliance.


Your design will be given to our Standards Compliance Team. This team is made up of Design Engineers who will go through the drawings and specification documentation to confirm they comply with the required standards.


You will receive a report covering any non-compliance aspects of your design. Depending on the scope of the brief this may also be accompanied with an improvement or amendment notice. This document describes what changes need to be made to bring the design in line with the specified standard. Time can also be made available for you to discuss the document with one of our Design Consultants or Engineers.
