Project Description

Brief Description

Kirby provide turnkey Principal Contractor services and conventional contracting to this multi-national IT organisation across their UK and Ireland facilities. Projects were undertaken across the data centre environment and office/customer support facilities.

This particular upgrade project involved an overall increase in IT capacity from 4.5MWe to 6MWe with increased resilience. As Principal Contractor, Kirby managed the associated mechanical and electrical works including equipment installation. Equipment included 3 x 2MVA generators, transformers, HV/LV switchgear, UPS systems, chiller plant and split Dx cooling system replacement.

A major element of work related to the upgrade to building fabric, with Kirby responsible for the construction of a new power house building, chiller compound and repair to the building’s roof, curtain walling and interior floor tile replacement.

Turnkey Capability

Kirby was fully responsible for overall project management including design validation, engineering, procurement, construction and final integrated systems testing.

Supporting Business Continuity

The site itself remained fully operational throughout the build period with Kirby liaising closely with client personnel to ensure maintenance of site operations at all times. We recognise the sensitive nature of mission critical operations and the absolute need to maintain business continuity. We meticulously plan all our site activities to deliver reliable installation services to our data centre clients.
