New bank HQ Tier III Data Centre
- Location | Riyadh
- Size | 120 racks
- Power | 600kW
Continuing the long relationship with this global bank, Sudlows DMCC was requested to design a new data centre within its headquarters in Riyadh to allow migration from their old facility. The new data centre had to be designed to fit within the buildings structural frame constraints and on a single floor only.
The building’s structural design required the new data centre to be installed around columns and shear walls on the proposed data centre level. The layout and plant rooms had to fit and make best use of the space whilst providing the required number of racks and testing facilities for the bank as well as diverse rooms for the electrical distribution systems. An essential requirement of the project was to meet Uptime Tier III.
