DCM IT Facility Solutions

DCM Installations specialise in IT Facilities of varying types and sizes, catering for IT loads up to 50kW.

Utilising our understanding of IT Facilities of nature DCM can provide a full Turnkey Solution for the Design, Construction and Maintenance of your Facility.

Initially we can run through the main Key Factors for the requirements of the IT Facility;

Pre-Construction

We can carry out many aspects of Pre-Construction works, from building applications, planning permissions, architects drawings, through to electrical, water, gas supply upgrades and building control project management.

From this we will work with you to produce a high level design indicating the possibilities of cabinet layouts within the potential areas.

A full and final design can then be produced on appointment, leading into a Design and Build contract for the works.

Builders Works

To house an IT Facility we can initially assist you to find a suitable location within your existing Facility and/or otherwise. We have experience of all outcomes for possible locations, from refurbishing an existing area, new build and modular rooms.

We can then progress from point of order the construction of the new area ready for your new IT Facility. This would include all associated works internally and externally for the new mechanical cooling equipment and generators for back-up power supply.

Electrical Installation

DCM Electrical Installations have a wealth of experience for this section of the works. We will look at everything from the initial requirements to provide an Electrical Installation that cover all associated works, covering elements of Tiers I, II & III as required.

Providing a resilient and reliable electrical distribution path is vital to achieving maximum uptime for any IT Facility. With this specialist systems, such as UPS and Generator installations, will be required. We will work with you to ensure you have a full understanding of the potential shortfalls, working up the right solution for the IT Facility.

We will also ensure that the IT Facility is in line with the latest Data Centre best practice with our knowledge of distribution path arrangements, earthing arrangements and cabinet layouts.
