Critical Facilities Management
Managing daily data centre infrastructure operational challenges associated with complex technology and multi-vendor relationships can be frustrating and time-consuming, depriving you of precious time to focus on what is important. Clients are challenged with maintaining a full range of data centre infrastructure while addressing budget pressures, critical project deadlines, and shortage of skilled resources. Opting to outsource the facilities management of your entire data centre environment, or parts thereof to a trusted service provider is a smart alternative.
Workspace Technology’s core business is the Design, Build & Management of mission critical and data centre environments. With an extensive level of in-house expertise we are best positioned to provide ongoing site facilities management of your data centre.
Workspace Technology provides a single-source partnership approach maximising reliability and availability of data centre assets.
Our Mission Critical Facilities Management Team will deliver:
- Implementation of an effective Maintenance Programme
- Maintain uptime through Callout & Planned Preventative Servicing
- Optimisation of infrastructure to help improve energy efficiency of data centre assets
- Identify and release stranded capacity
- Provide ongoing moves, adds and changes
- Develop and grow data centre Infrastructure
Planned preventive service activities tend to be targeted on core plant such as chillers or generator systems. Specialist data centre Facilities Engineers can complement PPM servicing by providing regular site visits to perform general infrastructure inspection, adjustments, lubrication and periodic testing. Depending on the nature of the data centre the recommended attendance frequency may range from a daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly.
Typical Onsite Facilities Engineers' activities will incorporate inspections, lubrication and adjustments of items such as Fresh Air Ventilation systems, Fire Dampers / PRD Damper Systems, Aisle Containment / Access Doors & Emergency Lighting and Fittings.
Our approach to the delivery of a whole life service is to manage mission critical infrastructure assets in a way that provides maximum value and cost effectiveness for the lifetime of the data centre facility. This requires decisions across the design, construction, operation and maintenance and use of the data centre and asset systems that fully considers potential future requirements and circumstances, as well as whole life cost implications and not just the immediate condition needs and budget constraints.
