Project Overview

In 2019, Saradan were approached by a client in the Engineering & Technology field to design & build a Data Centre to house & support a 300kW Supercomputer. As a leader in their field, our client’s investment in the Supercomputer was to support a vital part of the business’ future success and in turn a Data Centre had to be built to reflect its importance.

 

With our in-house capabilities, Saradan were able to consult the client on the best way to support the 300kW IT load along with how to build a Data Centre within a parking lot on a pre-existing premise. This in turn developed into the design of a 34x Rack build with 10x In-Row DX cooling units providing precision cooling and the resulting build took place over a 24 week program including the overseeing of the supercomputer install.

Services included

  • A single storey Modular Building comprising of a Entrance Lobby, UPS room and Whitespace.
  • Full internal fit-out.
  • 34x Server Racks with PDU’s.
  • 10x In-row DX cooling units with cold aisle containment.
  • Comfort air-conditioning.
  • Fire detection & suppression system.
  • LV Switchgear.
  • Diesel generator installation.
  • Groundworks including concrete slab, trenching a new electrical supply, redirecting drainage and fencing.
  • Professional services.
  • Project Management.
  • CAD support.
  • Maintenance support.

 

”Saradan have been a pleasure to work with from project inception to planning and execution. Their professionalism and attention to detail took a lot of the pressure off an incredibly complex project and helped me to deliver it on time and on budget.

Many people have commented to me that the infrastructure they put in place has been some of the cleanest implementations they’ve come across, and I have to say I agree.

I am looking forward to working with Saradan again on all future projects of this nature”
