Working with Norland Managed Services, we project managed the dilapidation of their client’s old data centre suite. This was a short four week project managing nine engineers on both day and night shifts.
The data centre suite was part of a busy collocation facility, which meant access routes to remove large pieces of equipment were restricted to after core hours. The day shifts were therefore used to dismantle the cabinets, metalwork and cabling, and the night shifts were used to remove the dismantled metalwork and cables from the suite, and to clean up the area, so as not to impact other users of the building.
A cable inventory was undertaken for all circuits entering the suite, to ensure any cables removed did not belong to any systems running through the suite, for example the landlords BMS systems etc. The project was a great success, and was brought in on time and within budget.
