NDY was engaged for detailed concept design, design review, and performance acceptance testing on behalf of IBM.

After handover of the design concept for D&C developer tender and award, this included review of the D&C Developer’s detailed design for compliance with the concept design, development of the performance acceptance testing plan, and onsite commissioning management and witnessing of performance acceptance tests.

As the developer of all performance acceptance testing, NDY documented some 70 pages of detailed testing for handover. This was completed by the developer prior to a 4 week intensive period during which NDY represented the client in witnessing the outcomes of tests, and any re-testing required.

As part of the test regime, operational readiness testing was included, requiring the facility managers to recover from failure scenarios.

In delivering IBM’s project, our team was able to demonstrate NDY’s detailed understanding of all aspects of the construction and operation of a mission critical data centre.
