Our technical capabilities in critical facilities for data centres, hosting, colocation and the like are first class.
Our experience extends to landmark projects around the world.
Services provided include building automation, DC power, electrical services, emergency power, fire protection, high voltage, mechanical services, public health, hydraulics, security, BIM and commissioning management.
Industry best practice standards are maintained throughout the life of a project. By delivering services that are adaptable, we give our clients the flexibility required to future proof their facilities.
We have delivered data centre projects for colocation providers, managed services providers, data centre owners and tenants. Through this diverse work we have gained an extensive knowledge of both the operational and business drivers for these different types of facilities. Based on this knowledge, we will be able to provide you with informed advice when developing data centre strategies.
We use the latest tools, including Building Information Modelling (BIM). The use of BIM as an operational tool for data centres is significant. NDY is at the forefront of this technology and currently have several engagements for BIM management on data centre projects.
We have a detailed knowledge of TIA-942 and Uptime Institute requirements and have five Uptime Institute Tier accredited designers. We were the designers for the first Uptime Institute Tier III Constructed certified facility in Australia and Tier III design certified facilities in London. Our team has an excellent knowledge of current data centre technologies and regularly carry out total cost of ownership assessment of key components of mission critical facilities, such as UPS and cooling technologies.
We have delivered many data centres across Europe and the Asia Pacific region. Through these projects we have developed a large team of senior staff with extensive data centre experience. We actively move staff between locations and operate as one company, actively sharing information and knowledge across the group. Our senior staff are regular presenters at international conferences.
Our operational knowledge coupled with significant on site experience, enables our team to identify operational risks and transition management strategies. In delivering existing data centre projects, we work closely with commissioning managers to provide solutions that can be successfully commissioned in the existing operational environment.
Existing operational data centres offer unique challenges compared to new build facilities. In planning a data centre upgrade, consideration must be given to the nature of the facility, operational constraints and future requirements. At NDY, we understand the risks that working in an operational environment bring. Our designs rely on this understanding of operational facilities in our development of new build data centres as well as existing facilities.
We also understand the importance of sustainable data centre design. NDY can help clients reduce energy consumption without threatening performance. In addition to energy efficient outcomes, water minimisation and rainwater harvesting are key opportunities (given data centres typically have large roofs and hence, large rainwater collection areas).
The location of a data centre also offers opportunities to reduce its carbon footprint whether it is adaptive re-use of existing buildings; access to green power such as hydroelectric; proximity to power sources to reduce transmission losses; or favourable environments to maximise the use of free cooling.
Our understanding of the data centre market and latest technologies allows us to deliver flexible solutions that meet our clients’ current and future needs, built on experience in a wide range of mission critical project roles including a detailed insight into potential tenant requirements.
NDY understands call centres and has the experience needed to deliver world class solutions.
Through our involvement with Optus, Telstra and other major companies, NDY has amassed considerable experience in call centre design. We have a thorough understanding of how occupant density demands impact air conditioning, power distribution and lighting.
Our experience extends from the design and documentation phase through to construction.
We can also assist clients with benchmarking to help determine the feasibility of sites.
Technical excellence underpins our offering in the mobile network sector. We have detailed experience and a thorough understanding of the latest developments.
Our experience across voice communications; local area and wide area networks; wireless area networks; and satellite and radio communications is extensive. It helps ensure that we deliver high performance, innovation, strong client relationships and successful project outcomes.
NDY’s specialists have an in-depth understanding of the latest technological breakthroughs.
They provide consulting and engineering design services for mobile networks by utilising industry best practices.
