ARCHITECTURAL MODELLING/BIM/VDC SERVICES

  • Perform detailed architectural modelling of all racks, ceiling systems, containment systems and other interior caging/partitions.   
  • 3D scanning of the existing white space and support areas 
  • 4D and 5D BIM services to simulate construction sequencing, identify high risk activities and to provide bills of quantities.

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING 

  • Coordinate electrical point-of-connection at landlord power distribution units (PDUs) and main data hall ground bars
  • Design client’s data hall electrical distribution including feeders and/or overhead busway (or similar), tap boxes and associated electrical distribution.
  • Perform arc flash and coordination studies to coordinate with base building distribution
  • Specify and design an electrical metering system
  • Create electrical system labelling and documentation used for operations
  • Design data hall grounding scheme and details.
  • Modify/Design data hall lighting based on IES recommendations
  • Coordinate design and routing of electrical services with existing base building and tenant systems and structures

MECHANICAL / PLUMBING / SPRINKLER ENGINEERING 

  • Validate building mechanical systems support client’s environmental requirements
  • Perform CFD Analysis based on actual cabinet layout and electrical loading
  • Design supplementary cooling and/or airflow management systems as required
  • Modify/Design fire protection systems within the data hall as required
  • Design environmental monitoring systems for ongoing tracking, trending and reporting of temperature and relative humidity (and dewpoint)

STRUCTURED CABLING DESIGN 

  • Design communication pathways and spaces including cable tray, conduit, and support rooms.
  • Develop details of fiber, copper distribution, patch panels and patch systems
  • Layout racks and network switches
  • Create labeling of structured cable and patch cabling systems
  • Coordinate with landlord provided data hall systems
  • Coordinate with landlord provided data hall systems and carrier POP’s

OTHER SYSTEMS 

  • Design/co-ordination of air containment, environmental monitoring, lighting systems, exit signs, fire alarm, fire protection and security systems
  • DCIM (see Section 5 below for additional details)
  • Design of all Architectural/Structural systems

STAMPING / CERTIFICATION 

Ehvert will coordinate the stamping of documents and submissions for the building permit.
