Phase 2 – Data Centre
ABEC has been appointed by Mercury Engineering to design and install the building management system for Phase 2 of Equinix Zurich ZH5 for Equinix.
Following the successful completion of Phase 1 of Equinix Zurich ZH5, ABEC were appointed to deliver the second stage of this data centre.
The programme period is 5 months to not only design and install the building management system for the new 10,000 square feet of white space, but also to integrate seamlessly with no down time due to Phase 1 already live and functioning, the second phase into the phase 1 works, utilising the same MEP plant that served Phase 1. This will need to be planned meticulously due to the critical nature of this, to ensure the smooth transition of the existing plant to server Phase 2, with no risk to the resilience of the plant during this time.
The works include 10,000 square feet of white space, along with additional cooling plant and upgrades to the existing MEP plant to serve the new white space.
All works were due to be completed within a 5 month period starting in January 2017.
