The rapid increase in demand for data centres is fuelled by growing volumes of information to process and store. Data Centres are now viewed as a critical component in business growth rather than a cost and drain on resources.
Many businesses don't have the manpower, or the expertise to be able to effectively administer a construction project; especially one as complex and crucial as a Data Centre. Mascot will effectively operate as an employee of your company, acting on your behalf; managing the details so that your core business activities are not affected. At Mascot we understand the intricacies of planning and delivering Data Centre facilities and how sensitive the market is to meeting the project deliverables and the associated risks of falling short on time and budget.
Our approach to every appointment starts with a team effort of defining and understanding the project requirements and identifying the business objectives. We then establish the design criteria and create preliminary designs and specifications which will inform the data centre cost plan. From this point the initial specifications and designs are developed based on the project scope, determined system requirements and available budget, both from a time and cost perspective. A preliminary master programme is established to optimise the delivery time and ensure alignment with the project specification.
Managing the construction phase of a Data Centre project is a complex role as there are a huge number of details that must be given proper attention if the project is going to be successfully completed on-time and on-budget. The procurement, delivery, installation and commissioning of client supply items will need to be carefully planned and integrated into the main contractor’s programme so that there are no detrimental effects on the main contractors programme.
Our extensive knowledge of data centre construction and construction practices ensure the projects are completed within budget, on programme and to a very high quality.
