Data centre commissioning and validation services. We provide the foremost, comprehensive and detailed services when it comes to Data Centre commissioning. This is always carried out from initial design reviews, to factory acceptance testing all the way to final Integrated System testing and handover
Factory Acceptance Testing
The Factory Acceptance testing is considered as one of the most important parts of any data centre commissioning. During these tests, defects and functional sequence flaws can be identified early enough not have an impact on construction programmes.
Integrated System Testing
The integrated System Test also knows as the ‘IST’ is the milestone for handing over any DC. We will successfully provide documentation, detail all testing and run the tests. The ‘IST’ will always provide our clients with the confidence that their facility is ready.
Design Review Stage
Reviewing initial systems design at an early stage, enables us to incorporate critical commissioning related changes without having an impact on programme change or cost. We utilise the experience we have drawn from the many projects we have undertaken.
During construction we undertake detailed site inspections to ensure that the installed services can be commissioned and maintained from an operational point of view. We work alongside the contractors to ensure a seamless process.
Commissioning and Hand Over
At commissioning stages we develop a series of performance tests inline with the design intent to carry out the final proving of each system. Once all systems have been proven, the control systems (BMS) undergo stringent testing for final handover.
Critical Environmental Validation
Mission Critical facilities require additional testing for proving the environmental systems. We utilise heat load testing to ensure we have tested the installed and commissioned equipment to its capacity. After all, once a system is installed it may behave differently to that at a factory acceptance test.
Specialist witnessing and Handover
Our role will always include specialist witnessing of critical systems for handover. System proving tests are developed ‘out of the norm’ to validate the design intent before client Handover. Handover is met with all system correctly commissioned and all supporting documentation in place.
System sign off with zero defects
An increasing number of projects get handed over where underlining defects are not identified correctly. We can and will successfully use our tools and knowledge, to identify, close out with other teams for a zero defect system handover
