The project

Spanning 22,000 sq ft, the datacentre features a total capacity of 315 IT racks with three per rack. Commtech Asia undertook a critical role to oversee and execute the commissioning management for all of the mission-critical systems, ensuring that they were properly installed and that the systems were fully integrated.

Commtech Asia provided testing and commissioning management services of a wide range of mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, building management systems, extra-low voltage (ELV), security and fire services systems for both the existing and new plants on various levels and in common areas of the building.

To minimise negative impact on the operations of its existing tenants, Commtech Asia engaged and consulted the existing tenants of the datacentre at an early stage, ensuring that they understood the possible impact and introduced preventive and responsive measures during the T&C period.

Apart from this, Commtech Asia also carried out environmental commissioning management of the datacentre project in line with LEED requirements. The datacentre successfully achieved LEED Gold rating by U.S. Green Building Council.

The project was completed in two phases within a period of eleven months.
