Equinix’s fourth Sydney Colocation Data Centre is a Tier III rated and designed to ensure 99.999% reliability. The facility houses over 12,600 m2 of colocation space. The facility was designed and built to be able to modularly expand the key critical electrical and cooling infrastructure to support the colocation space.
ECS was engaged by Equinix to provide commissioning management services and integrated system testing on the original and second expansion stage. These works followed our successful involvement in expansion projects in Equinix’s SY3 facility.
Stage 1 involved the initial construction of the building and Fitout of 4 of the facilities Colocation spaces including inspection and verification of the facilities critical electrical, UPS, generator, cooling, fire, hydraulics, controls and security services. This stage was delivered at a fast past and required intensive attendance and coordination with the services contractors at the end of the project to verify all of the systems functioned, interfaced and performed in accordance with the project requirements.
Stage 2 involved the fit out of the 4 remaining colocation spaces plus expansion of the critical electrical, UPS, generator, cooling, fire, hydraulics, controls and security services.
ECS was contracted for this project as we had demonstrated our capability and expertise in the commissioning management of critical infrastructure, our attention to detail and our ability to monitor and work with their contractors and design team to deliver the needed outcomes.
