  • Have You Completed a Mission Critical Facility Upgrade Which Missed Key Deliverables?
  • Did the Project’s Actual Costs Rise Significantly Above the Project Budget?
  • Are You Concerned About Power & Cooling Due to the Addition of High Density IT Components?
  • Are You Unsure How Best to Build a Highly Available Facility?

Successful computer room design entails a thorough understanding of both facility and IT design requirements. PTS leverages its integrated IT and facility planning and engineering expertise and experience to create a facility that supports the IT load while being energy efficient and highly maintainable.

PTS’ programs for mission critical facility development begin by identifying the key design criteria (KDCs) for the two (2) main areas of the project focus within the facility: the Technology Infrastructure (IT) and the Support Infrastructure (the Facility). The following table provides a look at how PTS maps the KDCs against availability requirements, power & cooling density, and overall business objectives. It is through a thorough understanding of the project’s KDCs that allow PTS to ultimately provide an effective, always available computer or server room facility within a client budget window.

Computer Room Design Planning and Feasibility

PTS’ approach begins with a thorough planning & feasibility phase prior to implementation of architectural and engineering services. This approach leverages the first four phases of the PTS data center project process for successful planning leading into cohesive design services which support client requirements.

The PTS capabilities provided for a Computer Room Design project include Planning & Feasibility and Design & Engineering as follows:

  • Key Design Criteria (KDC) Development
    Establish Load, Availability, and Deployment Density Design Criteria
  • Site Surveys
    Survey the Existing Conditions to Establish Facility Constraints
  • Assessment Services
    Establish Recommendations for Upgrade and/or Improvement
  • Conceptual Design with CFD Modeling
    Establish a Visual Representation of the Recommendations and Verify Design Considerations using CFD Models
  • Project Cost Estimating
    Establish a Project Cost Estimate Including All Hardware, Labor, and Professional Services
  • Preliminary Master Project Schedule Development
    Establish a Preliminary Schedule to Understand the Project Timeline
  • Architectural & Engineering Design
    Plan and Engineer Room, Floor, Physical Security, and Other Intrinsic Elements Using Design Approaches Necessary for Mission Critical Facilities

Ultimately, time spent understanding how load, availability, and density affect the project cost will save you both time and money at the end. Changes to the scope midway through the construction phase cause most project cost overruns. PTS’ KDC Development Service will help you avoid this pitfall by establishing project feasibility via a high level cost analysis that leads to an early alignment of scope, schedule, and budget.

After developing a set of program requirements, PTS performs site surveys of an existing and/or new site (if applicable). This approach allows PTS to create a baseline of the existing conditions to serve as a basis for determining a set of program requirements and, ultimately, creating a conceptual design and project budget.

After completing the first two steps in terms of future needs and current situation, PTS provides an assessment which can be used to improve an existing facility and meet the KDCs. Alternatively, PTS moves to conceptual development of the computer or server room including modeling power, cooling, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and special modeling.

After review and approval by the client PTS is able to move forward with a variety of engineering services to deliver a computer room to meet your requirements.
