As part of a ‘best of breed’ Design Team, PTS was tasked with representing IT throughout all phases of HSBC’s new one million sq.ft. HQ project. The scope of works included the design of all computer rooms and the procurement and implementation of the Structured Cabling System. The location of the main Datacentre was of particular concern in the wake of the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

Highlights


  • Early engagement in five-year assignment
  • Fully integrated IT infrastructure with building services
  • Fire-suppression within the new Data Centre location
  • Sectionalised Data Centre room fitted with own SCS sub-system
  • Extensive management structure to ensure equipment is regularly tested

“An extensive management structure was also established to ensure that equipment, such as generators and UPS, could be tested on a regular basis without risking or requiring a shutdown of the Datacentre.”

Summary


The building incorporated the latest environmentally friendly technology, thus setting a new standard for building construction.
