Server Room Electrical Works

As part of our services we provide a complete review of server room electrical requirements for our clients. This can range from the simple installations of local sockets to a complete server room electrical design following our own data centre electrical design guide.

Datacentre Electrical Contractors

As part of our services we provide a complete electrical contracting service for our clients. This can range from the simple installations of local sockets to a complete rewire from a local building incomer. Our team of certified electrical contractors can work on commercial, industrial, renewable and even domestic-sized installations. Working with our own electrical contractors means that we can provide a complete ‘turn-key’ installation package including commissioning. Our electrical works package can consist of:

  • Building works as required to prepare a building or room for a fit-out and/or new system installation
  • Electrical works site survey to review existing electrical infrastructure and provide a fully-costed quotation
  • Electrical installation of LV switchgear, single and three phase cabling (AC/DC), generator and UPS system interfaces, network interfaces, UPS bypasses, AC and DC isolators
  • Mechanical installation of base plates and plinths, fixings, footings, pipe works, fuel tanks and air conditioner ducting
  • Battery builds into cabinets, racks or on stands (cladded or uncladded) with associated DC cabling, battery monitoring, auxiliary chargers and circuit-breaker isolation
  • Load bank testing using portable AC and/or DC load banks
  • Commissioning by factory trained and certified engineers to the manufacturers instructions
  • Remote monitoring and software configuration
  • Documentation completion including F-GAS regulations for air conditioners
  • Training and system handover
  • Documentation including O&M manuals, schematics, third-party applications and certificate issue

All works are costed for normal working hours or by arrangement outside normal working hours or weekends. Often preparatory works are completed during the working day before an out-of-hours shutdown and final electrical connection. We then complete the commissioning process and handover.

Handover and Warranty

Following completion the system(s) installed are then covered by the appropriate manufacturer’s warranty supported by Server Room Environments. Warranty periods can run from 1 to 7 years depending upon the equipment brand installed and extended warranties are always available. For added peace of mind, we always recommend a maintenance contract to provide the required emergency response level and at least one preventative maintenance visit per year.

Onsite Power Generation

With many clients in the UK concerned about the state of the National Grid and its reserve capacity, Server Room Environments can supply a range of local power generation and energy storage systems to allow site to be grid independent. Power generation and storage systems include:

  • Renewable power generation from Solar PV and wind turbines
  • Liquid gas and diesel standby power generation
  • Lithium-ion and lead acid battery energy storage systems
  • Virtual power plants
