DATA CENTERS

The Merging of Smart City Technology and Award-Winning Infrastructure

Considering That Data is Growing More Than 65% Annually

IS IT POSSIBLE TO BUILD A FUTURE READY DATA CENTER TODAY?

Data centers are mission critical facilities that require the deepest knowledge in multiple areas of expertise. They are no longer massive, bunker-type buildings but, instead, have evolved into flexible, energy efficient and modular facilities. But this is something that comes very naturally to ICS because the business of data centers has been a core capability of ours since our inception. In collaboration with our trusted global partners, we deliver edge-to-edge data centers that combine our capabilities as an IT Leader with many years of experience in light and heavy construction. As a result, ICS Data Centers are optimized in their efficiency and feature state-of-art, smart solutions designed and built to accommodate rapidly changing technologies, equipment and regulations.

IN FOCUS
  • Explosive growth of data and fast networks
  • Underutilized capabilities of artificial intelligence

ENGINEERING, CONSTRUCTION AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT

We Strive For a Deep Understanding of Our Client's Needs and Requirements

We apply multi-stage reviews, tests and validations to guarantee compliance ensuring the highest standards of quality, Uptime’s TIER rating requirements, and other performance metrics.

Our design team works closely with the customer, SMEs and construction teams through every step, to ensure that all actionable expectations are attained. 

ICS uses a Fast-Track Data Center Design-Build Methodology that reduces the timeline by over 20%. We do not skip the process but rather compress a given project’s schedule by managing design and construction phases simultaneously, to the extent that is feasible.

DATA CENTER SOLUTIONS

Our Capabilities Include Planning, Designing, Building & Commissioning

ICS offers edge-to-edge services and customized solutions. A partial list of capabilities include:

  • Design and execution of Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) systems including uninterruptible power supply (UPS), battery back-up systems, and diesel generator sets.
  • Data Center Infrastructure Management with Building Management System (BMS) and Integrated Intelligent Control Systems (I2CS).
  • Design and execution of Structured Data Cabling that make troubleshooting and expansion smooth; usage of Cable Management Systems (CMS).
  • Design and commissioning of Data Networks using fabric or hybrid architectures integrated with Storage Area Network (SAN), Clustered Computer Servers, associated peripherals, and control devices.
  • Design and commissioning of Storage Area Network expanding to 9-12 petabytes of data.
  • Establishing a Clock Management System adjusting fraction-of-a-millisecond accuracy prior to the installation of computers and SAN systems. This allows digital systems to synchronize their processes and exchange data smoothly.
  • Expertise in Security Access Control System (SACS), including established network security, applications, and physical access control integrated with SACS.
  • Design and commissioning Fire Suppression and Protection systems integrated with BMS and I2CS.
  • Design and commissioning of Audio Video systems and VoIP-based telephones systems.
  • Integration of business applications with Database Management Systems hosted under virtualized, private, or hybrid cloud infrastructure, ensuring optimal Return on Investment (ROI) for our customers.

ICS QUALITY AT GLANCE

Our Certifications and Memberships

DCS Quality Management

Various types of testing throughout the Data Center build lifecycle provides additional quality compliance. For critical systems, Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) will be performed during procurement. During installation of an ICT subsystem, a combination of Function Validation Testing (FVT), Integration Testing (INTEG), Pre-Release Validation Testing (RVT), and Site Acceptance Testing (SAT) will be performed, and identified defects will be corrected. Test results from Performance Testing (PERT), Capacity Testing (CAPT), and Final Acceptance Testing (FA) will be analyzed to review the system’s performance, contingent upon which ICT subsystem will be accepted. 

risk mitigation

Risk is continually mitigated throughout the execution of project work. Vetting trade contractors’ qualifications and capabilities, periodic audits on test procedures, calibration of measuring instruments, and compliance with safety procedures are a few such examples of the rigorous processes we employ. We further mitigate project risks by working only with subcontractors who are familiar with local regulations, assist with Quality Assurance, and adhere to established safety standards. Additionally, ICS reduces both project delays and unnecessary errors by auditing our processes and periodically checking the project’s status against its milestone metrics.
