Meeting high data center standards can be a challenge for any organization. Here at IDCS we have extensive experience in providing specification documentation to support the high standards required of your data center, server and computer room design, as well as for build or refurbishment projects.

Our data center standards service supports you throughout tender and post tender shortlisting selections, and presentations of proposals and pre-award negotiations, ensuring all aspects of the required data center standards and specifications have been met fully.

Following successful award, we can also assist with construction management and contract administration throughout the duration of works, up to final witness testing programs and project handover, ensuring that all data center standards are adhered to.
