NEXTDC P1 Perth Data Centre

The project involved the fit-out of a purpose built Data Centre to support NEXTDC Information and Communication technology services. The fit-out requirements mandated that the facility be operational 365 days a year – 24 hours a day – and capable of meeting the requirements of a Tier 3 facility as defined in the ANSI/EIA/TIA-942 standard. The fit-out comprised all construction and services including, electrical, mechanical, firefighting and hydraulics. The complex also included offices, meeting rooms, staging rooms and a chill out room.
