Digital Realty is one of the largest providers of colocation Data Centres in the world covering 4 Continents, 14 Countries and 156 Data Centres. They provide data centre strategies that are designed to help customers reach their business goals.
IFS were chosen as the preferred contractor for the installation of LED external light systems at a location in southern England.
IFS undertook a successful external lighting project for Digital Realty. The project consisted of the specification and installation of replacement LED external flood lighting. Calculations for the ROI from converting to an LED lighting system were undertaken and with the specification of the latest LED technology lighting units the client exceeded their original return expectation on the investment.
The project required working within a high security environment.
IFS engineers complied with strict site working regulations and management requirements regarding access, taskdelivery and safe working solutions.
The installation of the new LED lighting units required our engineers to carry out the work at height. MEWP’s were employed as the safest and fastest way to deliver the project.
Full adherence to Health & Safety procedures and strict interpretation of RAM’s produced an accident free contract.
Communications were key to the success to the project and IFS staff achieved maximum visibility to the centre management team.
The success of these works led to IFS undertaking four further M&E, and fabric related contracts for Digital Realty.
315 man hours were worked without any incidents or near misses.
