Watch an animated walkthrough of the 300,000 sq ft high tech datacentre project for HP Enterprise Solutions.
The project entailed the construction of a Tier 3 standard datacentre featuring four halls each comprising 12,000 sq ft with an average capacity of 2260 W/m2. The design incorporates the technique of “free air cooling” using the cold air blowing in from the nearby North Sea and as a result has achieved energy savings of approximately 40% when compared with other datacentres of a similar size and capacity.
Winner of DatacenterDynamics' The Green Data Center Award in 2008. In 2010 the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) awarded the project its ‘Design or Technical Innovation of the Year Award’ at the Low Carbon Performance Awards. In total 96% of site waste was diverted from landfill.
Throughout the project ISG organised a number of fundraising events for the new Great North Children’s Hospital and the charity ‘Zoe’s Place’, raising a total of £6,700 for these charities.
