RED provided strategy, detailed design and supervision for this new stand-alone primary data centre facility for a banking sector client in Istanbul. With 1,000m2 of technical white space at 2kW/m2, the facility incorporates Turkey’s first iMAFC cooling solution to achieve a target PUE of less than 1.30. 500kW of low grade waste heat will be exported to adjoining new Bank campus development.
The facility is to a world-class standard and sets a new precedent in data centre design for Turkey. The MEP infrastructure has achieved Uptime Institute Tier III design and certification standard, and LEED Gold, and is the first Uptime certified facility in Turkey.
RED has taken the project from initial concept design through full detailed design and into construction with the facility being ready for IT fit out after IST during Q1-2015.
Uptime design and facility certification along with LEED certification is within the RED scope.
