RED is delighted to have been appointed as Lead Consultant by Pacnet, a leading telecommunications service provider, for its data centre project in Singapore. The data centre is strategically located in the Paya Lebar area, an eight-storey, 157,000 sq ft standalone facility which aims to meet Tier III data center standards. The new-build facility will be compliant with standards of the BCA Green Mark certification, Singapore’s equivalent of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Designed to support customer requirements for high-power density needs through the supply of 12 MVA utility connections (upgradable to 15MVA), the site is capable of supporting 1,500 high power density racks with an initial IT load of 6 Megawatts.
RED’s first project in Singapore will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2013
