RED was appointed as Lead Designers on behalf of the client to help with the following duties.
The scope of work involved full MEP design activities across the campus, including leading design team meetings and interfacing with clients and utility companies. The BIM Lead was responsible for collating discipline information into a federated model. Additionally, the team ensured equipment proposed by OFCI vendors met project requirements, captured power and utility requirements, and ensured utility connections complied with site-specific conditions. Certification information was compiled for BREEAM assessment, and detailed calculations and reports were provided to justify the targeted PUE for the campus. CFD studies simulated data center operation under various weather conditions and full load scenarios. The team also assisted the client with the tendering process, provided design updates to the project QS, and offered professional consultancy on risk management, value engineering, and project management throughout the project.

The FF5 project is a significant milestone for the client, being the largest Data Centre facility under construction in Europe. It involves the construction and technical fit-out of two buildings with a total IT capacity of 54MW in Frankfurt. The project will be BREEAM certified with a Very Good rating. Each building will have three floors, with a 9,000 sqm IT room on each floor. The complex will also include an ancillary office building and a gantry building for critical electrical equipment installation. Outdoor areas with green spaces and an 80-space car park are also planned.
The project involved collaboration between multiple offices, including Dublin, Guildford, Germany, and Manilla. This approach facilitated the sharing of lessons learned for improved efficiency in future phases and projects.
RED met all submission dates aligned with the client's tendering milestones, ensuring timely information sharing and avoiding delays in the master programme.
