SYD056 Small Form Data Centre

Project Size
1,790m² over 2 storeys
$14.5 million

In a world increasingly driven by data, SYD056 Data Centre is testament to innovative design, stringent compliance, and a client-centric approach. It’s important to note that the size of a data centre doesn’t necessarily determine its effectiveness or efficiency. Factors such as design, location, connectivity, and services offered can also play a significant role in the data centre’s performance and value.

Objectives and Challenges

The primary objective was to create a state-of-the-art data centre that not only met the specific needs of the Principal, but also adhered to the highest standards of safety, accessibility, and compliance. The project faced several challenges, including:

- Integrating complex NCC requirements within a compact design.
- Ensuring DDA compliance for accessibility.
- Maintaining a rigorous schedule from commencement to completion

Solutions and Strategies

MBC Group adopted a comprehensive approach, focusing on PC, BCA, and DDA services, ensuring that every phase of the project was meticulously planned and executed:

- Development and Design Consultancy: the project kicked off with a detailed review of schematic designs to identify potential non-compliance areas early on. MBC Group's involvement in client design meetings and ongoing advice throughout the design phases ensured that the project remained aligned with the regulatory and client requirements.
- Statutory Approvals: Serving as both the Accredited and Principal Certifier, MBC Group navigated the project through critical regulatory milestones. This included a detailed assessment for Construction Certificate issuance and overseeing the compliance during the construction phase.
- Construction Oversight and Completion: through a series of critical and progress inspections, MBC Group ensured that the construction phase adhered to the approved plans and specifications. This rigorous oversight extended to accessibility, ensuring that the data centre met the DDA requirements, culminating in the issuance of an Occupation Certificate.

Impact and Outcomes

The team successfully addressed the challenges of integrating comprehensive compliance requirements within a compact and efficient DC design. The project exemplifies how challenges in compliance and design can be turned into opportunities for innovation. MBC Group's commitment to excellence and client satisfaction was evident in every phase of the project, from initial design consultations to the final handover.
