New data centre project completed at Hammersmith Hospital

Communications and server room completed on time and within budget

Secure I.T. Environments has announced the completion of a new data centre project at Hammersmith Hospital, part of the Imperial College Healthcare Trust.

The company worked closely with the hospital to help identify the right location for the new server and communications room, deciding on a ground-floor location that offered good access, as well as connectivity for the services needed.

The chosen room was fully stripped back and built to a design that includes cabinets, UPS, energy-efficient air conditioning systems in N+1 configuration, intelligent power distribution units, and an environmental monitoring system.

Secure I.T. Environments also provided the electrical infrastructure and structured cabling services for the project, as well as a room deep clean upon completion.

The new room was completed on time and within budget and forms part of the trust’s wider upgrade programme, of which Secure I.T. Environments also completed mechanical and electrical infrastructure upgrade works at its other hospitals.

Chris Wellfair, projects director at Secure I.T. Environments, said: “Running any NHS data centre project presents a number of challenges, especially when a site is operating 24/7/365.

“We have many years’ experience working with NHS trusts in the UK, successfully delivering projects on sites where the public and staff are constantly present, and downtime is not an option.”
