Business Continuity Centre

Business Continuity Centre Project

The extent of the works included the decommissioning of an existing data centre building to accommodate the new use with workstation accommodation for 700 staff over 5 floors & support infrastructure amenities, breakout spaces and collaboration zones.

Complex essential services were arranged in a N +1 configuration to ensure redundancy in the event of any failures as well as integrated AV & IT facilities.

Commencing in August 2017 the programme from the outset was constrained. To deal with this and de-risk the project APG managed the project by the;

– Preparation of a high-level design establishing the client’s minimum functional requirements to allow a tender to be issued within 6 weeks of commencement & early procurement of long lead items for essential services
– Engagement of a preferred contractor under a collaborative ‘Early Contractor Involvement’ (ECI) process to refine the design
– Value engineering exercise with the Contractor to achieve the project budgets while maintaining the critical scope items
– Progressive testing & relocations by the Business Continuity team
The collaborative team approach during construction enabled the full integration of all client streams to be achieved within the complex constraints of the project.
