Background and challenges
McCann is an historical client, which has trusted for many year the quality of the GESAB team and their work. In fact, the data center of McCann was one of the first GESAB ever installed.
The project started because of a moving from the offices of the renowned agency, which called for transportation and the DPC, in need of some special measured given the project’s complexity. The final technical solution was to install a DPC with a technical room to provide the proper coverage to the offices, complemented with a cloud data center.
Working together with the construction company and the new headquarters’ property owners, due to the fact that we had to carry out a civil construction work, were details of the project we had to face.
We completed the execution of the civil work construction and the installation of GESAB’s very own In Row cooling system. The In Row system allows for improved cooling focused on hot spots of the Data Processing Center. Our equipment can reach a cooling capacity of 36 kW per unit (options of 12 kW, 24 kW and 36 kW), and, with that, we achieve 24/7 efficient equipment capable to withstand the most demanding environments.
The project of the new DPC was developed from scratch, considering always that we had to guarantee maximum functionality as well as the continuous operation of the service. The best possible security features were implemented, such as fire detection and extinguishing systems through the 3N NOVEC 1230 extinguishing agent, which is and eco-friendly extinguishing system.
We also installed an environmental management system, alarms, structured wiring, access control, as well as all of the electrical installations.
The project’s execution was a success that allowed us to maintain our good relationship with the client, a relationship based on trust and jobs well done.
Moreover, this project contributed to the development of new ones, such as the installation of seven conference rooms with AV equipment. A comprehensive work by GESAB through which we provided the customer with innovative and efficient solutions for their new offices.
