This 14,000sqm industrial facility houses a state of the art data centre. The new facility is security zoned 4 and 5, and is designed as a Tier 3 facility with Tier 4 electrical configuration under the TIA global standards.
Air cooled and deploying a closed loop water system, Fyshwick was designed to be highly sustainable with a PUE of 1.2 or lower which is globally significant given no water is used in the cooling process.
With industry leading power usage efficiency innovations and technology, and 2N backup for all systems Fyshwick has the ability to operate in ‘island mode’ – by using onsite power generators and recycled water to transfer to fully independent ‘off the grid’ operations if needed.
The project framework was collaborative, with Hindmarsh leading the delivery of the building structure whilst the client purchased large items of plant, and engaged mechanical and electrical contractors directly. This approach led to significant innovations such as alternate wall systems which have reduced construction duration and cost whilst providing a more physically secure data environment.
