KENT is setup to deliver projects from initial planning and concept design to fully commisioned data centers.
Providing a turnkey solution by combining data center expertise, design, construction management and MEP engineering & fitout through a single point of contact is a major value add for our clients, which helps to eliminate inefficiencies and significant losses in terms of budget and program.
On time and budget delivery for turnkey projects is at the core of development approach. With ever changing IT requirements, rapid planning and delivery which is servicing the business case is an essential ability.
We understand the importance of minimizing downtime and having a reliable data center. We work to implement reliable system designs by cooperating with world class equipment providers of critical systems. We deploy our experienced engineering teams to ensure the quality of implementation that will be crucial for our client’s requirements at operation phase.
Keeping the data center secure is essential for our clients productivity, profitability and reputation. Our clients require multi layer security in their data centers that is supported with latest technologies including controlled visitor access systems, biometrics and video surveillance. We understand the criticality and importance of integrating all security layers within the data center to the building management and monitoring systems.
Considering the high energy consumption levels of Data Centers, KENT Datapark focuses on sustainability and adapting solutions to create efficient cooling and electrical distribution systems. Today data center clients approach sustainability both from environmental and financial angles to minimize total cost of ownership. We work very closely with client’s consultants to ensure energy and operational efficiencies and deliver flexible solutions. Our engineers have the understanding sustainability principles for data centers and we work with industry leading advisors for LEED certification and PUE targets.
- Fast-track Program Management
Our project management heritage allows us to set fast-track programs in line with the requirements of business case. We establish detailed programs coordinating all elements of design, building, MEP fitout and commissioning as part of our project execution plans and track them continuously to adapt to changes in requirements and foresee potential bottlenecks.
Data center projects are more complex as they require the orchestration of multi-vendor, multi-system implementations and integrations and program management for on-time and on-budget delivery. This relieves the clients from coordinating complex design, building construction, mechanical & electrical systems and other development processes. This single source approach help the clients to manage their risks and allows them to focus on their operational and business objectives.
- Quality Assurance & Quality Management
KENT’s international design and construction management experience in many emerging markets allows us to meet and exceed the quality benchmarks of our international clients. Our extensive construction cost database allows us to set the right project cost budgets early on in line with the optimum quality requirements.
KENT Datapark is setup to deliver projects from concept design to fully commissioned data centers. Our scope covers the full cycle including:
Building and owning your own data center or facility is not the only option for data center users. KENT DATAPARK offers efficient, flexible and feasible solutions to develop your purpose-built facility through long term lease agreements which alleviates the financial burden of capital incentive developments. We can structure various investment models from powered shell structures to fully equipped facilities.
Our team is experienced in full cycle of the complex development process of mission critical facilities. Starting with site identification and due diligence,to concept design, local authority permitting process and utility negotiations, KENT Datapark is your one stop solution partner for the whole development process.
- Site Assessment & Due Diligence
Selecting the right location is the key step to develop a reliable data center. Our development teams have experience and capability for in depth assessment of components such as accessibility, site risks including seismic, flood, flight path, security, infrastructure availability and zoning factors. This assessment is being incorporated into the project plans and budgets early on to establish sound business plans.
Our design process start with understanding the client’s requirements and align with project budget targets. We combine our design and engineering expertise with our world class data center design solution partners to set the right design objectives to balance cost and availability. We constantly follow innovations in power, cooling and building management system technologies, so they are adapted into concept designs.
- Support in Local Authority Approvals and Permits
Through our extensive real estate development and project management experience in emerging markets, we rapidly align design objectives with local authority zoning and permitting requirements. As data centers have various differences in terms of specification, our permitting experience adds major value in terms of approval process and timelines.
Data center infrastructure requirements may in many cases exceed the available utility provisions in selected site locations due to high power and multiple connectivity needs. Utility agreements and negotiations with providers is a challenging process, which requires to align infrastructure drawdown plans of the planned data center with infrastructure growth plans of the utilities, which may also require management of additional off site infrastructure capital expenditures. KENT has extensive experience in this area helps to control infrastructure budgets and ensure on time delivery of external utilities.
Our internal team of architects and engineers is multi disciplinary covering all fields including civil, electrical and mechanical design, and we also work with best in class design consultants locally to ensure that the concept design is developed in the detail and quality required for the best possible implementation for construction documentation and adapt to client and end user requirement changes. Scalability and flexibility are key principles that drives our approach to floor layouts, structural design and electrical and mechanical system design.
With our collaborative data center construction management team, we put our experience and expertise to provide practical solutions with cost and time impacts to ensure a successful project delivery.
- Construction & Data Hall Fitoutite
KENT Datapark construction management team with over 25 years of large scale project experience across Turkey, Middle East and CIS countries has unique program management ability to match the fast pace delivery requirements of our clients.
