Secure I.T. Environments completes data centre project at Hammersmith Hospital

Written by Wed 15 Jul 2020

Hospital is part of the Imperial College Healthcare Trust, which has over 12,000 staff, caring for around 1.5 million patients a year

A new data centre room at one of London’s busiest hospitals has been completed, the company behind the project has announced.

Imperial College Healthcare Trust enlisted UK data centre firm Secure I.T. Environments to design and build a new server and communications room at Hammersmith Hospital, as part of its wider IT upgrade initiative.

They opted for an accessible ground floor location, which Secure I.T stripped back and packed out with new cabinets, cooling and power systems.

Secure I.T. Environments’ design included 6×19” cabinets, UPS, energy-efficient air conditioning systems in N+1 configuration, “intelligent” power distribution units and an environmental monitoring system.

The design and build firm also handled the electrical infrastructure and cabling services for the project, as well as conducting a deep clean upon completion.

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

“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. Those same skills help us deliver great projects for other sectors including retail, education, manufacturing and telecommunications.”

Secure I.T. Environments has also recently completed mechanical and electrical infrastructure upgrade works at other Imperial College Trust hospitals.

The company specialises in design, implementation and installation management services for private, healthcare, education and government sectors, as well as co-hosting companies in the UK and offshore.
