As well as successfully delivering large IT infrastructure projects, we specialise in seamlessly bridging the gap between construction and an operational environment. LMG’s project management team has the knowledge and expertise to deliver, integrate and synchronise every aspect of the transition. Our range of intelligent building services will help you reduce cost and risk – and give your data centre the best possible start in life.
AN INFORMED APPROACH TO DATA CENTRES
DataSpace can help you reduce:
Use of resources by 30%, deferring the need for additional data centres by three years or more.
Asset overlaps by up to 50%, providing 100% visibility of the asset base.
Energy costs by 30% and energy used for lighting by up to 90%.
One of our core strengths is designing and delivering high-performance, highly resilient copper and fibre ICT cabling infrastructures.
The increasingly rapid evolution and adoption of power over Ethernet (PoE) based technologies has made the choice, design and deployment of ICT cabling infrastructures more critical than ever before. As well as providing support for high bandwidth applications such as 10GBaseT, and ensuring noise immunity, contemporary Category 6 and Category 6a cabling infrastructures must support ever-increasing power requirements such as UPoE at up to 60 or even 100 watts. Our Construct team has the necessary design and installation experience and skills to ensure that your chosen cabling infrastructure provides optimal levels of not only bandwidth but also power and thermal performance.
In addition to providing high bandwidth OM4 and OS2 optical solutions, our active participation in the BSI TCT/007/03 committee firmly puts us at the forefront of developing future standards, including the introduction of Category 8: a pre-requisite for the support of 40GBaseT within data centre environments.
To further optimise quality and performance, we have invested heavily in our integrated pre-termination facility and manufacturing processes, which use Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology to create bespoke, pre-terminated fibre optic and copper cable assemblies. Data centres of all sizes can benefit from the pre-termination of ICT cabling, by reducing deployment times, waste and materials.
Our Construct cabling teams control the project management and documentation process through Insight IQ, our online service dashboard. As well as being a highly effective management tool, it gives our customers full, round-the-clock visibility of any project’s status, documentation and procedures.
Connect IQ, our automated infrastructure management system, enables customers to visualize the physical location and connectivity of all intelligent building sub-systems and their associated assets. This BIM-derived data can be directly integrated with data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) systems, greatly enhancing operational effectiveness and efficiency.
Power, monitor and control all your building services sub-systems, from physical security systems and power management to digital signage and audio-visual equipment, through a single, dedicated, power over Ethernet (POE) based building services LAN. By installing both the LAN and a universal cabling infrastructure during the construction phase, we can help you reduce your installation timescales and overall power requirements, as well as costs and risk. A coordinated, integrated approach to sub-system deployment will also mitigate the risk of conflict between systems and guarantee interoperability.
The ability to harvest real-time data and manage the resources within individual enclosures is of significant benefit to data centre managers and system architects. Through the latest intelligent infrastructure management and environmental monitoring systems, LMG can provide a real-time view of space and resource capacity within the data centre. This business intelligence will help you optimise, automate and streamline the equipment installation and provisioning process, reducing time to production, improving productivity and extending the life of the data centre.
Meeting all the security requirements of modern data centres, our IP converged SMS portfolio provides a proven, integrated solution for multiple security sub-systems, enabling security staff to efficiently monitor and manage alarms and events. The portfolio includes a physical access control system, CCTV, intruder alarm detection, IP audio and video intercom and building management system integration for alarm reporting.
LMG’s building performance LED lighting solutions can power, control and communicate with LED fixtures via integral high-density sensors that connect directly to a building services LAN. Saving up to 90% of the energy used by traditional fluorescent lighting, they capture important environmental and motion data that can be used by other sub-systems and workflow tools to improve productivity and reduce long-term costs. Through lighting policies such as follow-me and guide-me lighting, data center managers can also deliver a truly “lights out” environment.
LMG provide an extensive portfolio of video conferencing and audio-visual solutions & services. Our Construct IQ’s package & project managers are highly experienced in the delivery of a wide range of multi-room, multi-source audio-visual systems and video conferencing platforms. Our AV solutions include; NOC video walls, video conferencing to single or multi room environments, interactive AV providing intuitive remote operation of equipment and digital signage. Our AV solutions can deliver HD feeds to any location or device via the Building Services LAN.
As your data centre becomes fully functional, make sure its infrastructure and systems keep reaching their potential and operating with maximum efficiency. Through our managed services and tools we can offer a seamless transition from project management to everyday operational support, using BIM insight from the construction phase to improve productivity and minimise costs in the future.
Make best use of your data centre and extend its life, with help from our advanced infrastructure and capacity management tools.
