Lighting Installation & Repair for Digital Realty
Scope of works
Install LED lights, PIRs and relevant cabling.
Digital Realty built the global standard for technical real estate, developing a unique capability to acquire, manage, and scale data centre campuses. Now, Digital Realty is building a unique ecosystem of open solutions that power customer growth through exceptional service on a foundation of unrivalled data centre expertise.
The customer requirement on this installation was to repair the existing lighting infrastructure from water damage and make a significant energy saving to the chiller deck lighting.
We faced the challenge of replacing lighting with a suitable LED replacement, as each fitting was to have a PIR sensor so only lighting within the occupied areas would trigger. Thermal PIRs were offered by Berkeley Installations over microwave sensors, which are prone to picking up false movement around chillers and therefore switch on without a requirement, wasting valuable electricity.
Deliveries were monitored due to the changes in materials required (moving from Microwave to Thermal PIRs). This caused delayed lead times but did not impact the completion date. Ongoing updates were made to the project plan and to the customer to fall in line with material delivery. Additional labour was not required to bring the installation date in on time.
The project was completed on time and monitored by Berkeley Installations and the customer to ensure the savings were being made as per our projected comparisons.
