Data Center Retrofit


Service overview


Data Center Retrofit Design Services


EYP Mission Critical Facilities, Part of Ramboll creates next-generation designs for both data centers and existing critical facilities, based on specific business objectives.

A Data Center Retrofit Design requires a significant amount of knowledge and expertise due to oftentimes unexpected constraints from the existing facility.


These constraints, for example, can be reflected in the lack of energy capacity planning or in the unintended original data center design that was not planned to think of its future requirements like for example a UPS upgrade or CRAC Unit Replacement. Other times, the challenges occur when upgrading the facility infrastructure or data center equipment while the data center is online and running its critical applications covering the enterprise's day-to-day operations. 


Common to all our work is our ability to customize every project to meet specific technologies and data center objectives with a maintenance-friendly, scalable and energy efficient design. EYP MCF, Part of Ramboll has designed over 70 million square feet of critically powered space around the world, including numerous Tier 3/4 and LEED Certified data centers. Additionally, utilizing specialized tools, software programs, a database of industry-specific applications along with the lessons learned from our commissioning practice, contribute to the expertise and innovation of our design team.



Key Steps


Our comprehensive services encompass electrical, mechanical, fire protection, fuel, control, and security systems for standalone data center buildings, new server rooms within existing buildings, and upgrade/expansion of existing facilities.

The above services are industry specific and the layout of the space planning fluctuates depending on the client's industry sector as well as the applications that are being run through this data center building(s).  

If required, EYP MCF, Part of Ramboll Data Center Consulting team can create a complete technology space plan for critical infrastructure. This could occur when there is an IT or hardware refresh event or when a Colocation acquires an enterprise data center that will require a more Colocation custom-fit white space environment.
