Add skilled professionals to your existing workforce providing engineering and subject matter services on demand supporting one or multiple data center projects.

Service Overview

Creating a next-generation data center requires multiple challenges including the maintenance-friendly, scalable, energy-efficient, and sustainable design. 

 

Data center owners, operators, and developers are rolling out new facilities at a furious pace.  Often, simply keeping up with the review of design and construction submittals, and keeping projects moving is not an option with their just-in-time delivery demands.  This puts their internal staff demands under significant pressure.

 

EYP MCF, Part of Ramboll brings this level of skilled support to the entire data center planning, design, and build process.  Working side-by-side with your development, planning/design/construction, and operations teams, our EYP MCF professionals help assure your business objectives and design standards are incorporated and ultimately delivered throughout your project portfolio’s execution.

 

How can we help?

Working on a T&M basis, our engineers are there to support the owner/operator throughout the entire planning, design and build process, releasing the pressure of meeting the challenging timelines, design requirements, equipment procurements, building permits, vendor relationships, and any other additional challenges that can affect the project timeline or budget. 
 
Common to all our work is our ability to customize every project to meet specific technologies and data center objectives, even if it has a prototype or a duplicate design, each project is different, and multiple circumstances can affect the design of it, including the location of the project and its climate constraints (i.e. Water scarcity), the procurement challenges of not finding the specified MEP equipment to meet the project timelines, or in some cases the technology demands from the client client's (i.e. Liquid cooling, HPC, or Immersion cooling). 

Key Differentiators

  • Our engineers have the experience of designing over 70 million sq. ft. of data center raised-floor space. We lead the way in energy-efficient, cost-efficient, and performance-efficient data center design.
     

  • EYP MCF, Part of Ramboll is a leader in the development of LEED-certified data centers, and that skill can be applied to optimize any data center. You will work with consultants who advise governments on data center energy policy to reduce costs and energy consumption, water usage, and greenhouse gas emissions.

 

  • Extensive worldwide data center project experience, we leverage our proven high-density cooling, critical power, and energy-reduction design strategies for each new business case.

 

  • Our proposed resources are engineering professionals who have significant experience in completing complex projects, including data center designs with over 100 megawatts (MW) of power capacity and over 700,000 square feet of raised floor. 

 

  • Experience in design using liquid cooling technologies that support extreme high-density servers in a High-Performance Computer (HPC) or Supercomputer.

 

  •  Provide Design capabilities to work with renewable energy and off-grid solutions including a hydroelectric power source.  

 

  •  Extensive experience in different market sectors to provide a unique design up to the raised floor area using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis to predict and optimize design calculations of air volume and setpoint temperatures to enable savings in capital investment and system operating costs.

EYP MCF, Part of Ramboll has been providing ongoing Staff Augmentation & Technical Support Services to supplement the owner's design team for multiple build-outs simultaneously. Our subject matter expert's role includes reviewing, validating, and commenting on the multiple data center designs and deliverables to establish general acceptability of services content and general compliance with the Contract documents, local codes, and the Owner Project Requirements.


Providing these services relieves the client from the need to hire and train new talent while allowing them to focus on timely and cost-effective delivery.


Our scope also includes working with the Engineer of Record (EoR) and local construction teams to evaluate any Cost Optimization opportunities that are identified and ensure the implementation does not contradict with the OPR.
