Anglia Ruskin University is one of the largest universities in the East of England with around 30,000 students. In 2010 the University proposed new plans to build a new data centre as part of a 5 year IT strategy that would increase their outstanding reputation for innovation and achievement.
Sudlows were selected as the main contractor for the exciting project initially aimed at developing a highly available, energy efficient and secure communications facility at
the Cambridge campus which would integrate all IT systems.
The end design was expected to be mindful of present and emerging UK Government policies covering carbon reduction, energy usage and environmental sustainability; something Sudlows have plenty of experience in providing as active members of The Green Grid consortium and Endorsers of the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres.
From the moment Sudlows won the contract, we held detailed discussions and site inspections to look into the most suitable power, cooling and environmental monitoring preferences. This crucial phase helps build an accurate picture of how our clients want to progress.
