Our delivery teams all have a Main Contracting background, with many years of experience between them and all specialising in the Mission Critical / Data Centre field. We are familiar with all forms of contract and have undertaken both minor works, carrying out critical plant replacements working in a live environment, and significant fit-out projects as the Main Contractor. We have strong, ISO accredited processes that ensure we deliver a quality product on time, safely and economically. We have always adopted a collaborative approach as outlined in our mission statement and this coupled with our experience managing highly technical projects results in successful delivery for our clients. We are a member of the Considerate Constructor Scheme and all of our projects in the UK are registered with the scheme helping to raise the image of construction with the general public. This also benefits our clients by ensuring that the work areas and client’s site are maintained in a clean, tidy and well-ordered condition, minimising the impact of noise and dust. Where BREEAM or LEED accreditation for the building is required we have experience in delivering the targeted construction phase points.
The MiCiM team have extensive experience in delivering projects under this form of contract and have successfully completed a €106M Data Centre project on this basis. Our ISO accredited processes supported by Procore Technologies Construction Management Platform can be adapted to deliver a quality product on time, safely and economically in line with the governance and reporting requirements of our clients. We have in-house expertise to manage the programme, commercial, design development and commissioning processes which we integrate into the client team, whilst always adopting a collaborative approach with the designers, trade contractors and suppliers as outlined in our mission statement. This results in successful delivery for our clients. We can also offer a hybrid integrated service of Project and Construction Management, where the client requires pre-construction advice, value engineering and procurement assistance. We are able to give a bespoke structure to achieve the project requirements whilst minimising cost and reducing programme.
As Project Managers we bring a wealth of detailed technical knowledge and experience of Data Centre construction to assist our clients through all phases of the RIBA process. We provide a pragmatic hands-on approach from concept to post project completion that can provide experienced advice on buildability, strategic programming, design development and management, contractor management and reporting, quality management, commissioning review and advice and close out management. We utilise our ISO accredited processes that can be adapted in line with our client’s governance procedures to manage risk and give accurate and timely advice.
Our team’s capability includes full IT and Network deployment in the Data Centre sector. The MiCiM team can assist a client with the design development, installation and commissioning of their IT project requirements.
We also offer a complete turnkey solution – including IT design and deployment and MEP services – for comms room works, moves and new builds.
As part of our end-to-end project service offer, MiCiM also offers a Contract Management & Advisory Service. The aim of this service is to take the headache out of contract and legal risks, issues and tasks on construction projects. The Contract Management & Advisory Service includes:
• Construction & commercial contract review, negotiation, and execution
• Management of collateral warranty execution and delivery
• On-going strategic contract advice to facilitate a dispute free project
• Management of other project specific legal risks, issues and tasks (i.e. insurance, property, wayleaves)
• Commercial awareness training
• Internal business contract risk identification and strategic solutions
A proven track record within construction and engineering, working to ASHRAE standards within Data Centre delivery, gives us unrivaled expertise in this field.
Our engineers have been working in the mission critical environment for years and have extensive experience from the design stage, through construction, managing quality, ultimately to commissioning management.
Capital plant replacement is another area where our experience and technical expertise excels.
It is vitaly important to have the right level of experience on every project at an early stage in order to avoid the pitfalls which can lead to programme pressure.
Through our extensive Data Centre delivery knowledge, we have utilised a number of industry recognised gateway processes (ASHRAE, ATP or similar) and have worked with external commissioning auditors to integrate the management of this process.
We are therefore able to offer an integrated solution to manage the Engineering, Quality Assurance and Commissioning process from any stage of a project – and the following services:
