It was quite a while since the last post. During that time we had a few changes in scope due to College construction projects that were planning to move computer room chillers onto the roof of the Mechanical Engineering building and installation of additional fan units co-located with existing ones. As a result our scope and priorities were reviewed and we tendered for the following work:
1 Lighting in ICT suite
2 “Cold aisle” installation
3 Control units and adjustments to operations
Free cooling option we originally scoped for the project will be pursued via a different estates project which will replace one of the chillers. Once we receive final detailed quotes we can publish the original Statement of Requirements and an updated benefits summary.
In parallel to this, we are also working towards fully automated meter reading collection and reporting. More on this in the next blog.
