University of Melbourne Data Centre - Stage 2

Energy efficient data centre boosts university capacity

The University of Melbourne expanded one of its two onsite data centres to meet demands for research, cloud based initiatives and disaster recovery of applications and services across geographically separated sites.

To deliver a successful project and satisfy the client, SHAPE had to meet critical timelines that were aligned with funding deadlines. SHAPE focused on early communication with the multiple project stakeholders, and a flexible approach to deal with design changes and ensure that the project was delivered on time.

The data centre also required sustainable elements to be integrated into the data centre fitout. The plant and equipment installed by SHAPE are the most energy efficient systems that are currently available in the market, resulting in a satisfied client and a point of difference for the university.
