Prefabricated Buildings

Prefabricated Buildings

Prefabricated Buildings including Data Centre and Telecoms solutions are growing in popularity as modern companies look for smaller, more agile, and faster ways to deploy infrastructure capacity.

Prefabricated Data Centre & Telecoms solutions minimise initial capital outlay as they can be designed and built off-site using modular infrastructure to meet your exact requirements and then delivered on-site when you need them, wherever you need them.

Bespoke Modular Data Centres & Telecoms Cabins are ideal where installations are ‘static’, and ease of serviceability is paramount. Bespoke manufactured modular pods offer a practical and popular alternative to ISO containers, as they have the advantage of offering build widths ranging from 3.0m to 3.8m and lengths between 6m and 18m.

Unlike containerised solutions that have limited compromised rack & equipment access and circulation space, bespoke Prefabricated Modular Data Centres support flexible equipment rack access more aligned with conventional ‘bricks and mortar’ data centre and exchange facilities.

Prefab Modular & Mobile Data Centre, Telecoms and SCIF housings can also be formed and delivered in two half sections, positioned, joined and sealed onsite to form a larger facility. Alternatively, portable cabins, Modular & Mobile Data Centre pods or Telecoms cabins can also be positioned in clusters and connected via prefabricated “link” corridors.

Technical Prefabricated Configuration Options

Data Centre

Workspace Technology’s Modular Data Centre configurations are bespoke to suit individual client requirements. Typically, each Prefabricated Modular Data Centre pod can support between 4 to 12 equipment racks with power design densities ranging from 5kW to 60kW and beyond. By deploying multiple pods, the rack count can be scaled to suit individual data centre requirements.

Typical All-In-One Modular Data Centre systems are delivered complete with:

  • A computer grade raised access floors
  • Cooling systems
  • Fire suppression & detection
  • Equipment cabinets
  • Critical and standard power distribution
  • UPS systems
  • Internal inter-cabinet Category 6/6A and Fibre Optical cabling
  • Secure access control
  • Environmental and DCIM management systems

Following positioning, connection to site services and commissioning, the Modular Data Centre is ‘server ready’!

Telecoms Cabin

Workspace Technology’s Technical Prefabricated Telecoms Cabins are bespoke to suit individual client requirements as appropriate for fixed line, mobile, radar or other transmission applications.

Typically, all-in-one Telcoms Cabins will be configured with:

  • Antistatic vinyl flooring
  • Cooling and airflow containment system
  • Fire suppression & detection
  • 19” cabinets
  • Critical and standard power distribution
  • UPS or battery backed inverter systems
  • Overhead power
  • ELV and fibre containment
  • Intruder detection
  • Secure access control
  • Remote environmental monitoring and management systems depending on application.

Modular Data Centre & Telecoms Cabin Key Features

    • Server Ready – pre-engineered, and wired ready, for instant deployment of servers or telecoms transmission equipment.
    • Self-Contained System– complete with cabinets, cooling, Gas Fire Suppression, UPS and power distribution (All-In-One Option).
    • Energy and Environmentally Efficient– designed using Workspace Technology's ‘EcoDesign’ best practice principles to reduce carbon emissions through design and technology.
    • Rapid Deployment– quick and simple with minimum on-site preparation needed, for immediate functionality.
    • Scalable – Modular ‘right size’ designs and configuration.
    • Resilient – N+1 and 2N design implementation options.

As the Data Centres, Telecoms Cabins and Secure Compartmented Facilities are built in a controlled factory environment before being assembled onsite, lead times are shorter. This enables capacity to be planned over a much shorter time frame allowing for the Prefabricated Modular Data Centre to be expanded as the need for capacity arises. It also has the added benefit of being able to take advantage of the latest innovations that increases efficiency and reduces costs with each new phase.
