Key information

Completion date: 2017

Client requirements

Through its facilities, Khazna provides industry benchmark power supply and cooling levels to serve growing regional demand.

Khazna required support for the fit-out and completion of a third Pod at two locations to enable an additional IT load capability of 1,500kW.

  • 1,100m2 white space area of Pod 3
  • 1,500 KW additional IT load capability

Our contribution

Our team project managed the design and build to bring the empty shell and core data hall into operation. This included expansion of the cooling plant and power distribution system to cater for the additional load, the interface of new mechanical, electrical and extra low voltage systems as well as controls with the base build systems and civil construction works.

Making the difference

We led the competitive contractor and consultant tender processes and established a centralised project control team in Abu Dhabi to oversee effective mobilisation, management of contractor and consultant performance, and the monitoring of health, safety and environmental standards. 

"I would like to thank Turner & Townsend for the hard work they have put in to the successful completion of Khazna POD 3 fit out...They were an integral part of the project – managing all project stages from pre-tender until completion. They brought with them a great deal of project management experience, which was invaluable on a project of this size and is one of the key reasons for its success."
