Data Center Network Design Services

By selecting ABcom as your data center design-build contractor, you’ll establish a single point of contact for both the strategy and installation of your project’s structured cabling and special systems. Our team of BICSI Registered Communications Distribution Designers (RCDD) has successfully completed the design of projects ranging from small tenant-improvement projects to state-of-the-art, mission-critical data centers. As your design-build partner, we will be able to offer you several cost-saving advantages for ongoing data center infrastructure management.

By allowing construction to begin while the data center design is being finalized, the design-build process shortens the duration of your project, which translates into earlier utilization of your facility.

During the network infrastructure design process, ABcom’s data center designers will be in constant communication with your team to review the progress and the revised guaranteed maximum price (GMP). As potential changes are proposed, the corresponding additive or deductive revision to the GMP can be evaluated up front, allowing you to determine the impact of the potential change and begin the process of value engineering to offset the cost of requested scope changes. Our experience in value engineering allows us to ensure the project meets your budget, without sacrificing performance or quality.

Pre-Construction Services

ABcom is uniquely qualified to serve as your data center design-build contractor. Our primary objective is to protect the interests of your organization and the integrity of your structured cabling and wireless network infrastructure design.

After selecting ABcom as your design-build contractor, our team of data center designers will immediately set into motion the requisite preconstruction services for your project. We will prepare a summary project schedule with major milestones for design deliverables and completion. Then we will recommend equipment and material specifications that are appropriate for your specific project. After determining these specifications, ABcom will begin negotiations with manufacturers to establish discounted pricing for your components.

For fast-track projects, ABcom ensures all materials are entered into the manufacturers’ production sequences for on-time delivery to your project. Any items with lead times in excess of project requirements will be identified early enough to make appropriate substitutions. We will coordinate with other specialty trades to ensure there are no scope omissions or overlaps. If omissions occur, ABcom will recommend the appropriate subcontractor to perform the scope of work.
