The partnership

Bouygues Energies and Services, a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction were selected by VIRTUS Data Centres, one of the UK’s leading data centre providers to design and construct several of its data centres in the UK. Bouygues E&S invited OryxAlign to tender on the Integrated Communications Network (ICN) and IT infrastructure as part of the overall construction package.

The implementation, ongoing reliability and resilience of the ICN is an integral and critical element of any data centre. It underpins the integrity and high-availability of the Building Management System, Power Management System, Access Control and Security. OryxAlign have a focussed data centre design team consisting of experienced solution architects, network infrastructure engineers and security consultants. All ICN infrastructure submissions are accurately scoped and designed to meet current and future technical requirements.

The OryxAlign and Bouygues partnership has successfully delivered 3 separate data centre projects for VIRTUS. (LONDON6, LONDON7 and LONDON10), with OryxAlign having delivered the entire ICN infrastructure under the Bouygues brand.

Our approach

Following the submission and acceptance of the ICN bid, a series of consultation workshops are hosted where the relevant stakeholders and service partners discuss and agreed the final specification and interoperability of the various applications and systems. OryxAlign play a key role in ensuring all service partners benefit from a well-designed and resilient ICN.

The implementation of the ICN is delivered in stages and is designed to align with the intensive construction program. Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) and Site Acceptance Testing (SAT) phases are completed by OryxAlign which ensure the solution is implemented to the highest standards and quality, and in line with the required specification. On the completion of the ICN implementation and prior to handover and go live phases of the project, the new infrastructure is formally on-boarded by the Managed Services division at OryxAlign, who are contracted directly by VIRTUS Data Centres to deliver a 24×7 managed technology support service.

OryxAlign’s ‘bigger picture’ approach to data centre design and build projects sets us apart from many other providers in this sector. Regardless of whether we manage and support the data centre after the build, we always deliver the finished product to a consistently high and resilient standard we would be happy to manage ourselves.

OryxAlign have a deep domain understanding of the data centre build landscape and the critical nature of the IT infrastructure needed to deliver the highest level of resilience and performance in a demanding environment.
