Global Financial Client, Corporate Center
Our client serves banking, brokerage, and corporate clients on the east coast with a wide range of financial services. In an effort to increase their facility’s reliability and expand their space to accommodate 300 additional traders, the client selected Syska Hennessy Group to perform and audit the existing MEP conditions of their corporate center using our Critical Facilities Balance Sheet™.
This assessment includes items such as:
- Primary and backup power components
- Primary and backup cooling components
- Fire protection systems
- Operations and maintenance procedures
- Base building infrastructural dependencies
In addition to the Critical Facilities Balance Sheet™ assessment, our team is providing a gap analysis to measure differences between the existing MEP conditions and the Tier III and IV level of reliability. The recommendations to fill the gap will be outlined in matrix format. We will also prepare rough order of magnitude (ROM) costs to perform each of the recommendations using our construction estimators.
Our assessment includes stakeholder interviews which include both the owner and personnel who are pivotal to understanding their business. From this and a comparison of the reliability of other similar business within the financial industry, we can determine the desired level of reliability. We will bring examples based on our experience with some of the largest banks and critical facilities data centers in the world. In addition, these interviews are critical to establishing goals for flexibility and scalability that are consistent with the business vision.
