ABS provides a new power and air conditioning solution for City & Guilds...

To future-proof its power requirements and ensure technology remains consistent for students and tutors alike, learning providers City & Guilds looked to ABS for expert guidance and round-the-clock maintenance.

ABS has worked closely with the Facilities Department at City & Guilds for a number of years. During this time, IT has become a major tool for City & Guilds in enabling exams and information to be made accessible via the Web.

Evaluating Power Requirements
In future-proofing power requirements to maintain and expand its business, City & Guilds tasked ABS to evaluate its power and air conditioning requirements over a five-year period. The ABS assessment highlighted a need for City & Guilds to install a fully automatic diesel generator to counteract the threat of a mains power outage.

The Solution
Following further investigation, ABS advised City & Guilds that a new uninterruptible power supply system with 30 minutes power back up would need to be installed. The back up power was recommended as the City & Guilds main servers were not able to accept a break in power.

Now supporting all the essential City & Guilds services throughout the building, the diesel generator ensures that even in the event of a power outage a back up supply is triggered in 15 seconds.

To cater for the additional IT equipment within the Computer Room and equipment for future purchase, ABS has also installed additional close control air conditioning units. Additional IT Cabinet power supplies were also installed within the false floor void for future utilisation.

Ongoing Maintenance
ABS provides a fully-managed preventative maintenance service to City & Guilds, and monitors the installation 24 hours a day, 365 days a year via City & Guilds' Building Management System.
