MC West's critical facilities construction group is geared toward two separate markets.   For small to medium sized projects we offer complete TurnKey construction services with MC West as lead (go to Turn-Key Services).  For large construction project applications, MC West offers a variety of supplemental services for both owners and other A&E/construction firms.    Often times, much larger construction or A&E firms retain us to perform specialized construction Project Management (PM) services for them.  There, we can supplement a firm's in-house talent pools with expert resources in areas needed for projects at hand.  We have considerable experience in fast track, live data center modifications.  This is far more exacting and high repercussion work than greenfield construction due to the difficulty  assuring zero uptime impact for commissioning & cutover activities.   Principals at MC West have successfully completed hundreds of live data center modifications.  We rely on this experience to deliver successful and on-time project completions routinely.  We can deliver full construction estimates involving cutting edge equipment accurately and quickly.   Our Project Managers are proactive in finding solutions to difficult project issues including seismic withstand, code issues, scripting & client approval process, factory & site test logistics & assurance, safety issues, isolated commissioning, and more.

GREEN Issues:  MC West has perhaps more experience with high efficiency rotary UPS, CPS and flywheel systems than any consulting firm available regardless of size.  But the green advantages do not come free.  These systems are very complex and some are far less reliable than traditional UPS.  Let MC West help you sort it all out.

Critical Facilities Infrastructure:  Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems, Continuous Power Systems (CPS), diesel generator / ATS/AOTS systems, static transfer switches, flywheel systems,  UPS battery systems, power distribution, monitoring, CRAC / HVAC, flooring, fire suppression, access / security.

Services:  Construction Project Management, feasibility studies, budget estimating, design, FAT & SAT test consulting, final commissioning, cutover scripting/CEWA, peer review & owners agency services.   We have completed well over 100 major live data center and critical infrastructure upgrades for Fortune 500 clientele on time and on budget.  There is never "finger pointing" on MC West projects.   We specialize in live work, primarily at Tier II, III and IV data centers.  This means critical loads are live and cannot be completely or often even partially shut down due to any planned or unplanned event.  MC West is proud to say we have never dropped load or impacted a client in any way during a live cut-over.
