Sydney Water tender for data centre upgrade

Current facility dates back to 1993

New South Wales state water authority, Sydney Water, is looking for contractors to carry out a refurbishment of its data centre in Homebush, Sydney.

The facility was built in 1993 to ensure that the authority’s critical production systems were maintained in a stable environment.

According to tender documents, the project will include the replacement of a raised data centre floor, maintenance on the electrical switchboard and uninterruptible power supply (UPS) board without disrupting power to the IT environment and an upgrade of the current building codes and standards.

“The scope includes project management plans such as quality, environment and safety along with a review of the detailed designs, staging plans, specifications for completeness and accuracy prior to construction,” the documents read.

In July 2011, Sydney Water signed a four-year managed services contract worth almost $30 million with Optus for the delivery of a whole-of-business telecommunications service.

It also consolidated two asset management applications including the Work and Asset Management System (WAMS) and Facilities Maximo (FMX) last year.

The contract period is for 55 weeks with a post-implementation review.

An industry briefing will be held at 11am on 16 February at the Homebush data centre, 4 Herb Elliot Avenue. The request for tender closes on 15 March at 9:30am.
