A data centre’s primary function typically is to house large quantities of computer and telecommunications hardware which affects the construction, operation, and physical security. Most of the data centres may impose special security requirements. Therefore, the planning of a data Centre by the designer and the various engineering disciplines that will assist in the planning and implementation of the design of the data centre i.e. electrical, mechanical, security, etc. shall be carried out in cooperation with the IT and telecommunications personnel, network professionals, the facilities manager, the IT end users, and any other personnel involved. This European Standard specifies general aspects for the design and specification of a data centre as a physical facility. It focuses on the selection of an appropriate site and the general construction and architectural elements of a data centre building. Some reference will be made to related factors to be considered, as the purpose of the architectural elements and building technology systems of a data centre is to provide a physical envelope and an environment that meets the needs of the information and telecommunication technology and its users.
