IT / Telecom

ARP provides complete end-to-end design solutions for IT/Telecommunication Infrastructure for the Built Environment. Our designers remain at the forefront of this fast-evolving industry and are experienced with all aspects of International Telecommunication standards, including EIA / TIA and the BICSI Telecommunication standards, as well as the requirements of the local Telecommunications Regularity Authorities.

The ARP design process includes the passive and active components for all aspects of the IT networks such as distribution topologies, copper and fiber structured cabling systems, patch panels, cable management, intelligent patching systems, equipment racks, bandwidth analysis , detailing of active network switching equipment, wireless, firewalls, IP telephony systems etc. We work closely with Architects and Engineers to design and coordinate equipment room spaces, operations areas, outlet locations, containment and infrastructure, MEP and structural requirement and allocations, and security of the planned equipment and spaces.

Data centers, used as dedicated. stand-alone facilities, or as part of multi-use developments, form a key part of our design services. We can assist with the design of all resilience levels from computer room to Tier 4 dedicated facilities as per ANSI/TIA 942 Standards. Designs are tailored to provide the balance between CAPEX and the targeted ANSI/TIA 942 Data Centre 4-Tier Rating which is achieved only through close coordination with the Architectural, Civil, MEP, Fire and Security design teams.
