The Maxwell Centre is one of several large ICT infrastructure installations PTC have undertaken on behalf of Cambridge University at their Science campus in West Cambridge. The Maxwell Centre itself is a landmark building on the Cambridge Science Park for physical sciences and engineering.PTC worked closely with both the client team and our own supply chain to support the design and implementation of the network installation to satisfy the client requirements.
The building is a four storey building with a centralised data centre on the lower level in which PTC designed and installed a multi cabinet and B line cold aisle containment system. PTC worked closely with the Mechanical and Electrical contractors to design the comms room where there were space and coordination constraints to overcome, ultimately we achieved a successful solution.
