Critical environments characterize types of projects where the health of data, food products, processes, or procedures could be negatively impacted in a critical way. These are 'high stakes' areas where failure is not an option. Primarily these are data centers or clean room projects.
Capital has an extensive portfolio in both and has further developed our services related to data centers to include optimization modeling. A key client of the firm wanted real-time data to inform them relative to modifications and upgrades needed in their primary data center. A heavily instrumented environment using a wireless mech network provides data which in-turn, allows a rapid update of a simulation tool using computational fluid dynamics, allowing us to quickly access hot spots and impacts on airflow, cooling capacity and distribution. This capability is now available for use on all our data center projects to help us optimize these critical environments for our clients.
