EllisDon's Energy & Digital Services Team Selected to Deliver Managed Services Solution for ICD Brookfield Place
We are excited to announce EllisDon's Energy & Digital Services team has been selected to deliver our Managed Services solution for ICD-Brookfield Place, the mixed use high rise building located in the heart of Dubai International Financial Centre in the United Arab Emirates
Our team will support the intelligent infrastructure that was deployed during the construction of ICD Brookfield Place. Our Managed Services team will provide both on-site and remote support and maintenance of the converged building network, the wireless network, the VoIP network and the building firewalls including access management via the virtual private network. We will also maintain and support both the structured cabling and the base building fiber.
EllisDon provides a unique skill set with respect to our support model. Our solution is comprised of vendor-certified on-site technicians and remote management via our Network Operations Centre. This means that the intelligent infrastructure at ICD-Brookfield Place is monitored 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
“The intelligent road map of ICD Brookfield Place is a direct result of our Mission to integrate cutting-edge real estate technologies which enables us to be at the forefront of innovation and sustainability. From the moment we decided to build a game-changing commercial tower focused on the intelligent operations, unique user experience, cost-effectiveness and future-proofed infrastructure, we recognized the need for a world-leading Master Technology Integrator, and EllisDon was carefully selected as our partner throughout the journey to achieve our long term goal at ICD Brookfield Place.” - Haithem Ibraheem – ICD Brookfield Place Operations Manager.
EllisDon started working with the ICD Brookfield Place team in 2018 and this collaboration paved the way for the implementation of the Intelligent Building Roadmap. The roadmap consisted of three phases:
Phase I: EllisDon was retained to assist in the development of the digital strategy for the building. This included detailing the building’s intelligent roadmap and reviewing the design drawings and the specifications for the building systems to determine their level of compliance.
Phase II: EllisDon was selected to be the project’s Building Integration System consultant. Our scope included the management of the RFP development for the active network, the management of the structured cabling and the management of the RFP development for the Centralized Management Platform.
Phase III: EllisDon was selected to implement the converged building network (active components). This included finalizing the bill of material, scheduling the procurement of the hardware, configuration, installation and commissioning.
We are proud of our role in the construction of one of Dubai’s most technologically advanced commercial towers and our ongoing involvement in its continued evolution. To learn more about EllisDon’s involvement in each phase, click here: https://www.ellisdon.com/project/icd-brookfield-place/
