Q3’s hard services team cut its teeth in the world of data centres, supporting critical services infrastructure for major organisations. If the phone rang, you answered it no matter the time or day. That urgency and response mentality is a key part of our culture that endures today, and in that respect, we believe we are unlike many other hard service companies.
In this pressured environment, downtime or disruptions can result in significant financial losses and impact the operations of numerous organisations – not just the data centre host but perhaps thousands of client companies or individuals relying on the availability of that data. In the finance sector, a failure could even result in fines from the FCA.
Therefore, Q3’s approach to FM in data centres is one built on high levels of reliability, 24/7 availability, and redundancy to ensure uninterrupted operations.
The data centre systems are sophisticated and complex and so our engineers, through a combination of experience and training, have built the specialised knowledge and expertise needed to operate and maintain everything effectively.
Q3 is also well equipped to help data centre owners with the familiar issues of energy efficiency and environmental impact. Data centres consume huge amounts of energy due to the power requirements of IT equipment and cooling systems, so we can help implement energy efficiency measures such as optimising cooling systems, implementing advanced power management techniques, and exploring renewable energy options, to reduce operational costs and minimise environmental impact.
Q3 is a great business to work with and to work for. We were set up by a group of people motivated by experience to create a very different type of Facilities Management company. Here you’ll find out more about us and how we work. If that’s not enough, contact us
Here’s how Q3 works for other clients…
It’s been a fantastic journey so far and we have collectively achieved so much. Personally, I have learned a tremendous amount about the Q3 team and continue to do so.
Best of luck Q3! You are an exceptional partner to us, so much so we don’t see you as a separate business and we treat your people as ours.
If the client wants us to dress up in clown outfits and hand out balloons, that’s alright with me!
I just wanted to send in my thanks to Emma, who helped me on Saturday when my Mum passed out in front of TK Maxx. Emma was very friendly, calm and efficient, I don't know what I would have done without her. She was so professional and knew exactly what was needed I couldn't believe it when screens turned up and a wheel chair, all organised by Emma without making myself or especially my Mum feel stupid or an inconvenience. Please can you pass on mine, my Mum's and family's thanks to Emma, she is a star and a very kind person.
