Secure Decommissioning & Disposal

Infrastructure and Facility Decommission Services

McCollister’s Technical Services (MTS) offers facility decommission services which include: decommission of data center facilities, removal of CRAC and aircon. units, condensers, fire suppression, generators, raised floors, conduit and structure cabling, ladder racks, cabinets, etc. MTS can decommission a facility ‘down to the slab’, in a full reinstatement project to the original state of the facility, or to ‘white-wall’, or remove equipment inside but leave key infrastructure for future-state use. Likewise, MTS can also look to find value on the secondary market for high value items, such as generators and scrap value for copper, aluminum, and other components found in enterprise data centers.
