You don't need internet with an enterprise level SLA, consumer grade internet is fine at his speeds.
You don't NEED redundant anything besides storage. If he has a major outage I'm sure the users on his server will understand; unless they are paying for this.
It's recommended that he use high frequency cores, a sizable amount of ram, and fast storage.
Consider an intel 4790/6700. 32GB ram. 2x 1TB SSD's in RAID 1. Quality hardware. Don't bother getting complicated with denser raid arrays, redundant power, ram disk, etc.

if you want to make your own case, i'd suggets you go to a local DIY store (shipping those materials costs a metric shit ton)
and ask them for advice on the materials they have.
note: dont tell them you're building a computer case, they'll have no idea. tell them you have some vareous hardware in your garage you'd like to make a box for, which has to be quite sturdy, and with specific dimensions. tell them what tools you have available.
although, if you have to ask how to make your own computer case, i'd say you better dont. even seasoned case modders make mistakes, imagine what can go wrong when you have no idea what you're doing
