Our involvement with a European project that consisted of the creation of a very large data centre being housed within a redundant distribution warehouse was challenging and very rewarding. The multi million pound scheme consists of thousands of server racking bays located within the existing building, combined with a number of sizeable plant compounds housing generators and fuel tanks.

The large back-up generators were supported on steel framework within the external plant compound, with the accompanying fuel tanks buried below ground. The scheme required extensive liaison and coordination with specialist manufacturers and suppliers as well as traditional design of structure and foundations.

The project included the creation of new roads, secure entrance areas and loading bay canopies. The distribution of significant data cabling below ground throughout the site also required extensive design consideration, particularly where interfacing with the existing building.

This rapidly growing industry demands the combination of fast construction programs with expert professional input and design. It is a challenging industry but one that assists in creating the internet backbone of the modern age.
