Project Overview

Within 12 months, we completed the fast-track construction of a single storey, 16MW high-capacity data centre comprised of four data halls and an administration block.

The project involved the demolition of two existing data centres followed by a huge volume of earthworks and works on below ground infrastructure including gas, electricity and storm water systems. The site also involved a huge archaeological scope of works as well as grass being moved overground.

Despite the added challenges, we completed the data centre, the full mechanical and electrical fitout, two-line perimeter fencing, and security gates within the tight timeframe and to the satisfaction of our client.

We installed all the critical M&E elements using a racking system and built a combination of hard wire and busduct power distribution systems.

Construction and delivery of MV incomer buildings and MEP fitout included a utility company substation delivery and associated switchgear.

The building itself was built on a traditional concrete pad foundation with structural steel columns, and featured CRAC and DAHU installations with humidified water systems along with complex process water installation and plant.
