  • 6 self-contained Data Halls within main facility
  • Power density 1.72kW/m²

  • Diversity of carriers offering fully resilient connectivity
  • 24/7/365 on-site security fully managed on-site NOC
  • Manned vehicle entry gate to site & 2m high perimeter fence
  • Internal & External IP CCTV complete site coverage

 

The project was originally conceived as a single hit construction however Bouygues Energies & Services worked with VIRTUS to propose a modularised design which enabled the facility to be delivered in phases.

In the 1st phase 1000m2 of IT Space in 2 halls will be delivered with a further 4 halls contracted to be built by Bouygues Energies & Services.

Bouygues Energies & Services Contracting have provided a D&B EPC wrap giving the client the single point accountability and direct route to the construction and designers.
