This is a pivotal week for the project, in that migratory planning and preparations will be in full swing alongside build works. Works are now ready to begin on network and power for the data floors, which will see the project enter into it's second phase - technical engineering.
Further transformations have been made to the offices this week, with completion of various areas including the shower room and board room. Some of the office furniture from Sutton has now been migrated to the new site. Full office operations are expected to function from Bermondsey very shortly.
As you can see, the amenities at the new site are rapidly reaching completion. The final migration of office furniture and systems will be taking place imminently.
Week 5 has been truly revolutionary for the office space, with a tangible change for building site to a space ready for occupation.
The offices are now rapidly approaching a state fit for occupancy. We will be installing the final items in week six, after which point the office will be migrated.
Week 4 on site has seen the transformation of the office space really start to take shape. Emphasis has been placed on this side of the building so that our operational hub can be migrated to Bermondsey as soon as possible. As the pictures will begin to illustrate, we are maintaining our superb brand and corporate image, taking our stylistic offices to the next level with dramatic feature walls, interesting spaces and intrinsic design. This all creates a space which our staff are overjoyed to work in, and a space in which customers feel relaxed and at home.
As you can see, things are really beginning to take shape now. Week 5 will see things start to come together, with flooring and the early stages of furniture additions ahead of migrating our office to the new site shortly thereafter.
Week 3 focused largely on the final structural works in the office side of the facility, along with rewiring of the office electrical systems.
This week also saw us cut in our vision panels, which we are very excited about. We have never seen another data centre install anything like this before, so we are hoping it will be well received by our customers and the industry at large.
Can you guess exactly what these vision panels will allow for? We are keeping our cards close to our chest for the time being, however those with a keen eye will probably be able to work this out for themselves! We will present more detailed photos once the glass has been installed.
Much of the work undertaken this week has been behind the scenes, such as the rewiring of the office which is all hidden behind the walls, ceiling and under the floor. Another piece of structural work completed this week was the finalisation of the electrical intake room's cabinet wall, which will take most of our new electrical switch gear.
