Many areas of the new facility are now reaching completion, particularly in the 'front of house' expanses of the building. Apart from various finishing touches, more rooms have reached completion this week.
Progress is very solid as we move towards the Summer. The heavy technical works in the first data hall are ready to commence in earnest, with works under way in the coming weeks to build our state-of-the-art man traps and cable management systems. Our large exterior signage is due for installation in the coming weeks also.
Week 12 has seen further developments across the entire site, with advancements in the electrical intake room, as well as further amenity improvements.
Week 11 has seen further decommissioning of our Sutton site, along with fantastic developments at our new London Central facility. The offices were properly unpacked this week, allowing the Bermondsey site head quarters to come online. There is still a way to go until they are exactly as we want them (those that know our team will know that we take great pride in making our offices as personal / identifiable as possible), but they are well on their way to becoming our new home.
Next week will see our first deep clean, which will bring the facility into a new light after the first stage of works.
The 10 week milestone has seen exciting changes to the Bermondsey site, with a refreshed staff kitchen, installation of both the glass partitioning system for the board room and the racking in the ground floor storage area.
Week 9 has seen some more of the Sutton data centre decommissioned ahead of its closure, as well as the extension of our systems in Docklands. The Docklands facilities we use help form part of our global network, giving us access to carriers and connectivity. By operating our own rack space in other key London locations, we are able to maintain end-to-end control over our systems.
The on-site storage facility at our new data centre has also seen advancements this week, with flooring reaching completion ahead of storage rack assembly.
As you can see, this week has seen a division of work across 3 sites, making for a very busy period in terms of physical work and planning / orchestration.
