London Central Build Blog – Week 34

This week has seen our cold corridor and cooling system build out progress dramatically, with sensor driven lighting system and cooling unit frameworks being installed, ready for the main coolers and ductwork to follow suit. We have also run new power feeds to the roller shutters for loading bay access.

Plenty of progress has been made this week, particularly with regards to the cooling system installation. From opening, there will be two cooling stacks online, totalling four wet boxes.  This gives 2N resilience on the cooling system for the two pods online from day one. Our modular design allows us to then liven up new stacks as required. Once both stacks are in their final positions, the duct work will be installed that will allow the stacks to feed the data hall.

We have taken some panoramic shots of the facility this week, something which we will be doing at regular intervals from here on out.
