London Central Build Blog – Week 37

The flooring has taken shape this week, along with completion of the first two pod containment systems. We are now ready for a final deep clean and for racks to begin making their way up to the first floor data hall.

As you can see, things are progressing quickly, with many areas of the facility coming together simultaneously. This puts us in very good stead to have all assembly works completed within the next 3 to 4 weeks, leaving just the connections to bring the data centre to life ready for occupancy.
