London Central Build Blog – Week 48

With the final elements of the facility wide containment systems now finalised, we can run headlong into the final stage of the project, which will involve running cabling, commissioning the power and network, and final testing. With all being well we are hoping to welcome existing and pre-sale customers into the new site very soon, with absolute finalisation to follow (smaller ancillary works such as signage, finishing touches, etc).
