Gallagher has been awarded the £1.2m contract to extend an existing Data Centre facility, constructing a 2 storey building which will house over £10m worth of hi-tech data recovery equipment. The work must be carried out in such a way that the existing operation is not disrupted.
The works involve a 2 storey UPS plant room and a single storey plant room building both of which are steel framed with steel sheet cladding. The buildings are constructed on raft foundations because of the complex ground conditions.
Gallagher will also be carrying out drainage, fencing, bases for generators, chillers and transformers, along with cable duct trenching.
Concrete and construction fill materials will be supplied by Gallagher Aggregates and excavated material will be taken to Gallagher’s licensed tip at Ryarsh.
