Solution

This two-year project was delivered in London docklands on a site that was previously the East India Dock where ships unloaded their Victorian cargos. The infill and made up ground resulted in 69m deep concrete piles to support a massive multi-storey building with huge DC floor loadings.

Our roles as project director, strategic advisor and project managers involved the provision of board level campus strategy advice, project management and technical coordination of the consultant and Telehouse teams across all the expert disciplines. More than 600 operatives were deployed on site at the height of construction activity.

The world’s first multi storey mass air cooled data centre, Telehouse North Two has been launched into the worldwide data services network and helps power the UK digital economy and the rest of the world.

The design and construction of the project won the DCS Award: Data Centre Energy Efficiency Project of the Year and it was further shortlisted in a secondary category: New Design/Build Data Centre Project of the Year.
