Total floor area

The new, complementary structure needed to include almost 10,000m² of client space, with a total floor area of 16,400m² spread over 7 floors, including 2 basements.

Service Solutions

Working as part of a construction consortium, Bouygues Energies & Services carried out the Mechanical & Electrical works for the delivery of this project. The first phase of the project included the completion of the electrical and mechanical installation on four levels of client space, as well as all technical rooms, and HV/LV risers.

Our solution included the following environmental controls air conditioning of all client spaces, technical rooms through approximately 200 Computer Room Air Conditioning Units (CRACs) and the complete chilled water supply and distribution via 15 chillers, 8 of which were installed as part of phase 1.

We also installed six 2900kVA generators as a back up power supply to general services and chillers, as well as BMS control for all technical systems, fire detection, inert gas fire suppression systems, access control and intrusion alarms to maximise network security, resilience and business continuity.
