We have successfully renewed our Cyber Essentials Plus certification for the whole organisation.
Cyber Essentials Plus is currently a minimum requirement when bidding for public contracts and will soon become a standard across the UK.
The scheme is available at two levels and designed for all sizes of organisation:
• Cyber Essentials: an independently verified self-assessment. Organisations assess themselves against five basic security controls and a qualified assessor verifies the information provided.

'Women of the Year' Awards Sponsored by Bouygues Energies & Services
This week, we sponsored the annual Women of the Year Lunch and Awards at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London. The day celebrates the most outstanding women from all over the UK and gives a space for women to meet one another and be inspired.
Bouygues Energies & Services are Exhibiting at this year’s DCD Event, 5 -6th November 2019, Old Billingsgate, London.
DCD>London is Europe’s most in-depth and longest running conferences dedicated to the data centre and cloud infrastructure industry. An event that explores the full on-premise /off-premise infrastructure ecosystem, from enterprise to hyperscale, and colocation to edge.
As part of his IWFM Leader of the Year award, David Carr hosted a thought leadership debate with his fellow experts in the industry. The conclusions of the debate have been collated into a report.
Bouygues Energies & Services is delighted to announce they have successfully completed the design and build of the VIRTUS LONDON5 Data Centre. VIRTUS is the fastest growing Data Centre provider in the UK.
VIRTUS LONDON5 data centre is part of the impressive VIRTUS Stockley Park Campus. The facility offers efficient, agile and flexible infrastructure comprising of over 10,000m² of IT technical data space and delivering 24MW of a total IT load. The facility is the first of four data centre facilities that will see the creation of VIRTUS’s first Hyper-scale campus.
Why are we encouraging our teams to use social media?
Bouygues Energies & Services are pleased to announce they are supporting DATACENTRE.ME!
DATACENTRE.ME host a Data centre networking event - a simple concept. Meet fellow data centre professionals, talk about the latest data centre news & most importantly, create connections. These business connections can be excellent for selling your services/products, recommendations & keeping track of the latest news - something that is vital for any company in the data centre industry. This is an exclusive invite-only, end user event.
Highly secure and reliable facilities for Interxion, Marseille
Interxion is a leading provider of carrier and cloud-neutral colocation data centre services, with over 45 data centres across Europe. Specialising in energy efficient, network security and scalable facilities, Interxion required a new data centre in Marseille that would match their capacity for high-specification infrastructure of mission critical It systems.
net technical space
The new data centre was to be located in the very centre of Marseille, in close proximity to public transport for improved accessibility. The 6200m² facility also needed to be designed to allow maintenance operations with no impact on service.
Bouygues Energies & Services were appointed as the design & build partner for this project. Our solution included a 6200m² facility with 16 MW dual grid connection, 2N+1 UPS redundancy and up to 99.999% availability SLA.
The data centre was designed with dual fibre entry to the building, providing access to more than 13 connectivity providers and direct access to France-XI, DE-CIX and NL IX internet exchanges. Our offer included the fit out of cabinets, cages and private rooms, as well as extensive security capabilities.
We installed advanced fire detection and suppression systems, including very early smoke detection apparatus (VESDA) and an inert gas fire suppression system to ensure business continuity. Our security provisions included CCTV, proximity cards and biometric entry, as well as optimal detectors positioned at regular intervals across the technical spaces. We implemented environmental controls to ensure optimised energy efficiency by installing chillers, cooling towers and cabinets in cold aisle containment. So, that the facility may be operated far beyond the industry minimum standards for energy.

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.
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.
