PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Design Engineer for the creation of 2400m2, three hall data centre extension of a live facility plus external critical plant spaces. This was based on new innovative principle of prototype modular units which allowed for quick future expansion with no interruption to critical services.

The very tight site constraints were a challenge particularly working around live HV and fibre services, and the ground conditions lead to a solution utilising a combination of ground improvement and CFA piles to minimise the risk of excessive vibration within the existing building.
