Bytemark data centre build: 15 days later…

It’s been marginally over two weeks since the last data centre update, and progress has been swift. Upstairs has largely been completed, with barely more than a coat of paint in the way of us being able to take occupancy.

Downstairs, all the internal walls have been built and plastered, the cabling and containment in what will be the floor void is nearly there, lighting is complete, fire suppression pipework and gas vessels have been installed.

Fire Supression Pipework and tanks

Outside the land has been cleared, the shuttering is ready to pour concrete for the generator plinth, and the trenches are being dug for laying the duct work for our fibre connectivity.

Work is continuing at great pace, and we’ll have another update in the next two weeks.
