Node 4


PROJECT

Size: 60,000 sq ft

Value: £1.4

Duration: 22 weeks

Project: New Data Centre

Contract: JCT Design & Build Contract

 


KEY DELIVERABLES

Conversion of a building that was originally home to a double glazing manufacturer & storage facility, into a high-tech and secure data centre.

 


OBJECTIVE

Construction of a new office development complete with one hour fire separation between the office space and the warehouse.

Key to the project was the creation of an environmentally controlled box which formed the data centre itself. Due to the nature of the project the data centre required complex fire, security and leak detection systems to be installed as Node 4 were contractually bound to provide capability to a number of financial institutions. Failure in providing this would result in being liable for six figure damages.
