Bouygues Energies & Services were awarded the business critical project for the refurbishment of the existing live operational data centre and support areas.

The project comprised of the complete re-build of the data hall with fire rated walls and associated raised floor systems, along with the critical power supplies, electrical, mechanical/HVAC services and fire protection/leak detection systems.

The data centre electrical hardware configuration included new dual fed electrical power supplies, standby generators, main switch panels with dedicated UPS units and power distribution panels.

Bouygues Energies & Services’s in house data center experts were responsible for the turnkey design and build incorporating system integration testing to demonstrate system robustness and resilience.

The project was planned, delivered and executed in partnership with Airbus whilst the data centre had operational IT racks running throughout the project duration!
