Structural works in the first floor data hall are really taking shape now, with completion of the shell expected in the next two weeks. This will be a huge leap forwards in terms of site readiness, and will lead directly onto technical installations such as the cooling and fire suppression systems.
Our network technicians have also been hard at work pulling and terminating the structured cabling in the office / non-technical side of the facility.
