Mercury hits key deliverables on Interxion’s BRU4 Data Centre in Brussels
Mercury has recently hit a number of key deliverables on the BRU4 project, for our long-standing client, Interxion: A Digital Realty Company, in Brussels, Belgium.
This is Mercury’s first data centre project in Belgium as a prime contractor. Interxion’s BRU4 data centre is under development adjacent to their existing campus in Brussels and supports our client’s expansion in this region.
With the super-structure and roof topping-out now complete, internal fit-out has commenced, with MEP and CSA works taking place internally. The delivery of all major plant and equipment is due in the coming weeks.
As the prime contractor on this project, Mercury is delivering all external Civil, Structural & Architectural (CSA) works, in addition to the shell and core.
Our full scope of works on this project includes pre-construction services, design, manufacture, supply, installation, testing/commissioning and final handover to client.
The phasing of construction is based on continuous work packages, which will culminate with the delivery of a facility possessing 13.6MWs worth of IT power. Phase 1 consists of enabling works, Side Wide Work (SWW), Cold Dark Shell (CDS) and Power-Based Building (PBB). Phase 2 will contribute 6.8MWs of IT power, with Phase 2.2 adding a further 2.6MWs, and Phase 2.3 providing the final 4.2MWs of capacity for this facility.
Ronan McGrath, Business Unit Manager, said: “This is our first data centre project in this region, and we are very proud to be continuing our strong relationship with Interxion: A Digital Realty Company in Brussels and across Europe. Well done to the project team in achieving these most recent milestones.”
Other key Mercury personnel delivering the project include Alan Clinton, Managing Director of our Data Centres & Building Services Division, John Crawford, Operations Director, Darren O’Brien, Commercial Manager and Joe Walker, Project Manager.
