Watford Data Centre


Mercury were awarded the contract to provide the complete turnkey package including full design, Civil, structural, Architectural, Electrical, Mechanical, Structured Cabling and Fire Suppression systems. Particular challenges on this project were space related.

All of the Switchgear together with the UPS systems, Gas Bottle rooms and Pump rooms were housed externally from the building in purpose built containers on steelwork gantries due to all of the internal area being used for data centre space and offices.

The data centre project also involved underpinning the Building, considerable internal supporting steel work and a new roof. Mercury managed all of the Structural and Architectural elements of the data centre project in-house.
