Building the new UK flagship data centre

The challenge

Appointed by Crown House Technologies (CHT) on behalf of Equinix, our challenge was to design and construct the new UK flagship data centre, LD6: a detailed, technical build with a focus on sustainability and energy efficiency.

The approach

With many design and technical challenges to address, TTSP worked closely with Equinix and CHT across the project – from the interior architecture to the external envelope. Building on Stage E and Stage C drawings from the concept stage, we delivered designs and technical support, as well as a complete design and consultancy service for the striking front-of-house facility.

The result

This state-of-the-art facility, with two, four-storey wings, a linked office centre and logistics buildings sets the standard for all future data centres. Its innovative cooling system has achieved a LEED Gold Standard, while sustainable environmental control in the office uses night-time cooling, displacement ventilation and chilled beams.

“A significant challenge, aligning and connecting a 3 storey office building with a 4 storey data centre, with the office environment being both mixed mode and under individual control – gave rise to a unique design that embodies our Client’s brand”
