Building Better Healthcare Awards

We are delighted to be attending the BBH awards on 4th November at The Brewery in central London. The awards include a large number of categories with many worthy entrants. We are short listed for the Sustainable Development award for our data centre at Northampton NHS Trust.

This award will be presented to an exemplary new-build or refurbishment project that aims to reduce the carbon impact of healthcare services and construction. The judges will be looking for a facility that is already fully operational and makes a significant contribution to reducing the carbon footprint of the NHS and private healthcare sector. Projects must represent a wide-reaching and measurable reduction in carbon emissions and enhance sustainability.

Many of our data centres are built or refurbished specifically with the purpose of reducing an organisations carbon footprint and our NHS clients are leading the way in many areas of energy efficiency and sustainability.

We look forward to meeting many of our clients and colleagues at the event and celebrating the Building Better Healthcare awards.


SMBC Data Centre Finising Touches

A great day with the team at Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council today. The entrance to the new DC is now complete including a fire alarm and vesda panels, all connected directly to the main civic centre. Our cold aisle containment units are also ready for action. In the run up to handover on Monday 19th October, the data centre will be cleaned by a specialist data centre cleaning company to ensure any remaining building material particles are not left to cause any damage to new equipment.We hope that SMBC like their new DC!IMG_1043 IMG_1046 IMG_1044
