Two-tier Mezzanine Floor, Kent

Following a number of site visits and discussions to understand the client’s requirements, DMA was awarded the contract  by Custodian Data Centres to supply and install a two-tier mezzanine floor to house their new infrastructure of servers. The design involved steel supports for a number of apertures within the floor space to allow for a cooling system to be installed once the floor was constructed.

The site was previously used as a TV studio and had sufficient headroom to install a two-tier mezzanine comprising of 186m² per level, thus allowing maximum utilization of the available footprint. Due to the high point loads being transferred through the supporting columns of the mezzanine structure, the floor slab was piled in the areas under the columns.

The clients own contractors stripped out the studio and constructed new access points. Once this was completed, the floor was piled in the specified areas and the area was ready for the installation of the mezzanine floor. The structure was completed within a week and handed over to Custodian for their contractors to install the new servers and cooling systems.
