Ardmac were contracted on a trade package basis by our client in Middenmeer, The Netherlands, to deliver the architectural fit-out of a new design-and-build 30+ megawatt, 50,000-square-metre, hyper-scale, tier 4 data centre facility. We provided a full-time site team along with engineering support, and at peak times, up to 100 skilled operatives were required on site so that the project was completed to a high standard, within the agreed timeframe.
The architectural fit-out scope of the data halls included whitewall (45,000 square metres), walk-on ceilings (32,000 square metres), 132 hot aisle containment units, and 380 steel doorsets. Ardmac also completed the fit-out of the 2,000 square metres of office and support areas.
Particular attention was given to understanding and ensuring compliance with local building codes. This was especially important when considering the fire-rated walls, doors, and compartments on the project.
Fully coordinated BIM modelling was used during the design and construction phases. We also used modular and prefabricated design solutions to advance the construction process and help to deliver a complete scope of works ahead of schedule.
Our team, led by Project Director Sean Mullan, was awarded two consecutive ‘Contractor of the Month’ awards. Ardmac were judged on extensive criteria including safety, contract management, construction, environment, quality, and delivery.
