CASE STUDY: Data Centre Netherlands – Exterior

Project Overview



Main Contractor

Mace Construction





Project Details

The Data Centre is based in the Netherlands and serves as a central hub for a variety of digital business functions for large international clients.

AC Exteriors were tasked with taking on the mammoth roofing project by main contractor Mace, following impressive work on previous collaborations between the two companies. The gigantic area spanning a total of 21,000m² represented a challenge in itself due to the sheer scale, before factoring in adverse weather conditions in the notoriously windy country. Workers were buffeted with high speed gales and pelted with rain throughout the project, which had the potential to severely disrupt scheduling.

Fortunately, our experience in exterior projects meant that the work stayed on track with disruptions minimised. The initial programme was tight without factoring in the challenge of mother nature, yet the project was completed on time and to schedule- demonstrating why Mace were so keen to have the expertise of AC on board. Problems arising included pools of rainwater forming and transitional materials becoming damaged- issues unavoidable, but our strict following of health and safety guidelines, combined with years of experience meant the damage was ultimately inconsequential.

The full 21,000m² of Felt Roofing was installed to a high standard, leaving both main contractor and the client extremely happy with the finished work. Despite the testing conditions, it represented another high quality job completed by AC Exteriors.
