Project Description

Design and delivery of new data centre

We were appointed as architects to design a secure and robust new data centre for Tarmac in Buxton. We successfully bid in an open design competition and designed a building which would safely accommodate the high level of digital traffic required by Tarmac.

Key Features

  • We spent time establishing a clear client brief, as we needed to incorporate some specific security and data handling requirements.
  • Designing a very secure building and resilient to adverse weather conditions.
  • Identifying risks to the project, then innovating and mitigating risks. For example installing a unique second internal roof to provide an additional barrier to moisture penetration.
  • Low maintenance and low life cycle costs.
