He explains, “We’ve had a 100% data centre and critical facility focus since our inception and have completed 90,000 cleans without incident. Over the last few months, many of our blue-chip and FTSE 100 clients who are currently using us as their sole data centre decontamination partner have been pushing for additional mechanical services. These areas of expertise are often a critical part of health and safety and building compliance.”

He continued, “Forming a new division dedicated to Mechanical Services was a natural progression for the business.”

Neil added: “Other services such as floor strengthening carried out by a team with over 21 years of experience significantly increases the longevity of a data centre’s floor system, and the air flow design and thermal mapping service assists in reducing a company’s carbon footprint and eliminates hot spots and dead air wells, dramatically improving data centre performance.”
