Telehouse West Data Centre Docklands, London by YRM

  • Comment

Telehouse West is the latest building on Telehouse’s YRM-designed Data Centre Campus in London’s Docklands. The eight-storey, £80 million facility provides 5,000m² of technical space on five tenant floors with resilient, diverse power and cooling, backed up by emergency power generators accommodated in a linked two-storey building

The structure comprises a steel frame with precast concrete floor slabs and structural topping for 15kN/m² loading. The external envelope has storey-height unitised cladding elements suspended from the floor-slab edge finished with silver folded aluminium composite rainscreen panels with a pixellated pattern of darker panels on stair cores at each end of the building.

Telehouse West is the first data centre development in central London to obtain GLA approval, meeting stringent sustainability criteria set by the government’s Carbon Reduction Commitment, by making available free waste heat at the site boundary for community use.
Lisa Torje, architect, YRM.
