Permission Granted for London Data Centre

The new Gateway Data Centre has been announced in London’s West Thurrock, close to the M25 London Orbital motorway and the A13 road – giving easy access to London Docklands – the heart of the UK’s financial services district and with a very low latency connectivity into The City of London – the country’s financial heart.

Announced today by Charles Carden, a director of GVA Connect he said, “the 2.3 hectare site has been designed to have 8,000 square metres (86,000 sq ft) of data halls split over two floors and a gross internal floor area of 19,500 square metres (210,000 sq ft). Up to 47MVA of diverse power is available meaning the Gateway Data Centre is ideally suited to both normal density and High Density uses.”

Ideally suited for users in The City of London where access via diverse fibre routes has a very respectable round trip latency – estimated by fibre providers at between 0.19ms and 0.20ms.

Located within an existing industrial and trading estate, and an existing building, the new data centre can be rapidly delivered as either ‘Shell and Core’, as a ‘Fully Powered Shell’ or ‘Fully Fitted’ to customer requirements.

Full plans have been created for the conversion of the existing building including the building of a new mezzanine, new roof design, changes to elevations to the design shown in the featured graphic plus extensive external plant areas and a 3 metre security fence, vehicular access and vehicle lock, and all necessary planning consents were granted against these plans was granted on 3rd April 2013.
