Builders Clean – Equinix Data Centre

Preparing for the big reveal

Equinix’s new 86,000 square foot LD6 data centre in Slough was set to be the most advanced building of its type in the UK. However, getting the building ready for opening day takes more than just a simple spring clean.


The Challenge:

When a building is being constructed to the size and specification of LD6, there is no room for compromise. The space must be presented to ensure maximum impact for employees and customers alike. With a tight timeframe for delivery of only a matter of weeks, and ongoing building activities to be negotiated, Equinix needed a team of professionals to ensure a high quality builders clean.


The Solution:

Over a two week period, a team of 25 cleaning operatives worked day and night to ensure the completion of a full internal deep clean. The builders clean including surfaces, carpets, ceilings and lighting fixtures as well as the scrubbing, sealing and polishing of internal hard flooring. The clean extended to the external façade, with all glass and cladding and even the car park getting the Stadium Support Services treatment.


The Outcome:

Move day has been and gone with all teams now in their new high-tech home.
