The roof of the ground and first floor, which extends beyond the upper floors, provides space for cooling units. A plan of the data centre in quick house is below.

This building is a typical office to data centre conversion. Some ground floor windows have been replaced with louvres, while others are reflective. The building has high levels of security and low levels of signage and a large secure loading bay allows servers to be delivered.
