Optimum – Heathrow

Officially the hardest data centre in London to photograph the Optimum data centre is right at the end of an industrial estate in Hayes. The data centre is hidden behind the surrounding industrial buildings and access is blocked by large gates (click on the aerial view to open in Google maps).

This data centre is listed numerous times online and as you can see from the aerial view (below) the roof and alongside the building is covered in cooling units.

The building was converted from a distribution centre in 2000 according  to this planning application.
