Pushing back the flood

July 15, 2016

8 Solutions, the leading provider of specialist technical cleaning and data centre services across EMEA, has just completed a significant restoration project for a data centre in Leeds damaged by flooding earlier in the year when the River Aire broke her banks.

8 Solutions team of highly trained technicians worked tirelessly to bring the data centre back to its former glory. It was a major undertaking to clean every inch of the two buildings which were live and operational, especially considering the flood water was more than a metre deep in some areas. In addition to the cleaning works, 8 Solutions assessed the integrity of the raised access floors, which were heavily saturated and bowing significantly.

8 Solutions were engaged to replace the floor and install reinforcing and bracing under racks and frames where the panels were trapped and couldn’t be removed. 8 Solutions put together a detailed phased programme and hit every milestone and once again delivered a fantastic result.

Our client couldn’t be happier says Mike Meyer, Sales Director at 8 Solutions. We continue to deliver complex remediation projects across EMEA and this further cements our status as the ‘go-to’ company for technical cleaning, contamination assessment and raised access flooring.
