According to Mark Plant, CEO at 8 Solutions, the driving force behind this new division has been its customers. He explains, “We’ve had a 100% data centre and critical facility focus since our inception and have completed 90,000 cleans without incident. Over the last few months, many of our blue-chip and FTSE 100 clients who are currently using us as their sole data centre decontamination partner have been pushing for additional mechanical services. These areas of expertise are often a critical part of health and safety and building compliance.”
He continued, “Forming a new division dedicated to Mechanical Services was a natural progression for the business.”
The services offered by the Data Centre Healthcare Mechanical Services division provide a number of key benefits to clients believes Neil Sorrell. He explains, “Aside from providing fire protection, our Fire Walling Service also complies with Health & Safety ISO 9001, 4 Hour Fire Integrity BS 476 Pt20/22 and Building Regulations Compliance.”
Neil continued, “Other services such as floor strengthening carried out by a team with over 21 years of experience significantly increases the longevity of a data centre’s floor system, and the air flow design and thermal mapping service assists in reducing a company’s carbon footprint and eliminates hot spots and dead air wells, dramatically improving data centre performance.”
All 8 Solutions technicians undergo a rigorous training programme and receive regular update and refresher courses. The teams, which are all employed by the company, are fully vetted and security checked to BC level, with the majority being SC cleared. This offers a level of assurance to the trustworthiness and integrity of 8 Solutions technicians which has been fundamental to the company’s ability to work with some of the world’s most security sensitive organisations.
