Restructuring the Boulevard Voltaire site in Paris
Cap Ingelec was hired by Telehouse for the restructuring of the ground floor of its Boulevard Voltaire site in Paris.
Telehouse decided to restructure its Boulevard Voltaire site in Paris to free up space and increase its hosting capacities. It hired Cap Ingelec to provide a turn-key operation design-build (preparation, main structure and finishing works, climate-control, and ventilation). In order to accomplish this, it was necessary to create an office area to host 3 departments including security agents and to transform the Security PC into a 180m² IT room having an IT power of 170 kW.
In order to equip the room with a maximum number of IT bays, Cap Ingelec proposed standard urbanization (a false-floor and re-design of the general ambiance) and the installation of 4 IT islands built around a confined cold aisle.
A market leader since 1988, today, Telehouse is one of the largest global suppliers of datacenters. The company has 46 sites located in various continents. With more than 7,000 m², Telehouse Paris Voltaire is one of the largest datacenters in intramuros Paris. Hosting a large number of telecommunications operators, the site constitutes a central hub for 80% of the direct Internet traffic in France!
