Valero Case Study

Canary Wharf New Data Centre Facility

Itconstruct have been a retained contractor for the Chevron Texaco Group for a number of years and when the group became “Valero” and required a new data centre facility to be constructed at their Canary Wharf HQ we were the natural choice.

ITconstruct worked with the Valero Team to propose a facility solution that met their stringent requirements for resilience and quality. The nature of the Valero business (Oil Refinery and importation) meant that the facility had to be operational 24×7 and an overall strategy of two facilities (one at Canary Wharf and one in Pembroke South Wales was adopted. The facilities effectively run the 24×7 refinery operations and report back to Texas minute by minute on refinery operations.
The new data centre at Canary Wharf was to be located in a basement area and this presented a number of design obstacles that needed to be overcome.

Working closely with the Canary Wharf facilities team and the Valero Project Team we designed and built the new facility.
