Location:                                   826 Lorimer Street, Melbourne

FRS have recently wrapped up a fire spray project at Victoria’s largest state-of-the-art data centre.

Meticulous care with neat and tidy works were required throughout Stage 4 of this project. Working with Kapitol Group, we applied two hour fire spray to the structural steel of the new Level 1 sub-floor which is supporting computer flooring in the new data hall. We also protected the ground floor supporting brackets inside the data hall itself.

Located in Lorimer Street Melbourne, NEXTDC are an ASX200 technology company that builds and operates data centres that surpass industry benchmarks.

To protect their sophisticated computer systems and infrastructure, our client required exceptionally clean work methodologies that would minimise dust and other potential contaminants.

As passive fire specialists with a long and proud history within Victoria, we were able to demonstrate how we would be able to achieve their expectations and complete the project within their timelines.

We completed a successful project for our client and are proud to have been associated with this purpose built facility that delivers industry-leading reliability and technology to so many Australian businesses.
