Established in 2001, AO.com is the UK’s largest online retailer of household appliances and currently has a product range of approximately 4,000 items. In 2014, AO floated on the London Stock Exchange and launched AO.de, which is based in Germany. It continued its European expansion with a new launch in the Netherlands in 2016.
AO World was looking to invest in supporting its growth with key infrastructure upgrades at the company’s new Headquarters in Bolton.
The project brief involved the construction of a new data centre facility on the third floor of the Parklands building.
The proposal was based on a Tier II data centre design and utilises highly efficient DX cooling systems that are able to offer a potential annualised PUE of circa 1.39.
