The server room on the second floor of Goossens building will be renovated. This is necessary to upgrade the space and make it future-proof. The work will start on Monday, January 31.

On the first day of the renovation, a crane will lift an emergency cooling unit onto the roof of Goossens building. This will happen early in the morning to keep any inconvenience to a minimum.

On Monday, February 7, a start will be made with clearing the server room. The elevator in Koopmans building will be used to remove materials. This phase will last a week and will mainly be carried out in the early morning to limit noise nuisance.

About the renovation

As a result of the renovation, the size of the server room in Goossens will be halved. Less cooling capacity will be needed, making the new set-up more cost and energy-efficient. In addition, new infrastructure will be installed to make the facility future-proof.
