Demolition work has begun in Godalming to make way for a £15m computer data centre, bringing a number of new IT jobs to the Catteshall Lane area. The development, which was granted planning permission in October 2009, will provide a space for companies to store their computer files and will offer 24-hour assistance for customers. The state-of-the-art glass and metal building will replace a long disused metalworks factory on the site, creating what the company responsible, Aegis Data Store, called a “future business”.
The data centre will cover 30,000 sq-ft and will be energy and carbon-efficient, using 30% less energy than conventional data centres.
