Huntingwood Data Centre
The $400 million Huntingwood Data Centre is located on Huntingwood Drive, in Huntingwood. The project involved the construction of a two-storey, concrete panel data centre building, plus, on-grade carparking, with three-storey office buildings at each end of the data centre facility. The structure has maximum building loads of 4.5MN, which required the footings to be founded in strong shale bedrock.
ACT Geotechnical Engineers conducted a preliminary geotechnical investigation to establish the subsurface conditions including the presence of fill and depth to bedrock. After establishing the presence of shallow bedrock, a more detailed cored borehole investigation was conducted to determine the strength and weathering of the bedrock.
