DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM:

GPX Global Systems builds and operates private, carrier-neutral Internet Exchanges (IX’s) and Internet Data Centers (IDC’s) in emerging, commercial markets. The company offers a world-class, carrier-neutral collocation infrastructure, and environment to clients seeking to broaden their exposure and growth into new lucrative emerging global markets. GPX operates datacenters for many Global 2000 Enterprise and Carrier clients, including Citigroup, JP Morgan, Exxon Mobil, ABM Amro, Microsoft, eBay, AOL, Google, Sprint, MCI, SBC, Deutsche Telecom, France Telecom, and many others.
One of GPX’s three gateway hubs is present in Mumbai. This hub is used by GPX’s global clients and business continuity is their chief concern. GPX Indian facility is an energy-efficient, green building certified by LEED and was a winner of the 2010 CRISIL-CREDAI Real Estate Award for ‘Most Innovative Building Design’.
The structure “Boomerang”, a 1.2 million sq ft complex at Chandivali Farm Road in Mumbai, the country’s largest single project floor plate for commercial utility. 
The clients approached Sunanda’s Concrete Materials Consultancy Division, to provide a guaranteed and waterproof structure for housing their critical servers and associated IT infrastructure. This site was especially complicated due to the large floor plate of 40000 square feet. 

Initial pond test uncovered a large number of leakages in the slab which were immediate points of concern for the clients whose topmost business priority was “continuous operations with zero unplanned downtime”. 

A step-by-step analysis was carried out by Sunanda’s Concrete Materials consultancy Division, presented to the clients, approved by their International Consultants, Archway Global Systems as well as their domestic consultants, Exigo International.
