Expected impact
This is expected to be a rolling power down over this weekend and not a full building shutdown. As it happens this will impact the network, phones and possibly doors throughout the locations within the building. Data centres and the CSR should be considered "at risk". Doors may actually be okay if batteries hold up during the outages depending on length of time so should be considered at risk. No information supplied with specifics but this will be happening during the 14th and 15th of July. It is understood that estates have been engaging with relevant people.
