XYZ’s inspection focused on the HAC legs—vital components to support busbars and containment systems in data halls—discovering them to be misaligned with offsets and rotations. If left unaddressed, these deviations would have led to costly additional labor, material overruns and major delays.
Due to the Atom's early detection, immediate information was relayed to the contractor and onsite supervisors, enabling swift corrective action to be taken. This not only resolved the issue throughout the entire room, but also resulted in significant cost avoidance by preventing further complications. Tolerances around this area are crucial, and it is not unknown for the tolerance allowances to be tighter than is generally allowed in the relevant material specifications for construction. A conservative cost avoidance estimate for a worst-case scenario amounted to €159,680.
