an over-the-top data center

pardon me for resurrecting this topic...

For sites that are built in caves, how do they deal with cabling ?

In the pretty pictures of the swedish site, there didn't seem to be an
obvious raised floor. And it appeared to be solid concrete floor between
the wings containing the systems. And no massive cable risers or
suspended cable paths.

It is all nice if neat, but in real life, wouldn't they need to be
stringing tons and tons of cable ?

Or it is a case of the pretty pictures with the fog having been taken
with empty racks, before the data centre was outfitted with real
equipment and now, there would be cables everywhere ?
