I noted the space is for "supercomputadora i instal.lacions" ...
instal.lacions can mean anything from actual electronics doing
calculations to air vents to cabling and so forth.

I wouldn't worry too much about noise. Roman architecture tends toward 
solid, thick walls, unlike Gothic. They will just program cluster downtime
for the 2-3 occasions a year when anyone will actually use the chapel.
