Critical infrastructure specialist, Sudlows, has been awarded the contract to deliver a new state-of-the-art data centre for digital firm Indectron, which will provide highly secure colocation for a range of organisations. Following a competitive tender, Sudlows were appointed to design and build the new 3MW power capacity data centre in Gloucester. The centre will be used as a protected environment for data and critical systems connected with a wide range of networks and cloud service providers.
Shield House is positioned directly on the UK’s arterial fibre routes in an area that is fast developing into the cyber-security hub of the United Kingdom. The facility’s intelligent design will deliver enhanced environmental efficiencies and perfectly support high density computing.
Andrew Bence, managing director at Indectron, said: “Sudlows impressed the team here at Indectron and won our tender because they went above and beyond the requirements of the tender process. Sudlows depth of experience and commitment to going the ‘extra mile’ was immediately evident within their highly detailed proposal.
“The team at Sudlows provided several viable alternative options with substantive vendor assessment and rigorous technology selection that demonstrated outstanding value-add to the new facility and to our current and future customers.”
Andy Hirst, technical director at Sudlows, added: “This is an outstanding facility that utilises the very best energy efficient technology. We are committed to providing the best energy efficient and resilient critical environments and this is reflected in the range of organisations this new facility will serve.”
The Shield House facility is expected to be completed in late 2017.
