Major names within the data centres market are turning to Projex to deliver an increasing number of high value business critical projects as the industry continues to experience major growth in the race to connect the world’s leading businesses to their customers, employees and partners inside the most interconnected data centres.
The latest forecasts estimate that by 2025, data centres across the globe are projected to consume as much as 20% of the world’s power with cities such as Amsterdam bracing themselves for as much as two million sq ft of new data centre construction*.
The UK is also seeing massive growth opportunities and increased competition for global domination according to Projex director, Paul O’Callaghan:
“Knowledge and experience in this sector are more critical than ever with clients needing experienced construction teams that can take full responsibility for programme delivery of multiple related projects and entire processes, particularly involving critical environments. Projex provides a full tailor-made service that hits the ground running thanks to our extensive experience.”
Recent project wins include multiple data hall fit outs, chiller changeouts, installation of new chiller and cooling towers plus national critical infrastructure projects which have seen Projex make two new appointments at senior level.
Anthony Holman joins as senior project manager and has particular experience in the critical environment and data centre arenas within financial and corporate organisations. He was formerly group mobilisation/implementation manager for Pure Datacentres.
Projex has also appointed Peter Fahy as project manager. Peter brings over 25 years’ experience within the property and construction sectors including delivery of projects for BT and Lucent Technologies and is currently helping to deliver a number of schemes including HV and cooling infrastructure upgrades.
They join a specialist team providing full PM, QS, EA and PD services for data centres, including:
- Management of design consultants and engineers
- On-site contractor management
- Chairing and project status reporting for contractor project meetings
- Data centre and mission critical project management
