Teledata, a premium colocation, cloud hosting and data centre services provider based in Manchester, has appointed Keysource as the lead contractor for the design and preconstruction of its new 30,000 sq ft data centre facility (MCR2) which has been funded by UBS. In addition, the critical environment and data centre specialist will also be responsible for delivering ambitious sustainability goals following the calculation of the ‘whole life carbon’ of the facility and a stage 2 carbon assessment which has informed the design.
The project, which leverages existing planning permission, involves a combined design and planning application to ensure local regeneration goals are integrated, including design development past ‘RIBA 2’. Keysource is also harnessing the power of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to lead the design process to provide high performing, resilient and efficient solutions. This will include ensuring that the available site power capacity and available space to increase rack count capacity is maximised, delivering an annualised PUE of less than 1.15 for this.
“To support the major regeneration of the area this an opportunity to deliver a data centre which can differentiate itself within a competitive market through site architecture and design which delivers a high quality and commercially competitive services, whilst delivering local, company and funder ESG goals. This forms the basis of our approach.”
Jon Healy, Operations Director at Keysource
“At Teledata we are committed to delivering the highest levels of service and support and the quality of our data centre estate is absolutely key. This new facility will be best in class in terms of resilience, security and sustainability and we know that we can rely on Keysource to deliver this.”
