Our offered Services

Colocation Advisory

We will review the design level and performance specification provided by the facility owner, operator, and/or agent. We assess through a gap analysis against the competition the specification and Tier levels, where applicable, along with a design and operational risk assessment. We also assess the economic lifecycle of the data center providing both estimated timeline and value of remediation or replacement requirements and we will provide an opinion on the ability for the facility to meet contractual service levels and efficiency levels.

Strategy & Business Case Creation

The data centre landscape is a dynamic and ever-evolving space. Our team of specialists leverages market intelligence and data-driven analysis to identify lucrative investment opportunities aligned with your specific goals and risk tolerance. We work collaboratively with you to develop a compelling business case that secures stakeholder buy-in and lays the foundation for successful investment.

Edge Data Centre Strategy & Transaction Management

The rise of Edge computing, 5G, and the Internet of Things (IoT) presents exciting investment opportunities and a new approach to data centre investment. Our expertise extends to edge data centres, digital community hubs, and distributed data environments. We identify prime locations with high connectivity and growth potential, ensuring your investments are positioned for long-term success. We manage the entire transaction process, from initial negotiations to seamless deal execution, mitigating risks and ensuring a successful outcome.

Commercial Due Dilligence

Mitigate risks and validate investment opportunities through our rigorous commercial due diligence process. We analyse financial projections, assess the competitive landscape, and evaluate key operational factors, providing you with a thorough understanding of the risks and opportunities associated with your investment.

Technical Due Dilligence

Much like commercial due diligence, technical due diligence service aims to highlight any potential risks and threats to your project, with a focus on auditing and aligning technical capabilities with their intended use. We will also identify technical optimisation and cost optimisation opportunities.

Investor Confidence Through Expert LTA Services

Keysource empowers financial institutions and investors with comprehensive Lender Technical Advisor (LTA) services for data centre projects, and beyond. Our experienced team acts as your independent advisor, identifying potential risks that could impact project viability or project execution. We then provide strategic recommendations to mitigate these risks and ensure project success.

Our comprehensive LTA services encompass the following key phases, with additional reporting tailored to your specific needs:


Full Project Site Due Diligence


Review borrower’s chosen location: We thoroughly assess the proposed data centre site, including its design, configuration, and layout.

Pre-contractual understanding: This initial report ensures both you and the LTA have a clear understanding of the project site before finalising loan agreements.






Capital Expenditure (Capex) Review


We analyse the borrower’s construction program and budget, ensuring alignment with the project’s Request for Proposal (RFP) timeline and feasibility.

Customer Contract Alignment: We verify that the borrower’s customer contracts align with the agreed-upon terms and conditions.

Facility Design Verification: We review the facility design details, including permits and licenses, to ensure compliance.




Ongoing Monitoring and Reporting

Cost Control and Reporting: We provide ongoing cost monitoring and reporting, keeping you informed of project expenditures.
Construction Progress Tracking: Our team closely monitors the construction progress, identifying and reporting on any potential delays or issues.
Final Closing Report: Upon project completion, Keysource delivers a comprehensive final closing report, summarizing all aspects of the project.

Keysource boasts a successful history of identifying and mitigating risks across various project types, not just data centres. Our team’s deep industry knowledge ensures you receive informed and reliable guidance throughout the entire project lifecycle.
