About the project
Datum Datacentres, the leading provider of data centre and co-location services, engaged Keysource to provide pre-construction services for the first floor data centre construction at its site on the Cody Technology Park, Farnborough.
This initial service enabled Datum to develop a detailed specification and required delivery methodology for the construction phase.
Keysource started the project by undertaking a needs analysis with Datum which established a detailed brief and performance specification for stakeholder agreement and senior level approval.
The next stage was to develop concept solutions to meet the brief, including associated commercial, technical and delivery related considerations and identifying risk.
Finally, Keysource developed the preferred design, construction phase plan and commercial schedules.
Importantly this pre-construction service evaluated different approaches to deliver the required performance specification giving Datum the ability to mitigate risk associated with the project whilst having the flexibility to make commercial decisions through the process.
