Hermes Real Estate Investment Management Limited (HREIML) and GCE Data Centres announce the launch of two new data centres in Bracknell and Perivale. HREIML and GCE Data Centres have combined their expertise in commercial property development to provide potential occupiers with a data centre solution that offers flexibility and independence.
Gary Lees MD of GCE Data Centres said, “We are encouraged by the strong interest shown in both sites even at this pre-launch stage. This is a new style of offer to the market, a powered shell that can accommodate modular or traditional data centre configurations. Our approach allows maximum flexibility to occupiers seeking a powered shell solution where the independence and security of controlling the facility is important rather than taking space in a managed data centre building”.
Bracknell, a 3.2 acre site, has planning consent to develop a data centre of 78,000sq ft (35,000sq ft of net technical space) and has 10 MVA of power already purchased. The completed building can be delivered by Q2 2013.
Perivale, a 1.7 acre site, has planning consent for a 30,000 sq ft data centre (15,000 sq ft of net technical space) and 6MVA of power has been purchased for delivery to the site in Q1 of 2013. This building can be delivered by Q1 2103.
Jones Lang LaSalle and GVA Connect are joint sole letting agents.
