Next Generation Data (NGD) has announced the build out of an additional 250,000 sq ft of capacity at its mega data centre campus near Cardiff, South Wales. This follows a spate of new customer contracts worth in excess of ?125 Million over the next five years including agreements with several Fortune 100 companies.
Construction work is already underway on NGD’s top floor to accommodate the new private and shared data halls. The scale and complexity of the project requires more than 500 construction workers to be permanently on site, creating further substantial employment for locally based contractor firms.
Commented Simon Taylor, NGD’s Chairman: “Our latest long term contract successes demonstrate how major multinationals continue to find NGD’s UK-based world class facility unbeatable on price and performance, especially when it comes to our space, power, connectivity and 100 per cent service level record. NGD’s industry leading 16 week build out timescales and the financial resources of our funding partner Infravia Capital Partners are enabling us to respond extremely quickly to global market opportunities.”
Added Phil Smith, NGD’s Construction Director, recently joined from global construction engineering firm Spie: “NGD’s 750,000 sq ft multi-tier facility has already reached 30% occupancy with 31 data halls but we still have abundant space and power available to future proof customer requirements as well as soak up new business demand. The largely pillar-free top floor is ideal for a variety of scalable data hall designs including private and shared facilities.”
