Data centre provider Global Technical Realty is to establish a major data centre campus in Slough following an agreement with Segro.
GTR, which is backed by US-based investor KKR – will take a 400,711 sq ft (37,227 sq m) space for a 25-year term to operate bespoke data centres for high-growth global technology companies.
The facility will support growing demand for third-party data centre provision.
SEGRO will design and develop the site to GTR’s requirements. It will comprise three independent data centres capable of operating individually, or as one interlinked campus.
The development will be built in two phases and should be fully operational by Q4 2022. The first phase will provide 132,575 sq ft of space. The second phase of 268,136 sq ft could start early in 2022.
The project is expected to create around 200 jobs during construction and a further 80 permanent roles on completion.
“The data centre space is a fast moving one. GTR was established to support its customers in providing a data centre solution wherever in the world there is the demand for it. We are delighted that the UK will become home to our flagship concept,” said GTR CEO Franek Sodzawiczny.
