UK-based construction consultancy Concert has completed Phases 1 and 2 of Hong Kong-based China Mobile's first data centre outside Asia in England.
 
The company said in a statement that the 10 megawatt data centre is located in Slough.
 
Concert looked into the feasibility of the site, supported the negotiations on the agreement for lease as part of the diligence team, and liaised closely with both the developer, China Mobile’s technical team and appointed design team to ensure the successful implementation of the scheme, the press statement said.
 
The due diligence support included reviewing the lease’s technical documents, the landlord’s shell design and budgeting the tenant specific changes including introducing a mezzanine floor, to ensure the building was fit for China Mobile’s requirements at the market price.
 
Daniel Wright, Director at Concert said: “This was a gold standard for China Mobile Internatinal and we successfully achieved all of their KPIs, completing the design and delivery needed to support this client in a completely different market with different types of contracting arrangements.”
 
Jack Ke, Data Centre Manager, Europe, China Mobile International, said: “We were very pleased with the experience and performance of the Concert team. Their professionalism and expertise gave us confidence and we look forward to working with Concert again in the UK and other regions.”
 
CMI has expanded its footprint in 36 countries and regions including the UK.
