The contractor has secured a contract to construct a second 30 MW data centre in Slough for client Yondr 

ISG is already on site at the new 100 MW data centre campus development, closing in on completion of the first of three planned multi-storey data centre buildings in early 2024.   

The second phase will see the contractor build an identical three-storey 30 MW facility at the campus, with full handover expected in 2025.    

Scope of works across both phases also includes ancillary buildings and structures, the main entrance gatehouse, external plant compounds, a site-wide substation, mechanical yard and associated infrastructure.   

It is understood to be the largest construction project currently underway in Slough. 

“The latest advancements in AI have further added to the exponential demand for shared applications and data, which is driving a race for space within this critical national infrastructure sector,” said Daniel Priest, ISG’s director for data centres. 

“Our ability to deliver highly technical space at pace, and with a critical focus on quality and innovation are important factors driving repeat relationships in this sector, creating significant value and opportunity across our supply chain and within communities and the regional economy.”
