PRESS RELEASE: CTS INT’Ltd, together with one of its prestigious data centre operator clients DigiPlex, has won the Data Centre Construction Award at the Datacloud Global Awards 2021.

The award recognises excellence in the construction of data centres, highlighting organisations that have overcome significant challenges in this crucial phase. CTS-INT’Ltd working for DigiPlex, created a joint entry to reflect the project works to build the second / third phases and a refit of an existing data hall within the phase 1 at the DigiPlex Fetsund Campus over 2020/21. Not only did the build take place over the winter months when temperatures fell to minus 20 degrees centigrade but at a time when there were significant challenges due to the COVID pandemic and also the Brexit restrictions.

These additional project challenges were addressed by the CTS-INT’Ltd Project Team working closely with DigiPlex to develop and propose innovative and ingenious ways to complete the entire construction with no disruption to the operational data centre already on site. Despite the challenges of building on a site of volcanic rock and silt, the team not only completed construction in under 8 months but were able to do so in a highly sustainable way.

The Datacloud Global Awards judging panel noted: “This was an outstanding entry detailing a construction project that took eight months to complete, taking place across the pandemic period. Adjacent to an existing operational data centre, the construction of this facility used less concrete and reused waste heat and rainwater.”

Phil Coutts, Chief Development Officer at DigiPlex. “Designing, building and operating sustainable, secure, and scalable data centre’s means paying attention to every detail, working with CTS Int’Ltd we know we have an expert team that shares our values.”

David Caddy Director of CTS-INT’Ltd, commented: “We are extremally pleased that our work with DigiPlex has been recognised globally with this award. We are also very proud of the work we did at Fetsund to overcome multiple challenges and deliver a cutting-edge facility on time. We look forward to our next projects with DigiPlex.”

“DigiPlex is one of our highly valued clients, and we are very extremely happy about this amazing collective win,”

The awards, held virtually on the first day of the Datacloud Global Congress, celebrate the best and brightest from across the data centre industry worldwide.
