Together we have built 110 Data Halls, to a total of 87MW and a 50,210㎡ footprint. During this time our technology and approach to construction has evolved, enabling us to provide some of the most socially responsible Data Centres in the world.

Delivered: On time; On budget

Every Data Hall and Energy Centre we deliver for Ark is designed and built here in the UK, then transported to site to be installed.

It is not only the way in which the Data Centres operate that provides sustainability benefits to Ark and their clients. The way in which we build them plays an equally critical part.

Ark and BladeRoom are committed to continuing our sustainability journey, providing benefits beyond those which our clients know well – sustainable construction methods, cutting-edge technology, free-cooling, and world-leading energy (PUE) and water use efficiencies (WUE).

Ark Data Centres

“Our BladeRoom relationship epitomises the dovetailed engagement that Ark enjoys with key alliance partners. Together we share the relentless pursuit of excellence, common cultures, social values and teams absolutely committed to the delivery of an exceptional customer experience.

“Working together since 2011, we developed a highly efficient data centre construction methodology with the bulk of the work completed off-site. This approach enables us to rapidly assemble and deliver quality assured, pre-tested products complete with electronic security, monitoring, bus-bar electrical distribution, clean earth, fire suppression and cable containment, ready for racks to roll in for a ‘plug and play’ fit-out.

“In short, we deliver fully integrated data centres with the lowest carbon emissions more efficiently than any of our competitors while simultaneously reducing build time and minimising waste.”

“We have worked in exclusive partnership with Ark for ten years, forming an extremely strong bond along the way. We are very likeminded businesses with the same agenda – to constantly develop a better solution for clients, not just in terms of sustainability, but a premium quality product.

“The world has an enormous reliance on data centres by the way people and businesses move and operate, with that trend ever growing. Extending our exclusive partnership signifies our joint commitment to a solution, creating a more sustainable digital future by providing the highest quality and most sustainable data centres available.

“I am immensely proud of what we have achieved together and look forward with anticipation to our upcoming projects.”
