    Design & Build


    At Vantage Data Centers CWL1, we provide complimentary design services to help you design and layout your data centre. For customers who need a few racks of colocation, we can help plan cable routes, footprint layouts, connectivity solutions and optimise power densities and cooling. For customers seeking a bespoke data hall, we’ll work with you on every aspect of the design, space planning and fitment to create a dedicated space exactly to your specification. And for our largest customers, we will collaborate to give you hyperscale solutions top to bottom. In all cases, we can do as much or as little as you want, including modular designs, working with your people and your supply partners to design your ideal solution. Tell us about your project!


    For smaller colocation requirements, we always have pre-built space available, which can be shared colocation or can be sectioned off with fast build white walls. For larger requirements, our campus is built-to-order and has a permanently available construction team on site which is why we offer the fastest build lead times in the UK. Bespoke requirements can be custom fitted at the exact right time during the build, facilitating high levels of customisation. In both cases, we have the construction and fitment expertise to fulfil most customer requirements, big or small, to their exact desired specification.
