An exciting day in the Global Technical Realty (GTR) journey as the company broke ground on its first 40.5 MW IT load UK data centre campus – GB One. GTR, a US$1 billion European build-to-suit data centre platform, agreed to lease the site at Slough Trading Estate, London’s premier data centre hub in June 2021, partnering with estate owner, SEGRO, which will be developing the building shell.

When complete, the campus will be one of the largest in the area, comprising three independent data centres capable of operating individually or as one interlinked facility. Each building will accommodate over 5,375 sq. m. of net technical area and 13.5 MW IT load. 

“The data centre sector is experiencing phenomenal growth and is evolving at a rate we’ve never seen before,” said Franek Sodzawiczny, Founder and CEO at Global Technical Realty. “GTR is in the unique position of having an equity capital commitment with KKR’s third global infrastructure fund. This gives us the flexibility to not only fund projects rapidly but to also offer continuity of support to our customers across multiple facilities and locations. We are motivated to get our first UK data centre up and operational and are delighted to be partnering with SEGRO to help achieve this.”
