Case Study

An International Bank

Client:

An International Bank

Project:

Construction of 2 new Data Centres

Scale:

£180m

Role:

Data Centre Build Programme Manager and ‘Professional’ Client

Description:

DJWA was approached to operate as an informed and knowledgeable Client, representing an Internatonal Bank with regard to the overall development process for its data centre role out programme.

We were instructed to specifically focus on the design, procurement, construction, engineering and commissioning of the date centres from inception to completion and final occupation.

DJWA’s primary role as ‘professional’ Client was to utilize our longstanding industry experience with our comprehensive design and construction expertise to provide assurance to the Programme Manager and GRCBT leadership that the projects would meet agreed business plan requirements and be delivered as initially planned.

DJWA’s initial task was to undertake a review of the bank’s proposals to erect four new data centre buildings together with a dedicated power centre. On advice from DJWA this plan was shelved saving the company several hundreds of millions of pounds.
