From a standing start in 2012, Datalec Precision Installations (DPI) has grown into a dynamic business that delivers high quality and cost effective design, supply, installation, commissioning capabilities and managed services to the demanding data centre sector.
One call, one team
Constantly in the pursuit of perfection, we are always looking at ways to better service our customers and are continuously innovating, improving and developing our portfolio.
In addition to our core data centre skills portfolio, we can also offer general construction and MEP services. We now match our fit out offering for data centre tenants with an infrastructure design and build capability for data centre landlords, to efficiently and effectively bridge the gap between the construction and operating environments.
The result is a ‘one call, one team’ solution for our customers. This is designed to deliver a seamless, integrated and unified end-to-end result.
Today, resourced without compromise and substantial enough to manage even the largest and most challenging projects, we haven’t forgotten our small company roots and ethos and still deliver an unrivalled proactive and personal service that provides agility, flexibility and adaptability.
DPI is renowned throughout the industry for our ‘can do, above and beyond’ approach, while our attention to the smallest detail ensures we can successfully implement the biggest data suite installations.
