Data Centre Demand in UAE Set to Soar: Datalec’s Design, Supply, Build and Managed Services Empower Regional Growth

Datalec Precision Installations (DPI), a provider of world-class data centre design, supply, build and managed services to deliver seamless, integrated and unified end-to-end solutions for data centre operators, announces it has incorporated a United Arab Emirates (UAE) subsidiary as a part of its continued international expansion. Headquartered in the UK, Datalec now has subsidiaries in 15 other countries.

Sean Christie, Projects Director for Datalec in the Middle East shares, “With substantial digital infrastructure investment underway, the region represents a great development opportunity for Datalec. The UAE incorporation marks the first step in a wider Datalec GCC delivery model for our clients and I’m delighted to be leading this new venture.”

For Datalec, the Middle East is a focus for natural expansion owing to its substantial and growing data centre market size, which is anticipated to attract USD 6.73 Billion investment by 2027*. With increasing demand for its services from clients within the UAE, Datalec is proud to offer capabilities and services equal to those available across the Datalec Group.

Although Datalec was originally founded in white space construction and fitout, over the past 11 years the business has substantially developed its portfolio including the provision of a full range of technical, maintenance and, more recently, critical environment cleaning services, through Datalec’s acquisition of Technivo in late 2022.

Furthermore, working throughout Europe for a wide range of customers requires careful risk management. Having recently been presented with an International Safety Award (Distinction) for protecting its employees from the risk of injury and ill health at work, Datalec will continue to provideappropriately trained supervisors and managers to each construction project with tried, tested and approved PPE and equipment suppliers and a training provider partnership. The company’s dedicated team of in-house Health and Safety professionals have over 60 years combined experience, and this is integral to ensure the health and safety of its people and its customers’ people. Health and Safety is central to Datalec’s core values where ‘Health is our mission, safety is critical.’

Datalec also plans to localise its well-established manufacturing services in this region in the near future. An investment in an Aisle Containment Caging Solutions (ACCS) construction and fabrication facility is further evidence of Datalec’s continued commitment of reinvestment and the UAE.
