Keysource shortlisted for Data Centre Solutions award

Mar 31, 2016 2:43:13 PM

Keysource has been shortlisted as a finalist the New Design / Build Data Centre Project of the Year category at this year’s Data Centre Solutions (DCS) Awards.

Entering with our client Jaguar Land Rover the judges were impressed by Keysource’s design and delivery of their new modular data centre. The innovative modular design solution meant that the bulk of the production and preparation for the data centre was completed off site, which significantly reduced costs and construction time. Typically a project of this nature would take at least 12 months from initial brief through design to project completion. However by delivering an end-to-end solution backed up by Keysource’s expertise in modular data centre deployments, this was reduced to under 5 months for the full project including design and delivery. The data centre also featured leading edge cooling technology to make it highly energy efficient.

The awards assessment panel thoroughly reviewed all entries for the awards before selecting the finalists, who now face a public vote. Voting opened on 21st March and will close on 22nd April and votes can be cast at

The awards are backed by Datacentre Solutions magazine, the official journal of the Datacentre Alliance. The DCS Awards will be announced at an evening event at the Grange St Paul’s Hotel in London on the 12th May.

Andy Hayes, Director, Keysource commented:

It’s great to have been chosen as finalist for our project with Jaguar Land Rover, and we hope to succeed in May following a good showing in previous DCS Awards. We hope lots of people will visit the website and vote!
