Ashfield Lane and TechRE are building Scotland’s largest ever data centre to help meet the country’s expanding data storage and processing needs.
The 93-acre Pyramids Data Centre in Bathgate, West Lothian is located on the M8 Motorway just outside Edinburgh. The facility will be developed in three phases and will provide 250,000 sq ft of flexible, modular space, with the potential to scale up to 500,000 sq ft.
Michael Hunter, associate director in Cushman & Wakefield’s Data Centre Advisory Group, said: “The market for storage, collaboration and information management tools is on an upward curve. The Pyramids is well placed to capture the increasing data storage, analytics and processing requirements that will come from an increase in adoption of cloud technology as well as the IoT and emerging technology such as connected cars.”
