Gammon scoops £139m contract to build a data centre in Singapore

Gammon Pte. Limited, a subsidiary of Gammon Construction Limited, has been awarded a data centre project in Singapore for Global Switch, a leading owner, operator and developer of large-scale, carrier and cloud neutral, multi-tenanted data centres across Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Located in the Woodlands area of Singapore, the data centre will comprise a six-storey precast structure containing ten data suites and infrastructure. It will be built to achieve LEED Gold and Greenmark Platinum Standards utilising Building Information Modelling (BIM) through design development, construction, operation and maintenance. The data centre is due to launch later this year.

Global Switch’s Singapore Woodlands data centre is the first project in the island state to adopt prefabricated mechanical and electrical and plumbing (MEP) modular techniques on a large scale. Gammon are assembling over 60% of the MEP works off-site and also over 70% of the structure was precast off-site. This method of manufacturing elements off-site has multiple benefits including increased productivity, safety and quality.

Thomas Ho, Chief Executive of Gammon, said: “This project which will increase our portfolio of significant projects in Singapore, is another opportunity to showcase our expertise in modern construction techniques and delivery. Our continued successful completion of projects in Singapore enhances our customers’ confidence in our expertise.”
