Balfour Beatty JV wins £139m Singapore data centre

Balfour Beatty’s Far East JV has scooped a SD$253m (£139m) deal to build a major data centre in Singapore.

Gammon Construction, Balfour Beatty’s JV with Asian firm Jardine Matheson, was chosen by data firm Global Switch to build its Singapore Woodlands data centre in the north of the city state.

The project includes the construction of a six-storey precast structure containing 10 data suites.

More than 60 per cent of the M&E work will be assembled offsite, while over 70 per cent of the structure will be precast offsite.

Work on the centre is scheduled to begin later this year and will require 700 workers during peak construction.

The Global Switch deal is the latest major contract to be won by Gammon after it landed a HKD$4bn (£370m) contract to build three residential towers in Hong Kong earlier this month.

In January, the JV revealed it had won two infrastructure contracts in Hong Kong worth HKD$7.7bn (£705m).

These included a HKD$6.2bn (£568m) deal to construct a new highway in the region, and a HKD$1.5bn (£137m) basement extension and public infrastructure works package for a cultural quarter in the region.

Gammon chief executive Thomas Ho 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.”
