Data Centres

Data Centres are a key part of the infrastructure of modern commerce and demand continues to grow.

While Data Centres are fundamentally industrial buildings, they are highly functional and the design requirements are constantly changing. Our team of specialists understands these business-critical facilities and supports our clients through planning and environmental consent, design, construction and ongoing maintenance.

The data centre sector continues to grow quickly in terms of size, shape and complexity. Regulation, efficiency expectations, demand and cost are all increasing, development opportunities and availability of competent delivery teams are limited and optimal and often superior levels of both resilience and physical / digital security are expected.

Lysander’s entry into the data centre sector has been driven, to a degree by existing clients, as well as a belief that these challenges can be overcome through utilising a combination of our experiences from the logistics sectors together with our reliable and to some extent, disruptive construction services provision.

Our data centre sector specific improvement initiatives include:

  • Simplifying delivery
  • Integrating design standardisation
  • Accelerating design decision making
  • Cost effective sustainability
  • Overcoming regional variances

Lysander provides a full range of professional services to guide data centre and mission-critical projects through permitting, design, construction, operations and post-completion complexities. Our integrated multi-disciplinary services and dedicated director-led teams significantly reduce the risk to data centre owners and operators both during development as well as over the lifetime of the facility. Lysander typically provides construction services across 4 main functions:


  • End-to-end leadership across data centre projects and programmes
  • Utilising our suite of documents developed over the last 20 years
  • Interventions to reduce delays during the mobilisation of data centre projects


  • Accurate and detailed project controls through all stages of project delivery
  • Focus on cost forecasting rather than reporting using collective experience and market intelligence
  • Commercial focus and risk analysis to mitigate the impact of risk on the programme


  • Lessons learnt from data centre procurement practices as well as procurement examples from other sectors
  • Opportunities to reduce costs and project timescales through better procurement strategies and/or more efficient processes


  • Programme Management Office
  • Environmental, Social and Governance
  • Information management
  • Commissioning management
  • Stakeholder management
