The demand for data centre space is increasing at an accelerated rate, whilst the technology at the core of its operation is rapidly changing. Although cost remains key, there are many fundamental factors to consider for the provision of a data centre, which will impact all stakeholders, from landlord to end-user and operator to investor.
Our Data Centre Advisory Group provides strategic advice and real estate services to occupiers, landlords, investors and operators within the niche real estate asset class of data centres.
We are a multi-disciplined team advising clients of all sizes and industries - every client engagement is unique, but the level of service and professionalism you can expect from Cushman & Wakefield remains the same. With our holistic understanding, of data centre provision, from development to occupation, we can provide best in class advice to ensure our clients receive added and measurable value.

No matter the business, data continues to grow in its importance. At the same time the sheer volume, accessibility and requirements for its storage and transport, are ballooning. Data centre downtime can cost enterprises millions in lost revenue and compensation. It can also threaten the livelihood of a business by causing irreparable damage to its reputation.
