US engineering giant Aecom has teamed up with a maker of prefabricated buildings called Project Frog to form a company specialising in low cost data centres.
The "rapid deployment team" will aim to deliver buildings that combine modular innovation with traditional construction methods.
Project Frog’s "Converge" data centre kit is designed and engineered for maximum efficiency, allowing for accelerated construction.
Aecom say it has a "deep knowledge of the data centre market and expertise in the turnkey provision of data centre facilities".
Louis Armstrong, Aecom’s executive vice president, said: "This partnership will provide our clients with access to a service offering unparalleled in our industry.
Project Frog’s innovative and proven delivery method combined with Aecom’s lifecycle data centre services, create a quality, turnkey delivery solution."
The team offers services for small and large data centres, from 1-50MW.
