This report reviews the UK market for data centre construction, incorporating new build, replacement/retrofit and RMI and covering both public sector and private sector work. This is not a review of the commercial data centre operator/developer market. It covers the overall size and performance of the construction of data centres market since 2015, with forecasts provided until 2024, as well as key end use sectors and market influences. The report focuses on buildings constructed or converted for the sole use as data centres, and excludes server rooms within existing buildings, however, privately owned stand-alone data centres are covered.

Data centre construction projects are characterised by their large size and by their substantial requirements for power to the site. Relatively few data centres are constructed as new builds each year; however, the large size of these projects mean they have a significant impact on the market. This market is heavily reliant on replacement, repair and maintenance work as there is a relatively large base of existing data centres, of which many are nearing end of life. In addition, replacement cycles are relatively short due to the rapid development and changing requirements of IT equipment.

Growth in the data centre construction market has been strong since late 2015, following a slowdown driven by over-supply of space. The shutdown of construction sites in 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak will impact the sector in the short-term, but demand is such that the output levels are forecast to recover strongly when restrictions are eased.
