sineQN offers data centre and mission critical services in the following areas
+ Strategy & Development Management
sineQN have worked on behalf of owners and occupiers on some of the largest data centre developments in the sector, from initial business case and site identification, through to design, construction, commissioning and occupation, in a variety of countries.
We have led the negotiation, agreement and contract documentation process on GBP100M+ development agreements.
Our established relationships with the design and construction community, plant and equipment suppliers, and specialist suppliers allows us to procure and implement the whole development delivery process.
We add value through our knowledge of technical and commercial performance levels for projects. From build cost and programme, to operational costs, power costs and rental revenue, sineQN are very focused on what owners need to achieve.
+ Project & Construction Management for Data Centres and Mission Critical Facilities
Listening to our client, we develop the project brief and a delivery strategy to satisfy their business requirements; and we manage the process from inception to completion.
We work on various types of mission critical projects from new-build and live upgrade data centre projects, to critical infrastructure in headquarters buildings, to complex logistics and high security facilities.
+ Site identification for New Development
sineQN offer a site identification service to assist the owner development process, principally for hyper-scale data centre and campus schemes, due to the increasing market demand for capacity. We assess sites from a long term asset perspective and advise on the scale and performance of developments for each site.
We source and select potential development sites based upon technical and timing needs. Our site finding service utilises our experience of large industrial sites and skill sets in delivering technical projects. We have an established team of local partners across EMEA whom we work with to source sites.
+ BIM/iBMS Solutions for Projects and Operational Requirements
As part of sineQN’s drive to maximise the performance of technical real estate for owners we provide advisory services to assist in the development and deployment of Smart Technology within critical facilities.
The implementation of a Smart Technology building is about establishing the key fundamental building blocks of standardized information during the design stages.
sineQN provides expertise so that team efforts can be focused quickly on building a 3D BIM that can be used not only for construction but also to drive iBMS and other operational management systems. This allows for all the BIM benefits to be fully utilised within operations, including; self-commissioning, digital twins and virtual operational training platforms.
+ Due Diligence, Surveys & Reporting, Feasibility Studies
We provide a range of independent technical and commercial services to investigate the condition / status / legal standing of sites, buildings, installations and contractual scenarios. We provide this service across the EMEA region and work with our local partners where local technical knowledge is key.

+ Risk Management
sineQN’s risk management programmes help to raise awareness with business leaders and managers so that mitigation measures can be addressed in full by the wider team.
