McLaren set for giant London data centre

The Enquirer understands McLaren has fought off competition from Sisk to land the deal for Ada Infrastructure in London’s Silvertown.

Ada – which is the data centre platform of GLP Capital Partners – was awarded a resolution to grant planning from the Newham Strategic Development Committee last week.

The 210 MW Docklands data center campus is designed for emerging AI workloads and will eventually stretch across three buildings.

Industry sources said McLaren’s win on the first building is believed to be worth more than £500m.

One said: “The data centre market is absolutely flying at the moment and this is a prize job.

“It’s a real statement of intent from McLaren to pick up a contract like this.”

Jennifer Weitzel, President of Ada Infrastructure, said: “This new data center development embodies our commitment to driving positive change through the use of sustainable technology and materials, a robust environmental, health and safety program, and an ongoing investment in the communities in which we work and live.

“In addition to collaborating with local partners to provide job training and employment opportunities, the project’s future-ready design, including energy-efficient systems, net positive landscaping, and strict physical and cybersecurity protocols, will set new standards for safe and sustainable development in the age of AI.”

The new development will significantly enhance the public spaces around the site, including improved pathways for pedestrians and cyclists along the Thames River.
