We are pleased to announce that Sudlows, in collaboration with Tameside Council and MCAU Architects, have won the DCD ‘Data Centre Architecture Award’.

Now on its 15th consecutive year, the DCD Awards are a chance for the best in the business to get together and celebrate excellence and success in the Data Centre industry. In the past 15 years, there have been 1,045 finalists shortlisted, 306 awards given out and over $1 million raised for children’s charities.

The ‘Data Center Architecture Award’ category attracted 11 finalists, with Data Centres from India, Spain, USA, Thailand, and Singapore to name a few. The recently completed Sudlows Data Centre project in the rejuvenated Grade II listed Victorian Public Bath House in Ashton-Under-Lyne however, achieved the award.

The Data Centre is utilised by Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council as well as its Partners and NHS community, with additional space offered to new businesses. Sudlows were responsible for the Data Centre design and delivery. Our Enterprise Services division also designed and installed video surveillance and access control systems to keep the facility secure and our Facilities Management Team have been instructed to deliver a ten-year maintenance package to ensure peak operation for the Data Centre and to prolong the lifespan of its equipment. MCAU Architects delivered the structural and restorative works.

Sudlows have enjoyed a positive streak of award wins in 2021 and has collected Electrical Industry Award for Contractor of the Year’, 2 DCS Awards for ‘New Design/Build Data Centre Project of the Year’ and ‘Data Centre Industry Contribution of the Year’ and finally the ‘Special Award for Performance During the Pandemic’ at the Network Computing Awards. We are proud to collect a series of awards from some of the biggest industry recognised bodies over the last few months, a testament to some of the great projects and work carried out by Sudlows.
