Global Switch Hong Kong Data Centre

Hong Kong

Project Overview

Global Switch, a data centre developer, is building an environmentally sustainable data centre in Tseung Kwan O, Hong Kong.

The new data centre is comprised of five buildings, which will provide a total of 45,000m2 of floor space to store servers and cooling systems, providing an output of 100MW.

The buildings will incorporate some of the industry’s latest design features, providing best-in-class technical solutions with a focus on resiliency.

Offering a range of cloud, colocation and managed services in a low-risk operational environment, Global Switch Hong Kong will have 100MVA utility power supply capacity to store enough data for major global clients.

Global Switch employed a main contractor to construct the data centre, with construction commencing in 2019.


TBH’s Role

TBH was engaged by Global Switch Hong Kong to undertake the following:

  • Assessment of the Main Contractor’s contract programme;
  1. Review programme structure including logic and testing for concurrency;
  2. Undertake a SWOT analysis (Strength, Weakness, Opportunities and Threats) to highlight key opportunities to mitigate programme risks;
  • Prepare client reports with their findings, potential programme risks and recommendations; and
  • Explore and develop a ‘client’s programme’ based on the Contractor’s Master programme and on-site progress.


The TBH Difference 

TBH helped provide clear visibility on the project timeline, identified risks and provided recommendations to mitigate issues.

TBH also developed a client’s programme to give the client clearer insight into the expected programme to deliver the project. This enabled the client to liaise with the Contractor with a clearer understanding of the risks and opportunities in the programme, so that all parties’ goals were aligned to deliver the project on time and within budget.
