We are delighted to announce that the first data centre being built by JCA at the Harlow Enterprise Zone in Essex on behalf of KAO Data has achieved a BREEAM Excellent Design Certification.

BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for master planning projects, infrastructure and buildings, measuring sustainable value in a series of categories. The certification is an impressive credential for the attention that’s been paid to keeping a low carbon footprint for KAO Data and its customers. We are immensely proud of all the hard-work that everyone has put into this landmark achievement for sustainability. The development of KAO London One at Harlow, as part of the KAO Data Campus continues according to schedule with client handover anticipated in December 2017.

JCA’s Managing Director, Tom Absalom, commented:

“Achieving BREEAM ‘Excellent Design Certification’ for the data centre construction project JCA is delivering on a design and build basis for KAO Data is testament to our collective focus on delivering the highest levels of sustainability. The team can be very proud of gaining this significant environmental recognition as part of its collaborative approach.”
