Build to suit solutions
Building data centres to suit your requirements
Colt DCS’s fully customisable, bespoke wholesale data centre options provide greater choice for those wanting control over the designs, infrastructure, commercials, services and security for their data centre. With more than 20 years’ experience in designing and building facilities and managing environments, and our global footprint and local expertise, we can take you into new markets at a competitive price or build out in existing locations.
Our wholesale services range from customer-led land acquisitions for the construction of sites in new locations to building-to-suite in existing wholesale facilities, allowing you to instantly tap into Colt’s existing skills and community with connectivity across our global footprint and premium support.
"Our real estate team will resource any location globally that will best suit our customer's requirement. We will also assist local compliance and regulatory processes so that progress is fluid and controlled."
Our real estate teams manage your risk
At Colt DCS, we focus on where our customers need to be, building highly connected sites in the centre of key European and Asian business hubs and lower-cost wholesale on ramps on the edge of these markets. Our solid financial backing, and commitment to spend more than €200m in the next three years on building new sites, means we can work with our customers to identify new locations and ensure we are placing facilities where you need to be.
Our dedicated real estate team ensures the careful pre-selection of sites around the world, while our local experts can help overcome ‘red tape’ and compliance and regulatory concerns for customers entering new markets.

Colt DCS’ real estate teams understand the challenges that come with entering new markets, and that often, our anchor tenants require access to these with speed. Our experts are always talking with customers about where their next requirement might be, and identify land-banking options with pre-approved construction permits and power purchase agreements which means we can build out as soon as our anchor tenant requires.
