Mercury is proud to announce that we are working as the prime contractor on Global Technical Realty’s (GTR) GB One data centre campus near London, UK.

Located on the Slough Trading Estate – one of Greater London’s data centre hotbeds – this 40.5MW facility will be the largest of its kind in the area upon full build out.
