The Team

We partner with some of the top designers, contractors, and suppliers in the data centre sector, and indeed have worked with many of the same people for years.

Our network of partners and expertise internationally gives us significant capacity and reach.

Our Story

sineQN’s team originally hailed from a financial services background, where they had delivered multiple major data centre projects in the banking sector, setting up sineQN in 2007. The team quickly developed a strong business and reputation in mission critical project and cost management.

Over the following years the team led some of the largest data centre projects in the UK and internationally, also working on important critical facility upgrade works. The firm’s client list comprises many recognised brands including financial institutions and global technology companies.

In 2018 the leadership decided to alter the course of the firm so it could play a lead role in the development decision making process, bringing technical and sustainable excellence to data centre development solutions. This is an exciting trajectory where sineQN is now able to utilise everything learnt over the years and offer technically and financially compelling solutions to occupiers.
