About Ark Data Centres

Ark Data Centres

Ark Data Centres Limited is a company that specialises in the design, build and operation of high integrity data centres. Ark Data Centres aims to deliver secure, resilient and sustainable data centres, offering all the benefits of owner-occupation but on an outsourced, modular basis.

Spring Park is one of Ark Data Centres’ newest developments; built on a legacy of over 50 years investment in critical national infrastructure, it affords occupiers the opportunity to embrace best practice and sustainable principles in the design, construction, engineering and operation of its data centres.

The Challenge

When it comes to operating sustainable data centres that support businesses’ critical IT and communication processes, resilience and security are vital. No more so than at Ark Data Centres’ newest development – Spring Park.

Richard Borton, Operations Manager for Ark Data Centres, says that security is of paramount importance in the data storage industry: “When you provide white space in which to house clients’ data servers, you’re effectively supplying three crucial commodities: energy, cooling and a secure space. Security is as important as any other element of the business because our clients rely on our developments to be both secure and fully operational 24/7,” he explains.


“Their tender offered the best value and most comprehensive package, not only for us and our clients, but also for their staff.”


The Solution

Ark Data Centres contracted Axis Security to provide a manned guarding service at its Spring Bank site, one of Europe’s premier data centre campus locations. Axis Security also manages the existing onsite security equipment, an integrated access control system and CCTV system that cover all areas of the campus.

Richard Borton, Operations Director says: “The team at Axis Security won the contract because their tender offered the best value and most comprehensive package, not only for us and our clients, but also for their staff.”

Courtesy of Axis Security’s excellent performance at Spring Park, it has since been awarded another contract – Cody Park, as Richard comments: “We’ve been delighted with the work Axis Security is doing at Spring Park so we have decided to also award them the contract to secure our new site at Cody Park.”

Axis Group CEO, Jonathan Levine, comments: “Both Axis Security and Ark Data Centres are dynamic, prospering companies and we are building a long term partnership, based upon openness and trust. Axis Security has the dedication, enthusiasm and ability to support Ark Data Centres during its continued expansion."
