Our IT transformation project with Willis Towers Watson has been shortlisted for another award!
As well as being shortlisted for Data Centre Consolidation/Upgrade/Refresh Project of the Year at the 2018 Data Centre Solutions Awards it has also been announced as finalist in the inaugural Electrical Review Excellence Awards.
Shortlisted for Data Centre Design & Build Project of the Year, our project with Willis Towers Watson to deliver two upgraded UK hubs was part of a global transformation programme following the merger of Willis Group and Towers Watson in 2016.
Paul West, Global Data Centre Director said:
“The delivery of the new data centre expansion was a crucial part of our IT strategy and has taken us to another level of resiliency. From designing to our requirements and delivering the project without downtime, the team at Keysource were instrumental in the project’s success.”
A full shortlist can be seen here, with winners being announced at an awards ceremony at The Dorchester in London on the 24th May.
We are proud to announce Keysource has been shortlisted as a finalist in two categories in the 2018 Data Centre Solutions (DCS) Awards.

Delivered within tight timescales and with very challenging logistics the Keysource team designed and delivered a cutting edge HPC environment that is a UK first in the education sector.
