JLL has been selected by global digital infrastructure provider EDGNEX to provide facilities management services to its expanding data centre operations across Africa, Asia, CIS, Europe and the Middle East.
EDGNEX provides access to digital infrastructure in rapidly growing local markets with the same service levels available in global destinations. Its parent company, DAMAC Properties, is owned by Dubai-based billionaire Hussain Sajwani and has been at the forefront of the Middle East’s luxury real estate market since 2002. The company’s footprint extends across the Middle East with projects in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, Lebanon, Oman as well as the UK.
EDGNEX is in the process of buying, building and partnering to develop data centres in underserved and overlooked markets and JLL will support the company with creating and developing a delivery model and customer facing portal to support incident management and other value-added services including remote hands, whitespace provision and customer relations.
Jonathan Kinsey, JLL’s Head of Data Centre Services (EMEA), comments: “We’re looking forward to supporting EDGNEX’s mission and growing together in the data centre space. It has ambitious plans and we’re excited to support its vision for the next digital hubs.”
