Modular & Mobile Data Centre Build Options

As businesses become more reliant on the Internet, it is becoming apparent that having your data centre infrastructure closer to the source of the data is crucial. With the need to improve latency speeds and to possess greater control, companies are seeking a more agile solution that can be easily replicated across their operational estate. The solution is a Prefabricated, Modular & Mobile Data Centre (MDC).

Modularity is now at the forefront of contemporary data centre design. The goal is to build a dynamic data centre solution capable of rapid change to meet evolving market demands. With an increased trend for edge computing, Prefabricated, Modular & Mobile Data Centres are growing in popularity.

MDC solutions provide clients with complete agility by delivering a scalable approach to data centre planning and design, as well as eliminating the need for traditional ‘bricks and mortar’ buildings.

Telecoms Cabins

By its very nature fixed line and mobile telecoms infrastructure is distributed throughout the network in order to support a range of transmission applications including but not limited to repeater stations, mobile base stations, 5G fibre hotels and other associated fixed line and mobile and telecoms applications.

Whilst centralised assets can be secured in bricks and mortar central exchange or points of presence buildings, the vast majority of infrastructure needs to be deployed in the field. Pre-engineered Turnkey Pre-fabricated Buildings enable the cost-effective deployment of remote fixed line and mobile infrastructure for the telecoms industry.

This pre-fabricated, scalable approach reduces data centre and telecoms deployment from years and months to weeks, providing pay-as-you-grow infrastructure to match your compute, fixed line telecoms or mobile deployments. Plus, it will typically reduce overall capital expenditure by over 40%!


  • Reduced Capital Outlay
  • Rapid System Deployment
  • Scalable Alternative to Traditional Large-Scale Facilities
  • Pre-Engineered Technology for ‘Plug and Play’ deployment
  • Future Proofed ‘Pay-as-You-Grow’ Infrastructure
  • Creates an Environmentally Greener Data, Telecoms or Mobile Environment.

An additional benefit of a portable, Modular & Mobile Data Centre or Telecoms Cabin is once it has fulfilled its purpose or its capabilities and is no longer sufficient for the job in hand, it can be easily removed from the rest of your infrastructure and replaced with relative ease with another one that is fit for purpose.

Portable Technical Prefabricated Build Options

Workspace Technology offers a range of Portable Modular & Mobile Data Centre, Telecoms Cabin & SCIF build options to suit a wide range of applications allowing organisations to closely couple expansion and associated capital investment with capacity.

Our turnkey pre-fabricated Modular & Mobile Data Centre and Telecoms Cabins can be deployed as 'standalone' units or within existing buildings.

Workspace Technology applies the principals of modularity to the design and build of our portable prefabricated buildings. This modular approach utilises pre-engineered and standard manufactured components.

Portable, Modular & Mobile Data Centre, Telecoms & Sensitive Compartmented Facility Formats Include:

Prefabricated Data Centre - Where installations are ‘static’ and ease of serviceability is paramount, bespoke prefabricated manufactured modular pods with widths ranging from 3.0m to 3.8m and lengths from 6m to 18m.

Prefabricated portable, Modular & Mobile Data Centres, Telecoms Cabins and SCIF’s offer a practical cost effective alternative to ISO containers.

Prefabricated Modular & Mobile Data Centre, Telecoms and SCIF housings can also be formed and delivered in two half sections, positioned, joined and sealed onsite to form larger facility. Alternatively, portable, Modular & Mobile Data Centre pods or Telecoms cabins can also be positioned in clusters and connected via prefabricated “link” corridors.

Bespoke designs are attractive to operators because they offer flexible equipment rack access in a similar fashion to conventional bricks and mortar data centres and exchange facilities. Typical rack counts range from 6 to 24, scaling through the deployment of multiple pods.

Containerised Data Centre - Where ongoing portability and flexible transportation is paramount, our 2.4m wide, ISO containerised data centre format offers the ideal solution with lengths ranging from 6m to 12m (20ft / 40ft). Typical rack counts range from 4 to 8 where power and cooling systems are fully integrated to create an all-in-one solution

Modular Data Centre Building Construction  - This build option utilises steel frame structures and composite panel cladding systems which can be erected both internally (typically within a large open warehouse) or externally. This construction option is ideal for creating a standalone building with rack counts ranging from 24 to >200.

Security & Acoustic Performance – All of our build options offer a range of physical security levels including certified compliance with LPS1175 SR2, SR3 & SR4 protection and CNPI certified protection for high security environments. In addition, Acoustic and Electromagnetic Protection or EMP Shielding options can be incorporated into the design depending on application.

Installation Services - Workspace Technology provides holistic Prefabricated installation services incorporating structural design, base construction, security fencing and installation of service ducts as well as electrical and I.T cabling and associated mechanical services pipework and plant.

Our Project Team implements a strict design, review and agreement regime to ensure first time success delivering engineering excellence and innovation for all our Modular & Mobile Data Centre Solutions clients.
