Rocketing data usage is driving a construction boom for data centres, but contractors and developers must navigate a specialised risk and insurance landscape to ensure the success of their projects.

This has created a need for supporting infrastructure, such as data handling and storage facilities, the construction of which raises specific risk management and construction insurance considerations.
