This episode will stream live at 11:00am BST

As the risks from data center construction increase due to macroeconomic factors and changing customer requirements, the importance of good contracting to protect both parties has become even more crucial. In this episode, DCD will be joined by Bird & Bird’s Sophie Phillips to discuss key risk areas in contracts, and how these are changing as the data center industry evolves. They will explore:

  • Implications from the most important risks areas in contract, including quality, insurance, and termination rights, and how operators and contractors should be responding
  • ESG obligations around data collection, and where the sector should be moving towards the use of frameworks
  • How contracts are adapting to account for increased supply chain uncertainties, and how to achieve buy-in from all parties
