    Turnbull joked to Scroggie that if the datacentre business fails, he may have an alternate career in the making.

    "I'm still awe-struck by the magnificence of this building, the extraordinary equipment that you've installed and above all by the striking colour scheme. I mean really if you fail in this venture — which of course you won't — you have a huge career in terms of corporate styling and decoration ahead of you," he said.

    "This must be the most striking datacentre I've ever seen. It is an amazing landmark."
