Upper Hill is Nairobi’s new financial district and commercial hub of East Africa with regional offices of various national and international financing institutions and multinationals.

“We are delighted to host PAIX Data Centres at Britam Tower, an award-winning and state-of-the-art building,” says Ambrose Dabani, CEO of Britam Life Assurance.
“The arrival of PAIX Data Centres in Upper Hill enables the digital transformation of our business, an important building block for our future plans. It ensures that both Britam and our tenants have access to world-class digital infrastructure, with access to all the major networks and cloud providers. This will further strengthen Upper Hill as the hub for business in Nairobi and Britam Tower as the building of choice.”
