Design considerations for data centres of the future: Aurecon top 10 tips
Design considerations for future proofing a data centreâs design involves foresight and understanding of a broad range of issues in the digital age. The digital age has increased the demand for data centres that meet stringent performance requirements, including security, energy efficiency, business continuity and productivity optimisation requirements, and which also accommodate rising, unpredictable future loads. The application of cutting-edge technologies and innovation has become a burning issue in the construction of data centres. Coupled with the emergence of digital engineering and the widespread use of Building Information Modelling (BIM), new builds and the operation of these will become far more efficient. Aureconâs building expert, Peter Greaves, shares his top 10 design considerations for future proofing data centres.
