Enterprise Data Center Design Award

Cat. #3, Project & Technology Categories
Entries Closed

Contrary to many headlines, the enterprise data center remains a cornerstone of data infrastructure for many organisations. Cloud and colocation projects may get the media attention, but on-premise facilities are still growing - and still innovating.

Enterprise data centers must meet a single company’s specific needs, and continue to meet those needs as they change, so those building, extending or upgrading them will face unique design challenges.

The judging panel will look for projects that have addressed those challenges, and delivered new build developments or major extension, upgrade, modernisation projects to existing facilities with original ideas tailored for enterprise customers.


  • To qualify, all or part of the project must be operational by 1st September 2020.
  • The data center was built specifically for an enterprise organization (financial services, healthcare, transport, logistics, retail, Government etc) to service their own IT requirements.
  • Architects, consulting engineers and contractors can nominate design projects on behalf of their clients and assist in the preparation of the entry.
  • This award will be presented jointly to the company for whom the data center was built  and the company responsible for its design
