Data Center Design Innovation Award
Data centers come in many shapes and sizes, from modest-sized inner city data centers, to high rise multi-story facilities through to massive campus style wholesale developments and hyperscale facilities ready to house the biggest clients. How can design ensure that each data center is fit for its operational purpose throughout its life and can meet or exceed client requirements?
