Robert joined Hurley Palmer Flatt in 2004 and immediately started on a range of data centres for the likes of Barclays, Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch; these were all high profile, high end technology data centres being delivered quickly and effectively. Since then, Robert has led the change in data centre design, moving towards adiabatic cooling, fresh air cooling and alternative power delivery processes, these have all been part of a continual evolving design to meet the requirements and demands of the data centre market.

Robert continues to specialise in critical engineering design and delivery, but also applies his capabilities to other related areas such as trading buildings and healthcare infrastructure. He is currently the Executive Director responsible for the Hurley Palmer Flatt Data Centre Division and all technical delivery within the Company and is based in London.
