Data Center buildings for critical IT infrastructure

Building the cloud!

A data center or mission critical facility for content delivery, cloud service, e-commerce, or general infrastructure

The development of streaming media, artificial intelligence, the internet of things (IoT), cloud services, etc. has created a construction demand in the data center market. Do you need a large data center for content delivery, cloud service, ecommerce, or general infrastructure?

We have the experience and expertise needed to realize a successful building perfectly suited to the requirements of data center structures.

A data center is a facility made up of networked computers and server cabinets that businesses use to organize, process, store, and disseminate significant amounts of data. Data centers house servers, storage devices, routers, switches, etc. They have to contain an adequate infrastructure, like power distribution, electrical switching, constant power supplies, backup generators, ventilation, and data center cooling systems, such as computer room air conditioners. This requires a physical facility with physical security like badge access and sufficient square footage and design flexibility to house the entire collection of infrastructure and equipment.
