Data centres have an enormous impact on our lives and the world we live in. The global digital revolution is bringing prosperity to more and more countries and regions. And where digital infrastructures are created, new economic opportunities arise. Data centres facilitate transformation benefiting millions of people in their daily lives.

We have been involved in the emergence and development of data centres and other mission critical facilities from the pioneer phase. Throughout the revolution, our aim has been to convert client investments in data centres - anywhere in the world - into a reliable and profitable end result. With more than 300 experts working at Royal HaskoningDHV in the data centre sector, we enable businesses, operations and systems to operate efficiently, effectively and continuously. We deliver resilient and energy-efficient mission critical facilities. And you can be part of this.

Working on sustainable data centres

We are continually innovating to enable data centres to run more effectively and efficiently, increasing reliability, while using less water and energy. We optimise space, ensure the architecture is appropriate, and embrace synergies such as heat exchange with local homes and businesses. Using multi-criteria methods, including parametric design, we are testing concepts before implementation to see their impact on reducing energy, water, materials, investment, and operational costs, as well as the extent to which they meet circular economy principles.

Our sustainable solutions for greenfield and brownfield sites include energy-efficient design, waste heat exchange and energy storage, the reuse of existing buildings, smaller footprints through high-rise development, reduced water usage, and more.

I am proud of many projects to date. A project from South Africa that I am proud of is the new build of a residential and shopping estate in the breath-taking coastline of Durban, they are called ‘The Oceans Umhlanga’.

I saw teams from different backgrounds work together to design (and build) a multi-storey residential block, a 26 storey Radisson Blu hotel, and a large shopping mall. All within the same site. The project had strict deadlines and required a large effort for co-ordination but was successful in the end and a site to behold.
