Infrastructure and Data Centre Design Expertise Matched To Your Requirements

Wide experience, practical solutions and creative problem solving to minimise your risk

The challenges for data centres

In Data Centre architecture, the pressure to maximise rack space while trying to improve energy efficiency, is a constant challenge. Likewise, industrial developments require a flexible and extendable space, that can adapt for future technology.

We will bring a pro-active and practical data centre design solution, delivering creative architectural services closely integrated with your engineering teams, to achieve resilient and sustainable Data Centre design and industrial/warehouse solutions, whether you are building new, repurposing an existing structure or extending your facilities.

Combined with a creative approach to problem solving, we can help you deliver first rate, highly resilient facilities, that are right first time and completed on schedule.

Clients benefit from over 35 years’ in-depth knowledge and experience of designing and project managing large scale Data Centre developments in the UK, Europe, Russia, Singapore and across the Far East.

Our data centre architecture projects have included underground facilities, conversion of redundant factories, aircraft hangers, installation of new floors in existing data halls, extensions and alterations. For many of our new build schemes we have provided iconic designs, to reflect the futuristic ethos of the client company.

We understand your requirements from a mechanical and electrical engineering perspective and can help reduce the cost of building, particularly in terms of layout, sustainability and building fabric.

Using our experience can accelerate project development, especially during feasibility and concept stages.

For Industrial clients requiring flexible manufacturing capabilities on a constrained site, building new warehousing or extend existing facilities, we are practiced at rapidly turning our clients requirements into working architectural solutions, that understand and reflect your mission-critical ethos and goals.

Our technical experts can help you achieve a planning consent on heavily restricted sites and design attractive buildings to satisfy demanding local authorities. Our experience in working as part of a delivery team ensures the best value and best design within a tight programme.
