Overcoming the next set of challenges for data centre design and construction
Despite pandemic supply chain shocks and workforce mobility issues, data centre construction has continued to grow unabated in Europe. Over the last two years the sector has played a crucial role supporting everything from day-to-day business operations to mission critical applications for a wide range of commercial activities. Throughout, vendors, construction companies and data centre operators have all faced an unprecedented increase in demand as CIOs accelerated digital transformation strategies, moved on-premise workloads into the cloud and promoted remote working in response to covid restrictions.
This expert panel brings together key players in the data centre ecosystem - the general contractor, the design engineer and the technology vendor - to share their insights on the next set of challenges facing European data centre construction. Together, they will discuss the speed at which construction is moving, the effects upon facility design, the supply chain and access to resources, and the growing importance of flexibility.
