RBA is one of the leading architectural practices in France recognised for its experience in the design and construction of data centres. The firm has worked on numerous projects in Europe and the Middle East, notably in France for Global Switch, Equinix, Digital Realty, Telecity, Sodearif and Bouygues Energy Services. These projects can be very challenging. The large consumption of energy, the quantity of heat production, the high tech equipment to be housed safely and efficiently, often in vast spaces, requires skill and technical know-how in order to best integrate the various components of the architectural project.
The construction of data centres throws up many questions, for example, choosing the suitable type of data centre – standard or modular, the long term durability of the building, integration and location of technical elements, principles of cooling and choosing the most suitable air conditioning system, building security, materials used and high quality construction detailing, all must be considered when developing the aesthetic concept and form of the building which best serves the technical and economic interests of the project.
