Data Centre Architects & Designers

 

Collard Maxwell Architects has been one of Australia’s leading Data Centre Architects and Designers of Mission Critical infrastructure since vacuum tubes were in use, and data was stored on punch cards.

Whether your challenges are with High Performance Edge Computing (HPC), or Cloud/Collocation (Big Data), our professionals can help. Over time we have learnt that "form must follow function" (or your business case), and that each data centre is unique; some must grunt like powerful jet engines, while others must make a profound design statement about their owners and users.

We provide State-of-the-Art building design and space planning advice; but also peer review, documentation, Construction-side D&C services, and accelerated design delivery solutions to builders and owners of Data Centres. Our focus is on helping you reduce political, market, financial, and execution risks; while increasing Speed-to-Market for your next Data Centre Expansion, Upgrade, or New-Built.

Get in touch with us at +61 2 9955 0637 about our ongoing research projects, or to discuss how we could help you meet your specific commercial objectives.
