RED was delighted to take home the “Highly Commended” award for Sustainable Project of the Year, at the MEP Middle East Awards at Rixos Premium Dubai.
The Sustainable Project of the Year category acknowledges those projects designed with sustainability criteria at the forefront, highlighting innovative technologies that have been deployed to create a sustainable environment within the architectural or structural requirements.
The project, for a Turkish Bank, was to deliver an Uptime Tier IV and LEED certified data centre facility that fully met the client’s requirements and to provide cost effective flexibility for technology expansion.
The project utilises a whole building approach to sustainability incorporating the techniques of a sustainable rating system such as LEED.
This new build data centre has achieved the Uptime Institute Tier IV Certification for Design. It is also the first Tier IV Constructed Facility certified site in Turkey and will achieve the Uptime Institute Operational Sustainability Certification in due course.
