Continued Demand Expected for Data Center Design and Construction

While 2020 saw many businesses struggle in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, others saw new opportunities for growth.

Over the past several weeks, Paul Schlattman and other ESD team members have been reaching out to clients and various industry experts to assess the outlook for the data center design and construction industry in 2021. In his On Target Series article, “Data Center Design and Construction Outlook,” for Mission Critical magazine, Schlattman summarizes projections for the remainder of the year for hyperscale builders, multi-tenant data centers, high-performance compute projects, and more.

He says the increased demand for data processing has several large cloud providers proceeding with multiple projects to meet the capacity requirements of end-users. At a time when other industries continue to struggle, Schlattman notes it has been the technology industry that has helped to carry others through.
