As technology needs continue to grow, bigger and more powerful data centers are needed to keep up with the growing demand. Data centers were once a black hole of energy inefficiency, but new approaches to data center design are quickly making these buildings sustainable. Below, let's examine just a few ways improved design can help create sustainable data centers.

Engineers and designers focused on sustainable design are constantly looking for ways to reduce energy usage and ultimately the carbon footprint of a building. Passive building design utilizes the building's natural environment to heat and cool the building, which provides an optimum living temperature. Let's explore some components of passive building design below.

Accidents happen no matter how carefully a building is planned. Designs in practice don't work, mechanical systems fail, or materials do not hold up as predicted. When this happens, unfortunately, there can be heavy financial implications to sort out responsibility for repairs. Performing a forensic study by senior engineers can help determine the cause of the failure. Further, understanding why a material or system did not work can help create an improved design in the future.

Modern technology has allowed designers and engineers to improve their building techniques by leaps and bounds. 3D scanning technology is a fast and efficient way to get real time, accurate pictures of existing buildings. By using several points of light, 3D scanners are able to piece together what is called a point cloud, or a digital blueprint of the area scanned.

With engineers, scientists, and designers taking a closer look at sustainable building ideals, new design concepts are regularly emerging. One of these newer concepts is known as Designing for Manufacturability (DFM). With this process, companies and clients alike are quickly seeing the benefits of constructing a building through DFM principles. Not only are companies able to monetarily benefit, but through this design concept, companies are able to further their sustainability initiatives. To see how DFM relates to engineering and construction we need to take a deeper dive.
