As part of the global real estate services provider CBRE, the dedicated Data Center Solutions (DCS) business unit is dedicated to solving complex challenges at every stage of the data centre lifecycle. This includes the entire technical operation, which includes typical building management in the areas of cooling, air conditioning, power and physical security, but also the operational operation of the computer space (network, computing & storage). We carry out projects in these areas worldwide. This includes conversions, new buildings and extensions of all technical areas including office space. Strategic and technical-economic advice on the purchase and sale as well as the leasing and rental of data centres is just as much a part of our range of services as the administration and valuation of the property as well as portfolio, transaction, project and facility management. As a leading global service provider, CBRE manages more than 6.5 million square metres of space in over 800 data centres.
The data center industry is facing several challenges. These only can be tackled, if there is one voice fighting for the industry. Therefore a strong GDA is massively important and because of this CBRE is a supporter of the GDA.
