principles and models    

The specific functionality of this relatively new class of buildings and facilities requires an extremely comprehensive approach to the design and implementation of individual components and installations. The density of machines, servers and computers poses a serious challenge to building systems, in particular cooling systems, building management systems (bms) and safety systems. On the other hand, the dynamics of the IT industry requires flexibility and opportunities for future development and expansion that must be anticipated in the constructive project.
