The December issue of Construction Global is here!

Our cover stars this month are building the digital future. Data centre giants Digital Realty are innovating to deliver hyper-personalised data centre services from the single rack to the hyperscale. “We build, design and operate some of the most highly interconnected data centres in the world,” says Corey Dyer, EVP of Global Sales and Marketing, who reveals the company’s plans for expansion in South Korea and gives us the lowdown on Platform Digital.

We hear from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) on howsustainable construction sites can drive the industry forward. Targeting reduced CO2emissions, the green construction market is predicted to grow by 10% each year. USGBC President Mahesh Ramanujam explains how your business can be part of the green solution with the advancement of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).

Our country focus examines the challenges UK construction faces meeting net-zero targets for 2050. Thornton Tomasetti Sustainability Lead Duncan Cox argues that in order to deliver net-zero buildings that are truly sustainable, we must consider the ‘whole life carbon’ of the building from the outset.

Meanwhile, we get up to speed on HS2 and learn how a joint venture between Skanska, Costain and Strabag is utilising BIM (Building Information Modeling) and GIS (Geographic Information System) integration to support a shared platform for data that promotes efficiency by building a common visualisation environment. 

We also profile eStruxture Data Centers and learn how Randall Construction is cementing its position as the leading self-perform in Florida by investing in innovation to deliver market disrupting services across an impressive portfolio of business units.
