Move into Data Centres design – the fastest-growing M&E sector!

It’s no secret that the Data Centres sector is a huge growth area for Building Services – as the demand for data storage driven by global commerce has skyrocketed, the requirement for data storage has risen in parallel.

The number of Data Centres being build has increased exponentially over recent years, as have the complexity of the designs and the sheer size. Companies like Facebook, Google and other internet giants are constantly looking to build more and increase their data storage capacity, and have planned pipeline developments stretching well into the future.

Within Mechanical and Electrical Design, technology and design innovations have kept pace with the demand explosion, however there is one way the industry has been left behind – in terms of staff development.

Data Centres M&E Design is very specialist – whereas within “classic” Building Services (commercial/resi/etc), generalist design engineers can fairly easily switch between types of project, Data Centres engineering demands specialist skills, specialist engineers – but there is a shortage of these.

These skills are highly in demand in future and will become more and more so – the advantage in ten/twenty years, as he sector has grown even more, will be with the people who’ve been doing it for years – so starting now is the smart move for an ambitious engineer.

The company I am working with at the moment has been at the forefront of the Data Centres revolution. They are the best Data Centres building services engineering consultants in the country, bar none – borne out by their client list and the Data Centres they have designed over the years. They are expanding their specialist team to stay at the front of the curve, but they need the engineers to do it. They are on the lookout for young, talented, intelligent and ambitious engineers ready to develop their careers in this sector – from 0 to 10 years experienced, both mechanical and electrical.

In return, they offer excellent remuneration alongside a unique training program, access to the expertise and experience of the engineers who have designed the world’s most ground-breaking Data Centres … and the chance to work on the current and future ground-breaking projects!

This is a uniquely exciting opportunity for engineers looking to develop their career. To discuss further and set up interviews, please send your CV to or to discuss further call John Sanger on 0207 065 7276.
