We know the Data Ecosystem

Data is most valuable when it’s immediately accessible. It gets its power from an ecosystem of high-powered data centers and networks, and needs a strong, reliable foundation to work at its maximum potential. As we become increasingly reliant on fast, accessible data to communicate, govern and do business across the globe, the more critical continuous uptime becomes. To ensure the ecosystem remains operational and data is accessible 24/7, Black & Veatch helps you balance reliability, efficiency and cost with your long-term sustainability goals through smart, responsible design-build solutions.

Our design and build solutions cover the entire life-cycle of a data center deployment from program management, planning, site selection and due diligence, architecture and engineering through construction. With this end-to-end solution combined with our expertise in energy, water and telecommunications, Black & Veatch can serve as your single point of contact and partner to help you grow, innovate and lead your industry.
