Panel discussion: Building at scale and speed: Is modular construction key to keeping pace with the age of ubiquitous computing?

The market drivers and societal trends of digital everything, everywhere, anytime, combined with upward economic mobility and the global shift in the workforce from skilled crafts and trades to knowledge-based and e-commerce-centric, are placing diametrically opposing forces upon the data center community. We need to design, build, deploy, and operate more complex mission-critical infrastructure than ever before with an ever-shrinking pool of skilled, experienced, and properly trained talent leading to a renewed belief in the promise of prefabricated, factory-built structures in streamlining planning, slashing construction time and capital expenditure.

Our panellists will outline how they are getting to grips with the customization vs. standardization debate, increasing construction efficiency without ‘cutting corners’.
