Data centre efficiency on tap
12 Apr 2013
Melbourne Water's new data centre has been operational for less than 12 months and has already received a number of industry and sustainability awards.
As the lead consultant on this project, NDY spoke to Ecolibrium magazine about various innovative aspects of the design and how they will help deliver an anticipated 40 per cent reduction in energy consumption.
The heritage-listed St George's House was named Bishop's Grove when originally constructed in 1892, and it represents a stunning example of a Federation Queen Anne Style Building.
Now known as the Terrace Hotel, the building was redeveloped in 2011-2012 and extended for use as a luxury boutique hotel. In this feature story for Builders Choice magazine, NDY project director Kevin Spark discusses the challenges of integrating modern services in a heritage building.
The Premier of Victoria, Denis Napthine, announced this morning that the Exemplar Consortia, which includes Lend Lease as builder, has been awarded the new $630 Million Bendigo hospital project in regional Victoria.
"This is a significant milestone for one of the largest regional healthcare projects in Australia," Premier Napthine said. Norman Disney & Young will provide all building services consulting engineering to the successful Lend Lease team, and were a key contributor to its successful bid.
The highly regarded annual awards showcase owners, operators, consultants and vendors in the data centre space who have contributed ideas, projects and products to significantly improve energy efficiency in IT.
The Rotary Club of St Leonards, NSW, recently awarded the Pride of Workmanship Award to NDY sustainability consultant Noni Nuriani.
The Pride of Workmanship program was launched in Australia as a Rotary project in 1975 with the aim of encouraging pride in personal performance in the workplace, and help create a national attitude for the broader benefit of the Australian workforce.
