Hello and welcome to February’s edition of Construction Global.
Our first feature this month looks at five of the key trends for the building industry in 2018. Construction industry expert Saeed Al Abbar, of leading Dubai-based consultancy AESG and Chairman of the Emirates Green Building Council, talks us through what he expects to be the key topics and trends for 2018
Continuing with the theme of trends, we speak to Universal Electric Corporation, the manufacturer of Starline, and a global leader in power distribution equipment about the latest trends in data centre construction.
One pressing issue within the data centre industry is the tremendous amount of electricity required to power the equipment and cooling systems. We speak to Equinix, one of the world’s largest data centre providers, to learn more about how the company is leading the way to sustainable data centre service provision.
We also speak exclusively to a number of construction’s top companies about the prescient trends and pressing issues in the industry.
Alongside this, we also look at the top 10 most expensive buildings in the world.
