Enrichment of knowledge
“The Dutch Data Center Association represents a large part of the DGMR customers. We are therefore of the opinion that a partnership leads to an enrichment of knowledge “, explains Doede Wessels, partner and consultant at DGMR. By joining the DDA, we can support the participants in the planning and decision-making processes for the realization of their data centers. DGMR does know the laws and regulations, analyzes these for the business situation and creates opportunities for the future development.
Stijn Grove, Managing Director of the DDA: “The Netherlands is one of the largest and most prosperous data center countries in the world, thanks to its excellent connectivity and the attractive and stable establishment opportunities. It is therefore no surprise that large international parties choose to establish their HQs and data centers in our country and the national players also continue to grow and expand steadily. Being able to switch quickly in the fast, dynamic data center market is essential and DGMR is, with their knowledge, the obvious candidate to guide these parties in this. We therefore welcome them in our network with open arms.”
For several data centers in the Netherlands, we advised on the permitting procedures such as building, zoning and environmental as also the EU-ETS procedures. By having this process in order at an early stage, data centers can be operational as quickly as possible. In this process DGMR does not only takes into account the differences between the environment and spatial planning, but also has an eye for the cultural differences among foreign clients.
“As an engineering and consultancy company, we connect quality with creativity. We do look for the limits of possibilities and think along with our clients for optimal and integrated solutions. With our knowledge of the procedures for an environmental permit and our professional knowledge about, for example, noise, air quality, fire safety and energy, we support our clients from due diligence and design to completion and the commissioning of the data center”, according to Doede Wessels.
