Hong Kong Urban Renewal Authority approves hyperscale data centres

Two contracts totaling US$3 million.

The Hong Kong Urban Renewal Authority and a large data centre operator awarded NV5 two contracts totalling $US3 million to support the modernization of mechanical building systems and the development of a hyperscale data centre in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong’s Urban Renewal Authority selected NV5 for a three-year, $US2 million contract to provide inspections and administration engineering services to upgrade approximately 700 elevators in the Kowloon Region.

The upgrade will bring the elevators into compliance with safety provisions and current regulations established by the Hong Kong government. NV5 was also awarded a $US1 million contract by a major data centre operator to provide mechanical and electrical design services and commissioning services for a 20-megawatt hyperscale data centre. The project is expected to be completed in 2022.

“We are pleased with the continued organic growth of our international business in Asia and the Middle East,” said Dickerson Wright, PE, Chairman and CEO of NV5. “NV5’s strategy to offer complete building systems services including mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design as well as reoccurring commissioning and energy efficiency services provides a competitive advantage for our international and domestic facilities businesses.”

“These wins are a testament to NV5’s reputation for buildings systems services in Hong Kong, and we are well-positioned to capitalize on a strong pipeline of opportunities throughout our international markets,” said Keith Cheong, International Executive Director at NV5.
