Datascape | Architects Africa

THE COMPANY

Datascape Architects Africa is a specialised architectural design business, built for the real needs of the African continent.

We are dedicated to the specific project delivery needs of Data Centre developers, asset owners, contractors and operators. Data Centres are pivotal to the development of the African and global economy.

We work at the fluid centre of the information-rich present, and the knowledge-rich future. Data Centres impact how we share information, how we make data local and accessible, how we secure data, and how we mobilize it for the benefit of individuals, communities, businesses and governments.

The need for rapid expansion and technologically intelligent, BIM-rich project delivery is an absolute imperative in Data Centres. Datascape Architects Africa is being built for exactly that purpose: a technology-rich, human-centred company that is driven by Curiosity and Empathy.

The African continent is one of the most active landscapes for greenfield and brownfield Data Centres.

A burgeoning youth population and increasing global connectedness are driving the need for reduced latency and transactional stability. Co-lo­cation and the caching of high-demand content for speedy delivery to Africans are behind the demand push in data centre development.

We know and understand the multi-stakeholder relationships between asset owners, data centre operators, ‘major tech’ tenants, and technical advi­sors. We have worked for and with DC developers, global DC operators, online retailers, banks, mobile telephony companies, power utilities, and as sub-consultants for multi-disciplinary engineers.

Datascape Architects Africa is your partner for continental African Data Centre and Voice Centre development projects that connect the dots on the continent and connect the continent to the world.

THE TEAM > >

WHO

Land Owners, Asset Owners,
Property Developers,
Multi-Disciplinary Engineers,
Financiers, Owner-Operators,
Global Operators and Building
Contractors.


In our diverse
Client Ecosystem,
we know and understand
the multi-stakeholder
relationships between land owners,
building owners, data centre
operators, major tech tenants,
building contractors
and technical advisors.

WHAT

Architecture, BIM Management,
Lead Design. We Do Chaos.


We are Integrators, seeing the
big picture, driving the building
shell as the enabler of technology
deployment. And we care about the
people who work in Data Centres :
the precious few highly skilled
people who could work
anywhere, but choose to
be in Africa, now.

WHERE

African Capital Cities,
Second Tier Cities, and
Coastal CLS locations.


The number of undersea
cables and the networking of
existing terrestrial infrastructure
are unlocking the African continent.
With project experience
in 23 African countries,
we have deep and
valuable networks.

WHY

Fast Growth and Skills Shortages
make our dedicated team valuable.


The African and global
Data Centre industry is fluid
and dynamic, and skills are
highly mobile. We know how to
drive decision making in complex
rooms filled with specialist
experience but sometimes
thin on institutional memory
and continuity.

WHEN

Now. Africa as a continent has the same
Data Centre capacity as Switzerland.


Africa’s young cities demand
global connectedness,
reduced latency, transactional
stability, data sovereignty,
and data security. Co-location
and the caching of high demand
content for speedy delivery
to consumers are part of
the Demand Push.
