In Tenaga Nasional Berhad’s (TNB) inaugural Data Centre in Cyberjaya, a holistic and sustainable approach was taken to design the building and its supporting infrastructures. Surrounded by a green and resilient environment, the Data Centre is designed for flexibility and future-proofing, incorporating green and low-carbon processes including embodied and operational CO2 considerations. This enhanced sustainable outlook looks to advance TNB’s net zero agenda, making it the first of its kind in Malaysia.

Alluding to the concept of a digital twin, the Data Centre translates the transfer of information between the physical realm and the digital world via a cloud network into two highly distinctive architectural forms.

The comprehensive nature-based solutions inform a strategic landscape design that not only enhances occupants’ contact with the outdoors, but also decreases surrounding temperatures by 3-5°C.

Peripheral landscaping lends a biophilic touch to the Data Centre, foliage not directly incorporated into the building due to plant sensitivity in a high-tech environment. Rainwater run-off is carefully managed through a bioswale and drainage cells at surface parking areas as part of a dedicated stormwater management system.
