What is Technology Consultancy?

Digital technology is advancing at pace and continuing to shape the built environment. Buro Happold provide the technology expertise clients require to determine and implement their digital vision. 

Our clients can benefit from bespoke strategies, followed by robust engineering solutions that holistically consider risk, operational requirements, the business case for technology investment and the wider architectural vision. By engaging in leading research and development, we navigate and influence industry and the regulatory and statutory landscape. 

Our experience and position across digital technology and the construction industry uniquely qualifies us to offer services uncommon to traditional engineering practices. We work directly with clients to uncover benefits that can be realised through the successful deployment of a broad range of technologies. Alongside this, we work with architects, technical specialists, utilities providers, technology providers, contractors, engineers and other stakeholders across all project phases to ensure the building design scheme is capable of meeting the current and future digital needs of its users.

What sort of projects could you work on?

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

While initially providing communications infrastructure design, our lead consultants identified a series of risks involving several stadium-specific technology packages. Subsequently, our work has expanded to provide design and procurement support across an array of discrete technology packages.

Battersea Power Station

Such a significant building in both London’s history and skyline required very high levels of detail as part of the redevelopment of this industrial icon. Buro Happold developed the offices for a multi-national firm setting occupying the main power station building.

The technology design had to consider not only the comprehensive requirements of the ultimate client, but also the complexities of delivering connectivity across this site and within a protected building. A comprehensive and flexible infrastructure solution was designed to allow the userbase to constantly alter their accommodation to enable a variety of specialist needs and spatial configurations. As well as infrastructure demands out Technology team worked with a significant number of stakeholders to ensure a coordinated smart building technology package could be developed leveraging some of the occupants own innovative technologies.

The Louvre Museum, Abu Dhabi

This project presented the opportunity to develop a truly comprehensive and detailed technology brief. In a building that is a work of art, our team worked closely with the architect, client and museum experts to ensure that seamless, scalable and – above all – invisible technology could be integrated into the fabric of the structure.

A vast range of technology elements required our team to deliver a high level of attention. Many components were custom-designed for the project; of these, several were precisely tailored just for the part of the museum in which they are installed. Moreover, careful consideration was necessary to ensure that the procurement and supply chain could deliver on time and to specification.
