We emphasize sustainable practices, quality control, employee education, the most up-to-date technology and superb communication. Incorporating sustainable practices before they were mainstream has allowed the company to be ahead of the “Green” game; from the first solar panel installation in 1997 to proudly engineering one of the first, largest LEED Gold data centers in the United States.

Unlike many larger firms, GDS has the flexibility to incorporate last-minute changes and client requests while maintaining Principal involvement and customized service. With an average tenure of over eleven years, many of our engineers have stayed at GDS to exercise their creative abilities and innovative problem solving designs.

GDS has always enjoyed the ability to freely communicate, solve project challenges, and work with the entire design and construction team, regardless of contracts, for the ultimate benefit of the client. We believe that by providing an approach and dedication to design that focuses on the value of the service provided and concentrates effort around the client’s needs, a successful project ensues.
