David Ibarra, DPR's National Data Center Services Practice Leader and MEP Manager, will be part of a panel for a webinar that Engineering News-Record (ENR) is hosting. The topic is Data Center Evolution: Sustainability in Mission Critical Facilities. The free webinar takes place tomorrow, August 1st at 2-3 pm EDT.

Throughout his career, David Ibarra has worked on more than $1 billion worth of data center projects. Ibarra was selected by the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Steering Committee for the Datacenter Adaptation Working Group. He will be involved in making recommendations to change existing LEED credits specific to data centers.

Among other things, the focus of the webinar will be the innovative ways that contractors and designers are reducing power consumption in data centers for socially responsible companies. It will also cover how sustainability efforts will change within the dynamic data center marketplace.
