Strategic appointment to grow data centre business

Multidisciplinary engineering consultancy Cundall has appointed Benny Cheah as Associate Director, in a global role based in Melbourne.

Cheah will have a key role to lead the Melbourne building services team and, having led, designed and delivered data centres for most of the last decade in Australia, part of his role will also be to expand the business’s thriving data centre offering in the Australian market.

Throughout his career, Cheah has amassed extensive experience leading teams on large multidisciplinary projects in various markets including high-rise commercial, casinos, infrastructure and critical systems. He has a specialised focus on the design and delivery of data centres, having worked with one of the world’s largest data centre companies on its multiple facilities in Australia for the last eight years.

“This is a great opportunity. I am pleased to join Cundall as part of their leadership team in Australia to help drive the continued growth of the local buildings and data centre market in the region. I look forward to partnering with our clients, understanding their drivers for success and delivering on the required solutions,” Cheah said.

Managing Partner of Cundall Australia Garrit Schot said Cheah is a welcome addition.

“We are hugely excited to welcome Benny to the team. In recent years, our global data centre offering has grown steadily, with our team designing some of the biggest, most sophisticated and most sustainable data centres in the world. To date, these projects have been mostly in Asia and Europe, so with Benny’s help, we look forward to expanding this expertise into the Australian market,” he said.
