KINGSTON APPLIED TECHNOLOGY & ENGINEERING

Formed K8T Ltd in 2004 to provide Engineering Analysis and High Performance Computing (HPC) calculations primarily in Fluid Dynamics and Heat transfer. The main areas of the business being Building Physics, Environmental Wind Modelling, Pharmaceutical processes and Fire and smoke analysis. K8T Ltd also provides specialist evaluation of data centre mission critical environments as well as energy analysis of Buildings in the concept and operational stages.

The K8TMon energy management software was developed 6 years ago and has been key to optimising building performance. K8T developed the data centre infrastructure and management (DCiM) software tool called K8TRAM which allows management and analysis of datacentres providing high level of consultancy to Deloitte Touche DCarbon8, BT, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, and Standard Bank of South Africa, African Bank, Tsystems etc..
