Confidential Hyper-scale Data Center Washington

A confidential global client develops mission critical projects across multiple locations in the Western hemisphere to meet strict delivered timelines so that colocation sales and connectivity commitments can be delivered in a fast-paced growing market. Each of the 47 separate data center facilities involved campus site and infrastructure development that includes large amounts of power and water.

Oversight of Numerous Sites for Mission Critical Development

While involving multiple design firms, the total program represents over 5,640,000 square-feet of mission critical development and a combined program value in excess of $5.6B. Oversight of these teams as well as site due diligence reports, schematic design deliverables and reviews was centrally managed by Otak. With locations spanning several countries, the project team worked directly with the client to assess and apply cultural and jurisdictional differences in environmental and building permitting. Each of the countries in LATAM as well as the different provinces in Canada present unique differences to the teams as compared to the usual methods encountered in the US. The owner’s representative team also preformed design construction administration while developing training programs for other design team managers.
