Within 12 months of inception the client was able to take down a primary site of roughly 10,000 useable square feet that was to be delivered “rack – ready” with UPS, air conditioning, two foot raised floor, generators, full engineering with an initial clean power load of 100 watts per square foot. Both the power level and floor space included expansion options which were later exercised. Capital outlay was minimized and an orderly migration occurred.
A second site was required to provide an adequate disaster recovery infrastructure. This site was larger, with a net savings in excess of $25MM being afforded to the client as the space was in a regular office building, with power and the majority of support services in place already. Some capital was required, with a quick payback due to reduced rent. SCRE facilities group not only helped to secure the space, but also played a role in reviewing MEP design which reduced capital outlay by nearly $5MM.
