The challenge

The real estate and facility needs of data centers are costly and complex. Our client was searching for space that could accommodate the latest high-tech equipment in a secure location and desired to remain confidential during the process.

The space needed to accommodate a wide list of requirements, including the ability to support conditioned, uninterruptible power systems, multiple HVAC systems with backups, fire suppression systems, and back-up generators. Security was also a key component.

The solution

Having as much infrastructure in place is a key component to reducing costs. Plante Moran Cresa (PMC) was able to understand our client's requirements and identify all feasible options. We helped the client successfully secure a lease on a previous data center with a heavy amount of infrastructure in place, saving millions of dollars in capital expense.

The benefit

Due to the nature of a data center project, it’s critical to know where your advisor’s fiduciary duty lies. At PMC, we solely represent our clients and never a landlord or building. This allows us to locate all the options aligned to our client’s requirements.
