Building Blocks of Data Center Construction handbook

As organizations are forced to build new data center facilities with less, mistakes can be costly. This handbook walks you through a successful data center construction project -- from site selection to final inspection and testing.

Data Center Construction: Building Blocks of a Data Center Construction
By Stephen J. Bigelow

Data center demands continue to skyrocket, forcing organizations to build new facilities with little funds. This handbook can help you future-proof your investments and avoid costly construction mistakes.

This handbook discusses the steps of a solid data center construction project:


  • Site selection
  • Data center conceptualization and cost analysis
  • Negotiating with contractors
  • Choosing a commissioning agent and finalizing your project
