Data Foundry Plans Giant Austin Facility

May 27th, 2010 by · Leave a Comment

Another day, another few hundred thousand square feet of colocation space to be constructed.  This time it’s Data Foundry, which operates in Texas and is planning to build a brand new 250K square foot facility in Austin.  It will be able to deliver 100MW of power using feeds from two independent substations in order to handle.  The facility will cost about $150M and Phase 1 (the first 130K square feet) is expected to be finished in Q2/2011.  Here’s what it will look like:

Almost like a picture isn’t it?  But no, it doesn’t exist yet – that’s just a rendering from the design, complete with clouds and a bit of a tree overhanging – gotta love CAD software.

A plethora of other companies are assisting with the construction.  Gensler will handle the design, CCG Facilities Integration will contribute engineering services, and Holder Construction Company will do the actual building work.   Data Center Knowledge had more details on Data Foundry, which I am just now reading up on.
