About the Client: Fortune Data Centers was a leading developer, owner and operator of data centers. In 2014, it announced that it and Dallas Infomart, both wholly-owned by the ASB Allegiance Real Estate Fund, would combine their resources and assets under a single operating name, Infomart Data Centers.
Project Description: Fortune’s San Jose facility is among the largest and most efficient data centers in Silicon Valley and consists of 3 buildings, which when fully developed, will support approximately 16MW of critical IT load. It is also the first multi-tenant data center in the U.S. to receive the prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification – meaning 100% of Fortune’s tenants are LEED Gold. Credit was given for use of highly efficient electrical and mechanical infrastructure, 1,137 tons of construction material diverted from landfill, Power Usage Effectiveness Rating (PUE) of 1.37 at full load, and regionally sourced and recycled content for construction.
Nova Partners’ Role: Nova Partners was engaged as the project manager to manage this technically challenging project, from the start to its successful and timely completion. Nova implemented design review, submittal review, budget tracking and schedule update processes to assure project success.
