The Data Center of the Century

Can we build a data center that lasts 100 years or more?

That’s the question our Michael Silla, SVP and leader of our Mission Critical Center of Excellence at Skanska USA, sought to answer in a recently published piece in CIO Review Magazine.

“When you think about how regularly and spectacularly technology leaps forward, poorly planned data centers can be legacy (obsolete) before they are even completed,” writes Michael. “When you think about how reliant we are on the cloud to support technology that fits in the palm of our hands – and how that technology supports an entire economic system – we need to think beyond the typical 50-year lifespan of a building that houses the infrastructure that powers that process.”
