WHAT WE DO

We work for you, by working with you.

Datacenter projects are complex real estate developments. We collaborate with ambitious leaders to help develop superb datacenter strategies that minimize exposure and maximize return on investment.

We tend to wear many hats. From initial concept (or need) through development and disposition, we supplement leadership teams with nearly a decade of experience in design, development, marketing, and leasing in the third party datacenter sector.

CASE STUDIES

Over the years, we have worked with some of the most innovative and ambitious datacenter leaders and clients. The following are a few of our recent engagements.

WE KNOW WHAT WE'RE DOING

True datacenter expertise is difficult to find. Our clients are senior executives who value our vendor-agnostic, impact-oriented approach. Engineers often don't understand finance, and bankers often don't understand engineering. We work in the gray area where engineering, IT, and finance converge. Our datacenter strengths are differented in four critical areas:

FULL-CIRCLE EXPERTISE

Capitalizing, designing, developing, and marketing over one million square feet of datacenter projects results in a comprehensive understanding of critical components of datacenters. From pitch book to development and leasing, we have hands-on experience with nearly every element of the datacenter equation.

COMPETITIVE DYNAMICS

Having worked with or competed against the largest names in the retail and wholesale colocation business, we know every player and their strategies very well. Whether it is a design to enhance long-term customer appeal or paramount market knowledge to guide investment, we position our clients to win.

INNOVATION
MINDED

The datacenter sector requires continuous improvement. However, market leaders are not usually leaders in innovation. We admire young companies that are focused on inventing the future and thrive working in these environments. This, in turn, enables us to deliver best of breed innovation and strategies to our clients.

DEEP INDUSTRY RELATIONSHIPS

Connecting the dots and building the right relationships takes time. We have formed long-term relationships with leading innovators, developers, customers, engineers, architects, investors and bankers in the datacenter sector, many of which become partners or customers of our clients.

WHO WE SERVE

We have advised some of the most respected investors, developers, and operators in the datacenter sector.

We continue to grow our client base and look forward to hearing from you.
