Vantage Data Centers has begun expansion work on its campus in Goodyear, Arizona.
The company this week announced that it has begun the second phase of construction; the additional capacity is scheduled to be operational in the spring of 2024.
Once fully developed, the 50-acre campus will offer 160MW of IT capacity across three facilities totaling more than 1 million square feet (92,900 sqm).
The company held a celebratory ceremony with Goodyear Mayor Joe Pizzillo and various officials from the City of Goodyear attending.
“As we continue to drive exponential growth across the globe, Vantage is proud to partner with officials in Goodyear to meet the increased demand for data centers in the region,” said Sam Huckaby, senior vice president, construction, North America for Vantage Data Centers. “We appreciate Mayor Pizzillo, the City of Goodyear officials, and Arizona Public Service Company (APS) for their ongoing collaborative partnership to help bring this campus to fruition. We are committed to investing in the community, and at the same time, to being a responsible corporate citizen to meet the needs of our customers while preserving precious resources in Arizona.”
“We are proud that Vantage selected our Mission Critical team as the design-build partner on the expansion of its Goodyear campus,” added Ryan Ferguson, vice president, and project executive with the Mission Critical team at McCarthy Building Companies, the general contractor for phase two of the development. “Thanks to the collaboration between Vantage, the city, APS, and with all design and construction partners, we are well-positioned for this fast-paced project, even with today’s challenging market conditions, to achieve the schedule and budget goals.”
Key construction trade partners on the phase two expansion include Corgan Architects, Rosendin Electric, Southland Industries, and KW Mission Critical.
