CyrusOne has put its new 120,000-square-foot Phoenix II data center in Chandler online after using a building technique that cut construction time to 107 days—about a 10th the amount of time expected for similar projects. The facility will continue to grow with plans calling for the firm to double the current size and provide up to 24 megawatts of power.
To build the center’s first phase, CyrusOne used its Massively Modular® just-in-time approach that focuses on supply chain management, standardization of design, and use of interchangeable, modular building blocks at the same time computer manufacturers are making the IT equipment for the data center.
Plans call for CyrusOne to have up to 1 million square feet of data center space on its campus. It would provide more than 100 megawatts, making it one of the largest and most energy-efficient facilities in the nation.
