SiTESPAN as commissioned by ISG to evaluate their existing underground data center and provide a business case analysis of upgrading the existing space and the potential to expand in a cave area.

Upon completion of the study, the SiTESPAN team created a business strategy report for developing a new data center space within the property. The plan is designed to phase and pace the capital expenditure with projected sales goals and revenue generation in four phases of build-out. The report included: Facility Strategy Overview Phased Approach, Capital Cost VS Revenue Strategy spreadsheet, Staffing Plan, and Preliminary Electrical Drawings and Facility Floor-plan and Isometric.
