With well established data center facilities in New York City and across the eastern portion of Washington state, Sabey was looking to expand into the Washington, DC suburb of Ashburn, Virginia. The area is widely known as the largest and fastest-growing data center hub in the world. Selected for its demonstrated expertise in the data center market, Envise and parent company Southland Industries were engaged from the greenfield stages to consult and provide design-build services for the construction of a new Sabey facility. Envise was also tapped to assist with the relocation of the company’s command center for its eastern seaboard operations to Ashburn.
By collaborating with Sabey from the project’s inception, Envise gained a deep understanding of the organization’s business model, expectations and success metrics. We were then able to take a holistic view of the facility’s full lifecycle and deliver a highly customized approach to the design and construction of the new command center and all mechanical and building automation systems. The success of the project laid the foundation for what is now a longstanding partnership based on transparency and trust. Today, Envise continues to provide critical monitoring, alarming and reporting via the building’s automation systems. We are also consulting on the design of a second Sabey facility in Ashburn.
