DENVER – FORTRUST, Colorado’s leading high-availability data center services provider and colocation facility, announced that it has approved the design for an approximate 33,000 square foot expansion project which will bring its raised-floor colocation capacity to more than 80,000 square feet within its 224,000 sq. ft. facility. Over the past six months, FORTRUST has employed a design competition with the best design engineers in the rocky mountain region. The competition was to finalize a full deployment plan for approximately 60,000 sq feet of raised floor in the FORTRUST data center. The goals/ parameters were to get maximum power (W/Sq ft), reduction in PUE for the entire facility and enhance FORTRUST’s current Green initiatives.

FORTRUST has selected Haselden Construction, The RMH Group, Ivins Design, Sturgeon Electric and RK Mechanical as the winning team. The FORTRUST team is now in the process of finalizing construction documents, planning, and permitting for the upcoming expansion.

FORTRUST’s colocation areas and supporting Critical Systems Infrastructure are of a modular design which allows the FORTRUST Data Center to grow and scale easily to meet its customers expanding business and Disaster Recovery needs. This data center expansion will offer additional premium space to businesses seeking highly reliable and secure colocation.

"The new design for our up-coming expansion allows for our customers to expand with the most technologically advanced and efficient environment to colocate their IT infrastructure and protect their data,” says Steve Knudson, FORTRUST’s Chief Executive Officer.

The Denver data center offers rapid provisioning and flexible configurations for any-size enterprise across a spectrum of industries. Beyond colocation, customers also may choose from a host of FORTRUST Managed Services to support their mission-critical data.

The new space will be flexible and scalable in that it may house a single customer in a private room or be segmented into private cages or suites. FORTRUST’s space and supporting infrastructure may be viewed in a data center video tour on the data center’s website.
