Brasfield & Gorrie Starts Construction on DC BLOX’s Greenville Data Center
April 6, 2021
DC BLOX, a provider of interconnected multi-tenant data centers that deliver the infrastructure and connectivity essential to power today’s digital business, announces it has initiated construction of its Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina data center. The data center, designed to Uptime Institute’s Tier III standards, will be the first-of-its-kind multi-tenant data center in South Carolina. The facility will be capable of protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), providing enterprises and government entities throughout South Carolina access to a highly efficient, secure and interconnected data center – for the first time in this market. With an initial capacity of 1MW of critical IT load, the first phase of DC BLOX’s new Greenville data center is set to be completed by the third quarter of 2021.
DC BLOX continues to respond to shifts taking shape in the technology landscape, enabling businesses to digitize and implement distributed IT infrastructure solutions in areas traditionally underserved. The DC BLOX Greenville-Spartanburg multi-tenant regional data center delivers on this promise in both design and connectivity capabilities. When complete, the Greenville data center will offer access to DC BLOX’s private and redundant carrier-grade mesh-network connectivity ecosystem interconnecting the company’s portfolio of data centers throughout the southeast including: Atlanta, GA; Birmingham, AL; Chattanooga, TN; and Huntsville, AL.
“We’re grateful to partner again with DC BLOX and CEO Jeff Uphues, who are making a vital investment in the Upstate. Brasfield & Gorrie brings significant mission critical expertise to this project, having completed more than $2 billion in mission critical projects company-wide,” adds Brasfield & Gorrie Vice President and Division Manager Ben Barfield. Brasfield & Gorrie is the general contractor for the project. “DC BLOX’s investment will have a significant impact in the Greenville community, where Brasfield & Gorrie has worked for more than 30 years.”
