Construction Update | Independence Ohio Data Center


Incredible progress is being made on the Independence Data center. The mild Ohio winter and a seasoned construction team helped mitigate any scheduling conflicts due to weather or other common construction delays.

The Involta Ohio team is preparing for the home stretch. Final equipment delivery and installation are underway, with commissioning and client migration activities just around the corner.

“We are nearing the finish line,” stated Tom Lang, Data Center Manager, Ohio Region. “Soon we’ll be planning for final commissioning, client migration and our grand opening.”

  • Roof – decking and final seal is complete
  • Data Center – flooring is poured and complete
  • Electrical Equipment – currently being delivered, placed and installed
  • Telecommunications Equipment – currently being delivered

Innovative Airflow Solutions

Our construction team is also preparing to install DataSox™, the innovative, customizable, porous/diffuse fabric ventilation system, developed by Involta with DuctSox®, the leading manufacturer of fabric HVAC air dispersion systems. We’ve seen great success with DataSox in our Marion, Iowa data center, and look forward to opening Independence with top-of-the-line air distribution, reduced sound level and efficient power usage.
