PTS Data Center Solutions Featured in Data Center Construction Runbook
Franklin Lakes, NJ - Peter Sacco, president of PTS Data Center Solutions,
is featured in SearchDataCenter.com's data center construction runbook, an online guide which
walks readers through the process of a data center build-out.
Published in multiple installments, Chapter 1 of the runbook discusses a variety of issues associated
with data center site selection, including how to narrow your location options, the staffing potential
of communities, state and federal tax credits, security considerations and international site selection.
In Chapter 2, "Selecting a Winning Data Center Design team", Peter Sacco stresses the importance of utilizing
the correct support infrastructure when designing a data center. In the past, data center designers relied on
the cost per square foot as the measure for expense; for the modern data center design that is no longer the case.
Chapter 3, "Selecting a General Contractor," explores
problems in the design-bid-build process and recommends alternative approaches,
such as an "open book" or a "CM-at-risk" process. Sacco explains, "What's common
in a place like New York City
is, for every project you'll use the same general contractor, but your general
contractor has an open book, and he shares the biggest base bids with you."
The SearchDataCenter.com data center construction runbook also includes insights from
other data center experts, including James S. Coe, PE, RCDD, a senior vice president
of the Syska Hennessy Group (www.syska.com), and Larry Smith, president and owner of
ABR Consulting Group (www.abrconsulting.com).
