Sabey Data Centers Expands Capacity at its Flagship Campus in Seattle

Sabey will add 1,500 kW of capacity to its 300,000 square-foot main building at SDC Seattle


Seattle, WA—Seattle-based Sabey Data Center Properties announced today that it has commenced construction at its flagship SDC5 facility to add 1,500 kW of power available to its powered shell and turn-key co-location tenants at the property.

The additional capacity will be provided through the installation of all new air handling equipment and an additional 2,500 kW back-up generator at the campus’ main building – enough to power about 2200 average homes.

Rob Rockwood, President of Sabey Data Centers, said, “SDC Seattle’s Building 5 is both a historical and on-going success story for our firm. The property harkens back to our start, four decades ago, as the principal builder of ‘clean rooms’ for Boeing, to meet the demands of an aircraft industry that was becoming increasingly reliant on airborne automation hardware.”

He added, “After the implosion of many technology companies in the early 2000s, we received the building back through the bankruptcy of a large tech company with less than half of its 300,000 square feet of data center white space built-out and none of it fully commissioned. We undertook the completion of the commissioning and have leased and managed it ever since.

The facility includes both powered shell data center space and turnkey colocation data center space; out of the original 300,000 square feet of data center space, only approximately 25,000sf remains to be built-out.

John Ford, Vice President of Sabey Data Centers and General Manager of SDC Seattle added that SDC Seattle has multiple buildings with space available and two additional building lots adjacent. An ample amount of hydro-electric power serves the campus with major expansion capacity available. Sabey continues to build additional capacity on its campuses in Central Washington and in Ashburn Virginia.
