144 metres x 762 and 180 metres x 914 diameters

Gen-i and Revera constructed a $60 million enterprise class Data Centre that started construction in September 2013, and finished in mid 2014. It is a new Tier 3 greenfield Data Centre and is one of New Zealand’s largest and most sophisticated, housing up to 1200 racks.

The land there is very peaty and so casings were been driven down to an average of 8mtrs.

The facility will be of modular POD construction with 4 x 100 rack data halls in each POD and a strong focus on sustainability and energy efficiency.

Gen-i CEO Tim Miles says: “This is a fantastic investment for Gen-i and Revera, and more importantly, for our clients. The new Auckland facility will further increase our capability to deliver the Data Centre and cloud services that our clients increasingly need and want. We’re already receiving a substantial amount od interest in the new Auckland site from our clients, which underpinned our decision to build”.
