True data center consulting

Our Data Center Advisory Practice utilizes a true consulting approach to provide you with extensive solution options that extend far beyond simple real estate transactions, including market assessments, data center deployment strategies, and financial analysis. Our knowledge of how occupancy costs, site location, fiber optics, and technology trends impact individual businesses—along with our understanding of provider offerings in the market—allows us to provide a unique service approach.

We handle requirements ranging from large free-standing data centers to "non-real estate" solutions, such as managed hosting, cloud services, interconnect arrangements and simple rack deployments. We also are involved in emerging technology solutions, such as containerized and modular data centers.

Our unique backgrounds and experience allow us to bridge the gap between "traditional" real estate decision-making and the highly evolved complexities of IT real estate today. We align data center strategies with your goals and objectives.

We forge long-term relationships with our clients and go above and beyond, regardless of the size of your need. Our global network and principal-led culture, along with leading thought capital, helps ensure the best possible results for our clients.
