The general contractor on the project is FCL Builders, Ware Malcomb is the architect of record and Kimley-Horn is the civil engineer.

Sustainable features throughout the complex will include advanced waterless cooling technology and ultra-efficient energy systems.

The development will also feature:

ComEd will provide infrastructure to power the new data center campus from its nearby regional substation. Additionally, Seefried and Edged Energy will be adding a new substation onsite to support future phases of the development.
