DataChambers and NC Research Campus Break Ground for New Regional Data Center

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. – November 18, 2013 – DataChambers, a North Carolina information technology company, and Castle & Cooke, Inc., the developer of the North Carolina Research Campus (NCRC) in Kannapolis, will break ground for a new data center at 11 a.m. Tuesday, November 19.

The event will be held at the site of the new data center on North Research Campus Drive at Dale Earnhardt Boulevard (details below). The 50,000-square-foot facility will add to the existing million square feet of Class A office and laboratory space on the N.C. Research Campus.

DataChambers announced the decision to expand into the Charlotte region in June, selecting the N.C. Research Campus for its easy access to the interstate and proximity to the Charlotte Douglas International and Concord Regional airports.

 

“The N.C. Research Campus gives us an ideal home base for serving Charlotte-area businesses and the growing NCRC campus community,” says Nicholas Kottyan, DataChambers CEO. “We are eager to have the project underway and have the space we need to serve our growing client base.”;

 

DataChambers currently operates data centers in Winston-Salem and Raleigh. The facility at NCRC is scheduled to be completed by mid-2014 and will be staffed by 20 to 30 IT professionals. DataChambers plans to host client systems at the new facility and to offer a variety of outsourced information technology services, including monitoring and management solutions, data backup and business recovery services.

 

To meet the rigorous standards of DataChambers and its clients, the new center will be built to withstand hurricane-force winds and will feature state-of-the-art systems for power, security, HVAC and network connectivity. It also will incorporate the latest LEED standards developed by the U.S. Green Building Council for energy-efficient operation.

 

Officials at the NCRC say the facility will strengthen the campus technology infrastructure and provide a critical Charlotte-area resource.

 

“We are so proud to have DataChambers join the N.C. Research Campus,” says Clyde Higgs, NCRC vice president of business development. “Together, we can further our role as a center of life science research that is championed so well by our many corporate and academic partners. DataChambers is not only an asset to the campus, but a critical asset to the technological infrastructure of the region.”

 

Two Charlotte-area businesses have been selected to support the DataChambers project. Architects at Creech & Associates will design the structure, while McCracken & Lopez, P.A., will provide mechanical, electrical and fire protection designs. Land Design is providing land planning and civil engineering.

 

Groundbreaking Details 

Key speakers at the November 19 groundbreaking will be DataChambers CEO Nicholas Kottyan and David Murdock, chairman and CEO of Castle & Cooke, owner of Dole Food Company and founder of the N.C. Research Campus. Kannapolis Mayor Bob Misenheimer and members of the Kannapolis city council are scheduled to attend. Parking will be available off Laureate Way and in the NCRC parking garage.

 

Campus Growth 

For the N.C. Research Campus, the DataChambers groundbreaking is the second in less than a month. The City of Kannapolis broke ground for a long-awaited 100,000-square-foot municipal center and policy department headquarters on October 29. Together, DataChambers and the City of Kannapolis will bring over 300 jobs to the campus.

 

The N.C. Research Campus has experienced continued growth with the opening of the NCRC Medical Plaza housing Carolinas Healthcare System earlier this year and the Cabarrus Health Alliance headquarters in 2012. The campus has also seen the addition of N.C. State University greenhouse facilities and speculative laboratory space in the David H. Murdock Core Laboratory building. Recently, the UNC Charlotte Bioinformatics Research Services Division announced an expansion of its office space on campus.

 

DataChambers is the eighteenth campus partner. The NCRC is already home to the David H. Murdock Research Institute and five corporate, two healthcare and nine academic partners.
