Former Air Force Base to become a secure and energy-efficient data centre

A former Air Force base command centre, known as the SAGE building, is likely to be redeveloped as a secure and energy-efficient data centre. 

The property, located in Michigan is under contract with an undisclosed purchaser. Plans are to retrofit the building into a mission-critical Tier-3 data centre with an office for information technology-related uses, including sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF) rooms. It would be powered by 100-per cent-renewable primary energy.

The project could be used for secure data storage, disaster recovery or storage of items of value. The building could be ready for occupancy by the end of next year. However, the project is subject to a number of contingencies and approvals.
