Iron Mountain (NYSE: IRM), a global leader in innovative storage, data center infrastructure, asset lifecycle management and information management services, today announced the BREEAM design certification of its Phoenix, AZ (AZP-2) data center — the first data center in North America to receive this top tier certification for building to a standard considered the highest for sustainable construction.
Iron Mountain is taking the lead on demonstrating the steps facility owners can take to ensure that their data centers are both efficient and resilient. Design for the AZP-2 facility has been certified under BREEAM’s New Construction standard, a globally recognized green building certification for new developments, and achieved BREEAM Excellent.
“The construction pipeline for data centers in the U.S. has continued to grow in recent years with no signs of slowing down any time soon, so it’s great to see an industry leader like Iron Mountain take charge in implementing a higher sustainability standard throughout its design and development processes,” said Breana Wheeler, Director of U.S. Operations at BRE. “As the national portfolio of data centers continues to expand, we look forward to adding value to owners and operators by providing a holistic, transparent assessment method that produces more valuable assets.”
Congratulations to Iron Mountain Data Centers and their Assessor, Longevity Partners.
