Crews working at Aligned Energy’s 26-acre campus in Ashburn took a few minutes off work yesterday to celebrate the topping out of the first data center building.
The campus will feature 687,000 square feet and 180 megawatts of data center operations on UUnet Drive in the core of Ashburn’s data center alley.
As the crews dined on lunch catered by Res-Q BBQ, the project completion clock displayed on the wall continued to count down—with 103 days and 11 hours to complete their work.
Aligned CEO Andrew Schaap addressed the large crowd commending them on their focus on safety and high-quality workmanship.
“Safety is critical in the data center environment. It underpins everything that we do at Aligned—and it starts with all of us,” he said. “I’m proud of the team’s stellar safety record at the Ashburn site as well as across all of our data center locations. It’s our mission to do more to make Aligned an even safer environment.”
Aligned also has data centers in Dallas, Phoenix and Salt Lake City.
