Tier Certifications

Tier Certification of Constructed Facility ensures that a facility has been constructed as designed, and verifies that it is capable of meeting the defined availability requirements. Even the best-laid plans can go awry, and common construction phase practices or value engineering proposals can compromise the design intent of a data center.

The sites below have already been awarded Tier Certification of Design Documents and have progressed to Tier Certification of Constructed Facility after passing exhaustive review and demonstration of capabilities.

The Operational Sustainability rating, when determined by Uptime Institute, becomes a suffix to the Tier Certification.
