NEW YORK, Oct. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Faithful+Gould, a world-leading project and program management consultancy, is pleased to announce that the firm is expanding its Mission Critical / Data Center service offering in the Americas. This is a strategic initiative backed by Faithful+Gould Worldwide CEO Donald Lawson, stemming from the success that Faithful+Gould's larger worldwide team has seen in the Mission Critical / Data Center Sector, particularly in the Asia Pacific, U.K. and Europe regions.
Faithful+Gould Global Head of Corporate Real Estate Kevin Chrisp shared, "We see real potential to build on our global success in this sector within the Americas. We have been providing our constructive expertise in this sector across the Americas for 15 years and we hope to expand on our already strong service offering in the region as we align our focus to the growing data center market."
Data center development spend in the United States is expected to hit $3.1 billion in 2017 alone, with additional growth in 2018 as hyper-scale cloud providers such as Amazon, Google, Microsoft Alibaba, and Oracle continue to grow their services. Faithful+Gould's Americas region is well equipped to contribute to projects of this nature, having successfully completed integrated project and program management services, with an emphasis placed on owner's representative and cost and commercial management services, for some of the world's largest financial institutions, enterprise clients and technology giants.
Chrisp added, "Our existing data center clients in the Americas have been a driving force behind this strategic expansion. These clients have repeatedly selected our team in the Americas to handle their data center needs, to great results. Our continued success in this area, and the growing state of the data center market, make this the perfect time to expand our overall data center offering."
