Despite a wobbling economy, demand for data centers remains strong. Traditional compute requirements, the move to the cloud, and new workloads like artificial intelligence are increasing the need for new builds.

Hyperscalers like Google and Microsoft are after ever larger deployments, pushing companies to develop gigawatt campuses, despite an increasingly constrained and limited grid.

At the same time, to ensure that hyperscale companies don't just build it themselves, data center developers need to deploy faster than ever, shaving every second they can off of their own offerings, while keeping to the exacting standards of the tech giants.

So what does it take to build at scale in today's environment? We speak to QTS, DPR Construction, HITT and more.
