Archer Datacenters has chosen DLB Associates for the design and development of its first data center outside of Nashville.
The data center, located at 1398 Gateway Drive in Gallatin, TN, is expected to open in 2020. Phase 1 of construction will feature an approximately 55,000 sq ft data hall that is expected to facilitate up to 5MW of critical IT load, expandable to close to 10MW. The building can be replicated up to three times on the roughly 30-acre site, and Archer has secured a right of first refusal on an additional 30 acres adjacent to the site. The greenfield parcel has an adjacent electrical substation with minimal existing use.
