Rubicon Professional Services Oversees Expansion of Internap Seattle Data Center

Rubicon's Design, Build, Construction Management, Equipment Procurement and Integration Services Help Internap Keep Its 7,500 Square-Foot Expansion Project On-Time and On-Budget

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2010) -  Rubicon Professional Services, a leading national provider of full-service energy management, consulting, engineering and construction management for mission-critical facilities, today announced that its experienced team played a vital role in helping Internap meet its aggressive data center expansion timeline at its Seattle-area facility. Internap (NASDAQ: INAP), a company offering Internet connectivity, colocation, managed hosting and content delivery network services throughout the world, selected Rubicon to assist with the construction management, equipment procurement and integration processes required to add 7,500 square feet of colocation space to its Seattle-area facility, now open to new tenants within the Sabey Intergate campus in Tukwila, Washington.

"We selected Rubicon Professional Services for this important expansion in our Seattle market because their team possesses the technical expertise and construction experience we require in all aspects of the design, equipment integration and building of mission-critical facilities," said Randy Ortiz, director of data center Design with Internap. "Our aggressive schedule for this data center expansion required a team with the experience that included design, engineering and construction management. Our expansion opened on schedule, on budget, and with the equipment required to operate it reliably, thanks to Rubicon."

The expansion of Internap's colocation facility is the third expansion in this location since its initial opening. The first two phases were constructed by Rubicon. The addition of net sellable space reflects the growing demand by enterprise customers across a range of industries -- including e-commerce, financial services and online retailers -- to shift the storage, maintenance and support of IT infrastructure to outsourced colocation facilities.

Rubicon's design/build, construction management and Equipment Integration professionals worked directly with Internap's in-house construction team, local officials, contractors and industrial equipment manufacturers to streamline permits, compress build schedules, expedite materials and equipment delivery and ensure that all equipment is integrated properly, keeping the complex project and all its partners on task. Rubicon's engineers were engaged early in the design process to develop a precise design, build, equipment procurement and integration solution that achieved the technical and reliability requirements of the project, while driving efficiencies in the design and purchasing processes to help ensure the project's financial success.

"Rubicon is proud to be an integral part of the team of professionals who completed the expansion of Internap's Seattle-area data center facility," said Eric Holzworth, chief operating officer of Rubicon Professional Services. "Our team has a unique understanding of the needs and requirements of mission-critical facilities operators to complete construction projects on an aggressive timeline -- without compromising quality. Rubicon has the experience and relationships to manage all aspects of data center builds like Internap's, and we have proven ourselves to be a trusted vendor that assumes full accountability."
