Revera begins construction of new data centre in Upper Hutt

IT infrastructure company, Revera recently gained building consent and began construction of a new data centre on Alexander Road.

Upper Hutt, Wellington NZ, 28 Oct 2011 - Revera, an IT infrastructure company, has begun work on a new data centre in Upper Hutt. The centre’s site is located along Alexander Road in the semi-developed Alexander Industrial Park.

News broke this week that Revera has won a major contract for IT infrastructure as a service (IaaS) for the Government’s Department of Internal Affairs. While the development in Trentham is already in progress to expand Revera’s capacity requirements, the news is a major win for the centre’s viability in the long term.

Revera’s choice of site is ideal for the large capacity Internet connectivity required to maximise the data centre’s service. The multiple fibre-optic cable access from the site is a future-proof service connection which is typical throughout the Alexander Business Park development. Revera’s project will provide a proof-of-concept case for the value that exists in the area for continued and future high-tech and Internet-enabled business. Along with this, the park takes full advantage of Upper Hutt’s ease of access to major transport routes.

After an initial investigation of multiple sites in the region, the 4,000 square metre site was one of six short-listed as a hazard-safe zone and was finally selected after geo-testing. Named ART (Alexander Road, Trentham), the facility will be Revera’s fifth data centre. “The addition of ART is a significant milestone in the continued build-out of our capacity,” said General Manager Business Development, Robin Cockayne.

“We are excited that Revera has seen the value that now exists in Upper Hutt’s infrastructure making it a viable choice for high-tech, high-demand service provision along with a land resource that offers a safe, scalable, and future-proof platform for building on,” said Upper Hutt Mayor, Wayne Guppy.

Upper Hutt City Council played an integral part in the speed with which Revera was able to begin works on the site. Following Revera’s application for consent, Council was able to expedite the process with its team-oriented approach, making sure that all details were correctly processed in an extremely timely manner.

“We are very grateful for the assistance we received for our building project from the Upper Hutt City Council, especially in working with us to meet the tight timeframes,” said Revera CEO, Gael Hargreaves. “We are very much looking forward to our opening and a very long relationship in the ensuing years to come.
